I’m up against a deadline and can’t open a project I’ve been working on because of some nasty interaction between plug-ins loading their sounds in background threads that causes it to deadlock. I’ve tried to open the file 20 times now and it always deadlocks at the same point. This has always been a problem in Cubase, but usually after about five-or-so attempts of opening a file I can get there in the end, but I’m completely stuck here because I just cannot get this file to open. I’m on OS X 10.8. 4 and am using the latest version of Cubase 8. I know threading issues are an unpredictable beast in their own right, but does anyone have any tricks as to how one might work around this?
