Cubase 7.5.30 - "NOT" ROCK SOLID > 88.2/32 [ SOLVED ]

7.5.30 update is “NOT” rock solid now !!!

LARGE PROJECTS…in 88.2 / 32 is still not working

Sorry I spoke to fast

I have the same issues as here:

Thank you!

It starts almost instantly and doesn’t hang when I quit.

EUControl 3.1.3 runs perfectly (after making sure that ‘app nap’ is turned off for EUControl).

This is the most solid that Cubase has ever been for me!

Thank you thank you.

(Now about version EIGHT…). :laughing:

:slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Another satisfied customer!
Trying out .30 on a partition here and agreed!

Solid here as well. (so far).

Cubase rocks!

Agreed. 7.5.30 is rock solid for me too. :smiley:

It’s too bad though that none of the fixed issues applied to me.

Maybe next time. :wink:

Regards :sunglasses:

Fantastic to hear :slight_smile:

Hmmm… I need to do some testing before I join the happy gang. After installing the update yesterday, Cubase would freez 8 out of 10 times when hitting save. I had a good idea going which I wanted to get down so after every restart I started from scratch with a new project/project folder, but using the same project template and doing the exact the same tweaks to Halion5, which include drag MIDI from Flexphrase to track. I need to debug this particular project template and do some testing with/without Halion5 before I’m ready to give this update the thumb up.

Aloha W,

Is the prob happening on both axes? (desk and laptop)


I’ve only updated the laptop so far, which is now my main computer. The desktop, which I’ve forgotten about, only has an earlier version of Cubase installed, but I can of course run the same project on both machines and see If I run into the same problem on the desktop. Good idea! Thanks :wink:

I was compelled to agree with you but 30 seconds after I clicked on the link to this thread, I attempted to increment save a .bak file and had 7.5 crash ¯_(ツ)_/¯

OK - I haven’t touched anything and everything is working fine. No freeze when saving. Must have been a hick-up due to… something.


I’ve been getting random crashes of the video component. It’s happened a few times now and I’m not running video.

I’ve never seen this before. Then when sometimes I quit, I get the old “Waiting for Video Service…” message and I have to abort it.

Any thoughts anyone?

It’s happened a few times now and I’m not running video.

You can just remove the videoengine if you don’t need it. Bit of a hack workaround but better than crashes.
In windows you just remove or rename videoengine dll from components folder…not too sure about Mac I’m afraid.

Thanks, but I do use the video portion from time to time. Cheers.

Yes the flickering is rock solid !

on heavier projects i still get random crashes from time to time but that maybe due to combination of factors

BUT… ever since 7.5.3 cubase now crashes every time i exit a project (or at least every project i’ve worked on since last week)

otherwise, life’s good

Odd. My experience is exactly the opposite! Cubase used to crash EVERY time I exited, then with 7.5.3 that stopped. (Except for the occasional appearance of the video related thing above, it’s been extremely stable.)

Does it happen with a new, post 7.5.3 file? (One that you have started from scratch since installing the update I mean.)

I’m happy with cubase too.

Have a current project that crashes on exit, maybe it’s because it was created on 7.5.2.

I also had crashes when duplicating tracks while playing or when freezing some previously unfreezed tracks.

But it’s pretty random and I already had those in the past.

7.5.30 wasn’t rock solid for me! Stuttering and skipping of audio which I’ve never experienced in all my years with Cubase. No matter how high I set my ASIO buffers, the playback was a mess!! Rolled back to .20 and all is back to normal. Steinberg went 100 steps backwards in my book considering how well my hardware performs using version 5.0 to 7.5.20. This was the very first time a Cubase upgrade rendered my whole studio unusable! I won’t be installing any more patches unless Steinberg recognizes and corrects this issue with a future maintenance pack. Further more, if 8.0 builds on 7.5.30, then I will be stuck and definitely will not be upgrading any further :open_mouth:. More information: I upgraded to a brand new workstation at the beginning of the summer. I installed 7.5 from the Steinberg ISO’s, upgraded from 7.5 to 7.5.10 and then to 7.5.20 without any issues.

I have to go as high as “4096” buffers and still has dropouts

hmm for once i did what i recommend to others and rarely do… held off with the upgrade in the main studio. i’m glad i did.
