Cubase Pro 8 very often crashes when I attempt to copy (Alt-drag-and-drop) an insert effect from one track to another in the Mixer.
About 8 times out of 10 it works fine to copy insert effect plugins between tracks, but quite often it will instead cause Cubase to crash (immediate crash without any warnings or error reports). The Cubase 8 process is still alive and visible in the task list after the crash, but it can’t be killed, so a computer restart is required. (I do this copy operation often during my mixing sessions and typically need to restart the system once or twice an hour. Very very frustrating).
I have not noticed any particular plugins that consistently cause these crashes. It happens with various different 3rd party plugins. (Yesterday it happened with both DMG Audio EQuick and Acon Digital Equalize for example. Sometimes copying works, sometimes not).
The only cumbersome workaround I know of is saving the plugin settings for one track then starting a new instance on the second track and loading the preset.
Can I debug it somehow? Some error log that could give me some clues?
