I had been crash-free on Quit/Exit of Cubase for almost a year. It was a good run, but now I’m back to the usual problem.
I had been enjoying that “Recent Projects” browsers at launch, in the Hub, but now that Cubase is crashing on exit again, it seems to never save this detail correctly.
Question for others experiencing this long-standing Cubase phenomena: is it corrupting your recent projects file list, too?
The crashing on exit is 100% of the time, but the last saved project being saved to the recent list only happens about 95% of the time.
In other words, I’ve mostly lost my recent projects list on startup, but one will survive, once in a while, and will show up in the recent projects list at startup.
The fact that this is possible at all seems significant and might be an important clue to any developers trying to fix this.
In programming speak, it seems to me that this is some kind of asynchronous “race condition” in which resources, drivers or APIs being closed, make their dependencies unhappy.
Anyway, it’s not a huge deal to manually browse and select the most recently saved project, but I’d like to track this issue down.
As for the triggers, I keep a meticulously detailed log of everything I update, even Windows updates, and the offender was either the latest Softube update, or the very new v9r27 Waves update. No other possibility, in my particular case, because nothing else was touched.
This was the one time I didn’t test each update separately (of course), so I don’t know which of the two is to “blame.”
Blame in quotes, because I suspect the offender was only a catalyst / trigger of an underlying issue that Cubase needs to fix, themselves. I’m sure other Cubase installs, on the same platform, with the same “offender” (and at the same version), might not exhibit the issue.
