Cubase 12 crashes when removing track

When attempting to remove a track in Cubase 12 Pro, the DAW crashes. I’m using a Mac with Monterrey installed.


I was able to delete the tracks after restarting Cubase 12 Pro without midi devices on.


Could you attach the *.crash/ips file, please?

Mac: macOS Console utility > User Reports folder or Crash Reports in macOS 10.15 (or ~user/Library/Logs/Diagnostic Reports).

Which track type did you remove? Where there any plug-ins involved?

It was an audio track. No plugins, just an empty track I wanted to delete.

Reported to Steinberg. Thank you.

Could you try with the latest Cubase 12.0.10, please?

I have not had this issue with Cubase 12.0.10. Tracks delete without crashing in the latest version.

I’m glad to hear. Thank you for letting us know.

I’m having a similar problem. Cubase crashes when I select “Project → Remove Empty Tracks”. Trying to remove about 30 tracks in one shot. Running Cubase 12.0.40, also on Mac Monterey w/ an M1 Pro in Rosetta mode. Log file attached.

Update: I restarted with 3rd party plugins disabled and it worked ok. Must be something to do with one of the plugins…
