I am goin crazy!!! I have a keyobard shortcut on “v” for opening VSTi instruments. This also works for the Cubase sampler tracks, sometimes… but more often it crashes Cubase when doing this on the sampler track. This happens on both my Windows 10 and my Mac OS 12 machines.
Sure. I know I am not the only one with this. The Key Command is “Edit VST Instrument”. If you fire up this key command while on a sampler track it is more likely that Cubase crashes than the actual sampler instruments open in the lower zone. At least for me.
seems like this bug is ignored completely. I am using Waves Cr8 sampler instead of the cubase sampler track as a workaround. But that is really annoying and I don’t want to continue using waves as they are going for subscription only.
yes. I create a sampler track, load a sample, close the lower zone. click “v” which is my key command for “edit instrument” (maybe it is even the default one) and Cubase crashes instantly. I can replicate this both on Windows and on Mac. A friend of mine has the exact same issue. And according to the all the threads in this forum sampler track stability seems to be a major issue for a lot of people.
You can just hide and unhide the sampler track and it will crash if you open the “edit instrument”.
If you give this to developers could you please add a tiny feature request. It would be really awesome to open the sampler track in a floating window instead of the lower zone when you click “edit instrument” or use the key command. Really annoying that it loads up in lower zone and lower zone stays open when you close the sampler track.
I make extensive use of the visibility agents but have not thought about a relation to the crashes yet… I asked my friend if he can test on his side as well and I will try to replicate on my windows machine as well.
Open Empty Project
Create Sampler Track
Hide the Sampler Track
Unhide the Sampler Track
Close the Lower Zone
Open the Sampler Track via Edit Instrument (doesn’t matter if via key command or not)
