Cubase 5.5.3 crashes when creating marker

Since I upgraded my cubase 5 to the latest version, following the instructions, it crashes everytime I create a marker on a marker track.
I work on a Mac, osx 10.5.8, 2Ghz, 4Go.
I couldn’t find any solution in faqs, forums or go0gle.
Anyone having the same problem?
Help needed.


I create markers so often, I know that’s not one I can reproduce. What does the LOG file indicate the culprit is? How are you creating the marker, with the pencil or the track?

I use the track. (same effect with the pencil)

Here’s the log (and I don’t get a thing!)
(if I can cut somewhere to shorten it, just let me know :wink:

Hi again,

Since it says the application is crashing, we know that it’s not something else Cubase uses such as Quicktime.

Since it says:

We know that this is a RAM/CPU issue, specifically sigbus. Next time you create a marker watch your CPU/RAM levels. I would pursue optimizing your Mac for DAW performance. Anything you can do to lighten your Mac’s load such as !!disabling network adapters!!, will help. Read this for specific instructions:[keyword_search]=Optimizing

thanks for the tips bane, i’ll have a look over it and let know when i find the solution
