So I’ve been using Cubase 8.5.20 rather frequently in OS X 10.11.6.
Seemingly at random times, Cubase will simply disappear. Crash, gone, no error message, no dumps. When I restart, I get a notice about a backup etc… and everything runs fine.
I’m having difficulty figuring out what is wrong. I’ve tried not using any 3rd party VSTs. I’ve traced my steps fairly clearly trying to see if I can find anything happening specifically before the crash. No progress. It happens when recording, making edits, changing presets on a plug-in, and I’ve even had it happen with Cubase totally idle.
In console.app the following log is made: “10/14/16 22:25:18.379 com.apple.xpc.launchd: (com.steinberg.cubase8v5.336672) Service exited due to signal: Segmentation fault: 11”
I have no other segfaults recorded on my system in the last 168 hours except for cubase.
I’m normally fairly good at figuring out how to replicate bugs in software, but this one really has be stumped and it’s exceptionally frustrating.
