Or maybe not - I have no idea.
The issue appears to possibly have something to do with Cubase writing to the defaults.xml file when shutting down. Here is a vid:
Cubase hung for a while, but I saw no need to u/l the entire vid. It’s only the last minute of the hang. Notice the .xml file being written at :53 - I of course have no idea what took so long, but I am thinking that it is possible that that might have something to do with the issue. This may not be new info; you peeps in Hamburg might already know this, but wanted to make you aware just in case.
I filled out a tech form, and requested that the info be fwd along to whoever should get it, so this may be redundant.
Kindly have a look at the vid; although it doesn’t really say all that much, maybe it will shed some light on the issue if you guys dont already have a handle on it.
