HP EliteBook 8540w, i7, 8GB RAM, Nvidia Quadro 1800M,
Windows 7 Proffesional 64bit, Aero theme, transparency off
RME FireFace UFX
Cubase 8, 32bit, Always on top disabled
Yamaha mixer 01V96VCM, total recall within Cubase via Studio Manager
(all drivers and versions: the latest)
Yamaha Studio Manager has remained 32bit and thus Cubase 64bit versions could not have been used with it.
However Cubase 32bit versions have been an acceptable alternative until the Cubase 8.
Unfortunately, it seems that the new way of handling windows (Aero!?) is clashing with SM windows.
Here is one of scenarios for (which I would like to send you a CrashDump, please advise how):
- new project from e.g. Acoustic Guitar + Vocal template
- go to Devices->Studio Manager->
a blank SM window appears and is focused, but can focus out only by tapping on Windows logo-key…
No menus shown but some of options from menus available by placing the mouse over there,
- to escape I go to Window, drop-down to Windows-> Studio Manager-> Minimize
- Save project
- Windows-> Studio Manager-> Activate --> small SM Window appears but again with blanked menus
- hovering over I go to: setup-> 01V96 -> add, apply, OK
- 01V96 Windows appears but cannot focus to anything…,
thus try and close the initial SM window - message appears:
Cubase 8 has stopped working… windows will close the program …etc.
- have to close the program
Presently I am trying to find a workaround by making a template in 7.5 which could be prepared for opening in 8.
However, even if I succeeded, that might help working with new projects, but compatibility with old ones would remain
Thus, Steinberg, pls look into this new and serious incompatibility between Cubase and Yamaha’s Studio Manager for
the sake of all Yamaha mixers and synths users who appreciated a possibility of total recall within Cubase projects.
At the same time maybe you have a means of awakening Yamaha’s program team for an update of SM and a 64bit version?
At the same time, yes congratulations on improvements in V8 and I do hope those will become available even to us Yamaha hardware lovers…
