Unfortunately, Cubase 6.5 runs horribly on my system
The problem lies with selecting notes in the key editor. Doing this during playback gives all sorts of audio glitches where the metronome is doing all kinds of weird stuff and even midi output stutters.
Here’s the repro:
Open new project.
Add a midi track and route it anywhere. (I routed it to my hardware synth using my Midex 8 interface).
Record a part with some notes.
Playback the part.
---------------- Untill here everything is fine.
Open the key editor and hit ctrl + A to select all notes.
Result: All notes are selected, and a warning popup telling me the project is unstable and I should save it under a new name and restart Cubase.
Click OK, and while the song is playing, select and deselect some notes.
Result: Time glitches cause midi output AND audio output (metronome) to glitch, sending several midi note start and stop messages on every selection, and the metronome tones will sound out of time or even stretched whenever a note is selected during playback.
Ignoring the error message will slowly kill Cubase, where every function I try to access simply dissapears from the GUI when clicking on it. For instance adding another midi track now will make the inspector invisible, and midi instruments will dissappear completely when trying to open them.
After a while it’ll just crash to desktop and Windows tells me it has to apply compatibility options to make the program more stable or something along those lines.
This happened 5 times now, with both new projects in 6.5 and old projects from 6.0.5.
I’ll dig up the crash log.
edit: the error message tells me the crashlog should be in C:\program files\Steinberg\Cubase\Cubase6.log but that file isn’t there.
