Cubase / Maschine Crash

Hey there!

I bought a brand new Maschine which has been working perfectly so far, however, I’ve run into a strange issue when using it with Cubase:
After a while, Cubase crashes, when reloading, the program offers me to load the backup file instead of the original project file. After clicking OK it then tells me that the backup-file could not be opened because it was made using an older version, Cubase 1.x (???)

I’m running Cubase Artist 9 on a Macbook Pro (OS Sierra 10.12.4), has anyone experienced similar issues with Maschine or can explain why the program won’t load the backup files?

Thanks in advance!
