Feature Request: Auto-Save only when crashing

current Cubase auto-save is a little annoying because when it auto-saves cubase stops responding for few seconds.
In Logic the project auto-saves only when that application crashes.
Please make this feature in cubase.


Cubase doesn’t expect any crash, so it’s impossible to write a program code for something like “before you crash, auto-save, please”.

The crash is always result of any unexpected circumstances. One of them could be, the project becomes corrupted. It’s not smart to save the corrupted project.

Yea that’s totally understandable, but apple made it work somehow with Logic

Maybe I’ve written gibberish, but here’s what I think.

1. Creating a History Server (independent of Cubase).
Since the history is already “saved” in RAM, I would suggest creating a History Server, where all the actions of the user would be stored, independent of Cubase. This way, after Cubase crashed, the history steps would be written to a file (i’m referring only to the steps that were stored in RAM in the time between the last user save and the crash).

2. Adding a new menu item (in “File/Import/”) to import the “before crash” history file.
After the user has imported the “before crash” history file he/she would just have to go to “Edit/History…” and redo the steps (minus the last one that might cause Cubase to crash again, or not).
