Not sure what to title this as I’m not sure what has happened. When i click on the ‘E’ (edit channel) button either on the mixer or the channel itself it brings up the edit window but it is huge. It stretches about the length of 4 screens, i cannot resize it and the fx,send & fader are all missing. If i drag it all the way to the right hand side of the box there are no strips there at all!
Yep, I had a similar problem yesterday but mine wasn’t nearly as wide. I only had triple width sends and faders and I could see everything else too so I could still use the editor.
I didn’t find a solution at the time because I was under pressure to get a session finished. I carried on and once I’d finished it I had to save up and leave quickly so I haven’t tried opening the project again since.
I’ve no idea why or how it happened either, it was a routine opening of the project. (I periodically save, close and re-open Cubase projects because I’m paranoid that during a very long session it’ll start saving corrupt files, which has happened a few times in the past).
Thanks Freddie, I’ll see if Apple get back to me, Steinberg clearly can’t be bothered, obviously my £40 upgrade to 7.5 wasn’t enough for them to supply any kind of support!! Time to look into Logic perhaps!
Also note that some channels in the mixer don’t have panners anymore. I had to create new channels and copy over the audio clips. They disappeared some time between when the tracks were disabled and the project saved, and later after numerous saves/loads when I finally enabled them again. Other than that I can’t say.
And in this image you can see I’ve got some tracks which are missing their EQ/Insert control buttons in the project window. #1 track everything’s OK, #2 track they’re missing, #3 indicates that I’ve definitely got the setting turned on… I think this is also due to disabling and re-enabling them later.
Based on the screenshots that you posted, you are on a Mac.
On the Mac, uninstalling won’t do the trick as you are only removing the application but the preferences will remain.
Please have in mind that OSX does not have an uninstaller like Windows.
Please delete the preferences.
Did you delete the folder that says Cubase 7 or just the content inside the folder?
You need to delete the folder.
It is explained on the knowledge base article that I posted above.
You have to close Cubase.
Click on the “Go” Menu on the top of the Mac.
Press down the option key on your keyboard and the library will appear.
Enter the library and go to preferences.
There you will find the Cubase 7 folder.
