I’ve found some issues related to the Cubase & plugins scaling.
A lot of my collection is affected.
1080p display resolution
Windows scaling set to any value other than 100%. I’ve reproduced the issue with 125, 150 and 175% scaling
Cubase has HiDPI option activated and scaling is set to “-25%”
VST3 versions for all the plugins
When Windows scaling is set to 100% and Cubase scaling set to System’s - mentioned plugins function correctly. So the issue is there only if Windows scale and Cubase scale are different.
Issues, divided by categories (there are 5 issue types):
Shrinked content, temporary fixable with plugin’s internal scaling setting. Changing internal scale fixes cropping until the next time the window is opened:
TDR Limiter №6
Rule Tec Heritage Pro
Shrinked content, but no way to fix it:
Lindell Series 80
Luftikus by lkjb
Sonnox Oxford Inflator
Plugin opens smaller, then enlarges. Everytime the window opens, the final size stays the same:
AudioThing Type A
Denise Bass XL
Window jumps in size and ALSO increases in size every time it opens:
Devious Machines Duck
Content size jumps, but stays the same. The window enlarges in size with an empty background every time it opens:
RX950 Classic by Inphonik
Not all plugins are affected though. Plugins that are working okay are from FabFilter, tbProAudio, SoundToys (VST2), Black Rooster Audio (VST2), Native Instruments, IK Multimedia, brainworx, kHs, sound theory, Arturia, Softube, Melda, Baby Audio, Antares, Audified.
I really hope that scaling issues will get finally sorted out, because since Cubase 10.5, I’ve stumbled upon a lot of those.
Considering that Steinberg are the developers and owners of the VST specification and independent Cubase scaling option is there for multiple major versions, it seems really wierd to have so much of those issues with so many plugin vendors.
Let me know if there’s any info I could provide to ease up fixing the issue.
