I mentioned this here before a while back when I briefly tried N8 but need to bring it up again because it’s still there and is a very major issue. This has been happening to me since I started with Cubase 8 over three years ago, and on the forums I could see a while ago when I first posted about it that it’s been going for many years on both Mac and Windows.
The issue is that I (and plenty of others) can’t load up very large projects back-to-back without N8.2 crashing. I can load up many small projects back-to-back without issue, by way of comparison. And I can load up different versions of one project (with most of the same approximate plugins and VSTs, etc.), also without issue.
This does not happen in other DAWs I’ve used or tried (Pro Tools, Reaper, Studio One) - on those I can load as many large projects as I want up back-to-back without any problem. This must be an old code problem for Cubendo since it’s been around for so long and exists on both Windows and Mac. I have 64 gigs of RAM, WAY more than enough for any RAM issues here.
I can’t say exactly what the issue is, just that it punches a big hole in my workflow every single day. And again: From what I’ve been reading and also hearing from friends who use Cubase or Nuendo, it’s been an issue for many years on both platforms. I want to stay on Cubendo so I keep hoping it will get remedied. Thanks for listening and fixing!
