The latest update (8.0.10) now halts when saving the project, showing a busy-cursor for some seconds - sometimes many seconds. It happens while auto-saving too.
This problem did not happen in earlier Cubase versions, and it is not related to my hardware. I have tried running the machine with and without overclocking and it changes nothing. It happens in Cubase only and not in any other programs. And it is not associated with the Lynx ASIO problem.
If playing while saving it plays fine, but when the music is stopped and an auto-save event is happening, it will halt all Cubase GUI inputs for some seconds. And if having/making many backups during auto-save, this can last for up to 5-10 seconds.
To me this kills the creative process as I do a lot of backups and do them often (every 5 minute).
Hope it can be fixed soon.
