Cubase 12 crashes using GPU AI acceleration in Spectralayers 10

Crashes using GPU acceleration.
Works using CPU.

Have sent crash report to Steinberg.

  1. Start SpectraLayers 10 and set AI acceleration in preferences for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060.
  2. Exit SpectraLayers.
  3. Start Cubase 12.
  4. Import audio file.
  5. Select track and then Audio->Extensions->SpectraLayers.
  6. In SpectraLayers, Unmmix->Song.
  7. Immediately get a crash report.
  8. In SpectraLayers, Edit->Preferences->System->AI Processing Device->CPU.
  9. Repeat Unmix->Song.
  10. Very slow, but works!

can you attach it to a reply?

Cubase 64bit 2023.8.1 (1.3 MB)

The workaround for this issue is in the documentation (see the Note under AI Processing Device):

SL10 Patch 2 will have a proper fix and won’t require this workaround anymore.


I followed the work-around and it is working without crashing. The speed is radically improved!

Now to remember to remove it when the fix is in.
