I’ve been encountering a few cubase projects corruptions over the past few months.
It’s not on every projects… but I would say it concerns 5-6 % of them.
A few informations about the projects :
- Not too much tracks ( I would say between 20-40 tracks ) , a few kontakt, omnisphere VSTi, some audio tracks.
How it’s corrupted :
- Some projects simply dont open
-Some projects open but with half of the midi tracks missing… and with an error message : “parts of the projects could not be opened” ( I’m translating that from the french error message so it might be not accurate )
How I use my projects / save :
- Some of these projects have been opened on 2 different mac computers, but with the same Cubase 7 version, and the same VST instruments, and saved to a dropbox folder.
- Of course, the projects are never opened on the 2 computers at the same time , to avoid sync problems with the dropbox…
I must say these project corruption are frightening !
Lately , I had a big music project and I had to rely on Logic Pro which I never had a single corruption problem with…
I couldnt trust Cubase as my project needed 80-100 tracks for 30-40 minutes of music in a single session.
Imagine if my cubase project got corrupted at some point ? I woud have lost everything or half of the midi tracks!
IMO, steinberg should look into these corruptions problems , it’s a very serious issue…
