Cubase 13 / MacOS: Transpose Hotkey not working in some occasions

  1. Make project
  2. Record midi
  3. Open Key editor
  4. Select notes
  5. Press Shift+Up/Down on your keyboard

What should happen:

Notes get transposed one octave up/down.

What instead happens:

Notes transpose only one half tone.

The transpose hotkey is a common function inside the Cubase Key Editor.

Here is a video of it performing incorrectly:

I had Shift+Up/Down pressed for the movement shown here.

This seems to happen sporadically though. There is no scenario that can reproduce it reliably. After a restart of Cubase 13, the issue seems to be gone.

I came across this while scoring an ensemble piece with more than 70 instances of EW OPUS loaded.




There are similar reports like this. Unfortunately, I still can’t reproduce it.

Allright, after opening another one of my bigger orchestral projects, for the most part using EW OPUS, it happened again. It must certainly have something to do with high RAM/DSP usage and/or disk streaming?
