I don’t know how the above quoted fix is supposed to apply… but, unfortunately for me:
Cubase still crashes on exit even after the 7.5.30 update!
And also, if I completely close Cubase, and then try to power of the controllers… EuControl will crash also, but if I close my project first, and then power down the controllers, and finally exit Cubase… Cubase still crashes, but EuControl does not!
All this was true even before the 7.5.30 update, so as far as I’m concerned this issue has not been fixed!
I’m using EuControl version 3.1.2
AVID Artist Series Control, Mix, and Transport!
If you are on a mac running mavericks, the problem is not with Cubase.
Join the pro tools forum at avid, then do a search on “app nap” or posts by AlienArtist. He posted a terminal script that turns off the app nap feature for EUControl. Run that and the controller will work flawlessly.
The issue is that App Nap suspends applications that are completely in the background. This totally screws up ArtistControl (others too I imagine). Avid could issue a simple fix in its installer but for some godforsaken reason has not.
Anyway, I ran his terminal script and my problems disappeared. My ArtistControl has never worked so well.
There’s lots of complaints about Avid’s controllers on the Protools forums. I was really shocked.
I’m on Windows and I’m very glad to say the Eucon problem is finally fixed for me.
Al, are you sure that the problem you’re still seeing isn’t one of the other causes of crash on exit, e.g. the Novation Automap issue? Try running Cubase with the EuCon adapter switched off and check it really is that causing it.
