Well, the one that the Cubase crash message says that it makes. You know, this old friend…
"A serious problem has occurred. Please try to save your project under another name and then restart Cubase 8.5.exe. If this problem persists please contact Steinberg Technical Support with a description of what you do to create this problem, and the created file C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 8.5\Cubase 8.5.LOG.
Click OK to be informed about further occurrences of serious problems, or ‘Cancel’ to suppress these warnings in case of cascading warnings!"
The thing is that when these crashes occur dumps are created in the Documents/Steinberg/CrashDumps folder, not a log file, even though it says a LOG file in the crash message. I dont know why the crash message references a log file. The last log file was created over a year ago, which I’d sent to a friend for debugging something else.
The problem is that most of my crashes are because of the old "Cubase 8 has stopped working etc… (image attached)
These do not produce crash dumps, I’m guessing because they’re windows error messages. My problems are described in this post:
In short my only workaround to be able to open stuff I’ve worked on the previous day is to load my template or another busy project first, then load the project i need and activate. This doesn’t get around the fact that the sesssions are highly volatile though. There’s nothing that isnt in these sessions that isn’t in the template.
I also have Reaper and Ableton Live installed on this system and am not experiencing any crashing or stability issues with plugins or otherwise in those programs. Its an otherwise stable system, except for Cubase. I have logs from Windows event viewer (attached as xml) pointing to ntdll.dll as the faulting module (windows system file) mostly but I dont know how reliable that is and could probably point to anything in itself. I’ve contacted Tech Support thru Yamaha here last week in Australia but had no feedback as yet. Have a project deadline on Monday and strongly doubt I’ll make it at this rate. I just have little to no confidence in the program, and I’ve been using it for about 15 years.
PS. I’ve also installed Cubase 9 alongside 8.5 (separate install) and the issues are the same there too.
