Hi, Does anyone know why a project will crash C8 when loaded directly but load successfully if you first open anything else (say a blank template), and then load the offending project and subsequently activate it?
It’s as if by first loading the template you get past what’s causing the project to crash Cubase. Unfortunately there’s no way to tell what’s causing the problem. Worse still, this happens intermittently with no obvious pattern.
I’m not using any MOTU hardware, so that can’t be the problem. However I am using a USB 3 hub for many of my music-specific devices (keyboards, drum pads, midi controller, iLok, etc.). It’s very rare that I experience a problem loading a project, so I don’t think it’s the USB hub either (otherwise I’d have problems more often).
Also, what’s puzzling is why loading a blank template (with no plugins whatsoever) allows me to successfully load the offending project. To me that seems to suggest a problem with Cubase rather than my hardware.
I have this problem with some old projects! I’ve not found a solution yet, and it’s not defo my drivers. It could be plugins but I think it’s more likely a project incompatibility. Tbh I’ve given up investigating but it’d be great to find a good fix
