I started experiencing some freezes with Cubase 12. I’m using Cubase since SX 2.
Windows 11 Pro (22H2), AMD Ryzen 9 5900X, 64GB RAM, Radeon RX 6600, ASUS Prime X570-P
RME UFX II (driver 0.9827 / 13-09-23 )
Steps to trigger the issue on my system:
Create new, empty project with default settings.
Then go to: Project setup > Sample Rate > change to whichever supported (in my case from 44.1 to 48 KHz) > Ok > Cubase freezes
Create new, empty project and, on Project Setup window - change the currently displayed sample rate to other supported sample rate > OK > Cubase freezes and does not create a new project.
Working with a project with e.g. 48KHz sample rate, then close it. Then try to open the project with a different sample rate > Cubase freezes
This started happening some time ago, maybe a month or two. Some new plugins were obviously installed during this time, nothing exotic - Fabfilter, new Relab Quantum, new TDR filter tools bundle, Melodyne Sudio - those type of things.
I would be extremely grateful if you could check these dump files and give me some tips.
[EDIT] Ok (actually, not really “ok”), I found the reason after locking the preferences folder. To make a long story short - the Sonarworks plugin (current version) in the Control Room Panel was what was causing the problem.
At one point I remembered that I had reported this problem to them about a month ago when I found that the Sonarworks plugin was causing Wavelab Pro 11.2 to freeze after using Wavelab’s native Resampler plugin. Sonarworks was used in Wavelab’s playback section.
Therefore, I already had a preset with a correction curve prepared for the Pro-Q3.
I’ve recently been working on same SR in Cubase for a long time and didn’t think that there could be the same problem as in Wavelab.
So for now I have to say goodbye to Sonarworks in monitoring until they fix it.
