I’ve noticed a bug recently that only occurs under very specific circumstances causing Cubase to crash. It’s unclear what is exactly needed to reproduce the crash but here’s what I’m doing:
- Import VST track or group track from another Cubase project
- Move insert plugins and/or EQ settings from imported tracks to existing tracks in project
- Delete imported tracks
→ Result = Cubase error msg (it says to save Cubase project under a new name, or something to that effect, then shortly after Cubase crashes)
It seems to me that the crash occurs whenever the names of the imported tracks are exactly the same as the existing tracks in the project.
→ Example: existing group track called “DRUMS” is in the open project, I import the group track “DRUMS” from another project, I move the inserts and EQ settings to the existing group track, then delete the imported “DRUMS” group track and Cubase crashes. If I rename the group track to something else, I can delete the existing “DRUMS” group track without any issues.
The plugins I was moving over were Steinberg/Native Instruments/Universal Audio plugins, all VST2 and VST3.
Here’s my system specs:
Cubase Pro 11.0.40 | Windows 10 Pro 64-bit | Intel(R) Core™ i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz | 16 GB RAM | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 | ASUS Z87 Sabertooth Motherboard | Antelope Audio Zen Studio | Universal Audio Apollo Solo USB
