Same issue. I was creating a big hybrid orchestral template. 64 MIDI tracks(my limit with Elements) routed to 6 rack instruments with somewhere around 50 outputs from the racks. Then 10 instrument tracks with Komplete Kontrol that I hadn’t loaded anything into yet. I loaded a 7th rack using Komplete Kontrol so I could load Play 6 inside it and use the light guide, loaded a custom multi so I could switch one of the Play racks over the KK, then crash to desktop. Attempting to reload the project in any fashion causes a crash while loading. Renaming my Hollywood Brass folder so those don’t load allows it to load, “disabling” HW Strings or Percussion doesn’t alleviate this issue, same for Symphony Series Percussion(Kontakt instrument). Loading a previous version of this project that was prior to adding HW Perc/SS Perc and the KK instances also loads just fine. To me it sounds like both Cubase and HW Brass are to blame. HW Brass seems the be the main cause of the crash, but only when Cubase is loaded with a bunch of other plugins.
Not sure if system specs show in crash dumps, but I’ve got an i7 6700K that’s typically overclocked to 4.7GHz on all cores. I’ve tried lowering the OC to 4.5 and running it at stock clocks as well, no change. 32GB of DDR4 at 2666MHz with XMP enabled, also tried disabling XMP and running them stock, no dice. All of my libraries are loaded on SSDs with the exception of Hollywood Strings(that sucker is 320GB on its own).
I have over a dozen crash dumps related to this issue if more are requested.
