Hi All,

I have the exact same issue on Mac OSX with Cubase Pro 12 crashing on start-up has anyone found a solution for Mac OSX Yet?

Yes, this might be a considerable part of the problem. I run Windows 11.


Hello, we are waiting for a solution from dear Erich


@internationalrecords, @ollybui

Thanks for your crash reports, it’s crashing because you’re running macOS on a PC machine. We officially do not support Hackintosh computers (therefore Cubase is untested on these machines) but we’ll try to fix this crash during startup with the next maintenance update.

Hi Erich,

This is also happening on my Mac OSX also which is not a Hackintosh it is a Mac Pro Trashcan 2013 running Big Sur. Is this also going to be fixed?


I have the same problem cubase 12 is activated but it wont start…crashes at start, tried deleting all the plugins but it wont start…im on big sur…pls help!!!

@jdockerty : can you send me the crashlog via a private message? Thanks!

So this must be Big Sur problem. I’ve been relying on my hackintosh machine with Cubase 11 for so long and so far I did not have any problems :smiley: .
