Cubase 8+ and Focusrite drivers = Crash/Hanging on close

I’ve seen this for a good year now… I have a Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56. 95% of the time, when I close Cubase, it hangs and never closes, or after 5+ minutes, it closes with a crash report.
If I don’t power up my Focusrite and let CB load ASIO4All audio driver, I don’t see any issues on exit.
Anyone else? Any solution?


Make sure, you are using the latest Focusrite driver, please.

Also be sure to use the Windows legacy firewire driver.
EDIT: Actually I see Focusrite now recommend you use the legacy driver for MixControl 2.4 but the default W7 driver for MixControl 3.0.
