Reported to Steinberg. Thank you.

Thanks Martin . I am going to try 13.0.40 anyway to see if anything else seems better.

also I did go back to 13.0.30 and that doesn’t crash on quit with any of the above projects


The crash file points to the very same issue as this one.


Could you try to rename/remove all Cubase preferences folders, to get Cubase factory settings, please?

Cubase Preferences folders are:
Mac: ~/Library/Preferences/Cubase X
Where the X is the Cubase version (for example 13).

Can you reproduce it with any project, or only one project, please?

Would you be willing to share your project with me, please? Without the *.wav files, just the *.cpr. You can share a link via Private Message with me, so don’t share it publically. Thank you.

Yes I’ll give it a go this morning , it’s. Crashing on quite with all projects I open , I was able to work in this latest update for two or three hours with no crashes whilst working upon closing crashed

I will try removing the preference folder to see if this makes a difference. Also send you a project later this morning.

I was just preparing a test session for you. I open 13.0.40 added 20 HALion 7.
and Cubase quit, see log

note at this point I have not removed the preferences. I will check again and update you.

The crash is in the very same area. It seems, it’s just another way, how to provoke the crash.

Thank you for that.

ok so just trashed all C13 pref , started clean with 13.0.40 , opened my wip template and 13.0.40 quit

not sue if its the same crash

I have now linked this crash to closing the Mixer window , (I did check and 13.0.30 works fine)

also to note this is with the clean prefs

We have found the core of the crash. Cubase crashes, if there is Meter Bridge enabled, the Wave-view is enabled on the Meter Bridge and you close the MixConsole.

As a workaround (for now), disable the Meter Bridge, or switch the view of the Meter Bridge to PPM, please.


Epic will do ! I can confirm this fixes this my end.





The hotfix has been released.
