Cubase Long Time for MIDI Export

Hello good people!

A friend is having trouble exporting MIDI from Cubase sessions. For example, a 12 track session lasting 3 minutes is taking 10 minutes to export MIDI file, on a Mac Pro 2019 Big Sur 11.6 Cubase 11.0.41.

Usual export settings (tracks solo’d and export with locators checked), and in previous rig with Yosemite wasn’t happening, still Cubase 11.

Any leads would be much appreciated, thanks!

384GB of RAM? :astonished:

Could you try in the Cubase Safe Start Mode [Disable preferences], please?

Hi Martin, thanks for answering.

Yes, haha, this is a friend who happens to be a busy and great composer :slight_smile:

For the record, here is the solution:
She had “export inserts” checked. After unchecking it was lightning fast.
Only check: “Export Markers” & “Export Locator Range” and you’ll be fine.

Thanks everyone!
