Major Render issues in Cubase

Two devastating render issues here:

  1. A comped track plays as it should. Then after rendering, events that were not brought to front (ie. they should be inaudible) become audible. This is clearly a departure from the comped section, which occurs after rendering.

(Edit: #1 referred to Render In Place but it also occurs after using ‘Bounce’ audio, which is really just another render operation).

  1. After render operations Program audio is muted - some tracks, some tracks aren’t. Close and reopen project (more life wasted), and guess what - the audio magically reappears. But double guess what? The frikken mix is NOT RETAINED!!!


These issues evaporate the days. Work is destroyed. The set backs cost time and money and a huge amount of stress.

Please read the issues and understand how pivotal it is for a DAW to not have these kinds of issues.

Wow. Just registered so I can follow this. Seems major.

More examples on issue #2

This sucks man. I’ve lost time and work because of this, especially when I was working in with solo edits and unaware what had even happened after a render.

Issue #1 confirmed as well by @cubic13

What has Steinberg said about this?

Let’s see

No system specs?
It is mandatory information for serious bug reports.

Why do we have to ask it again and again?

Because I always want to assess whether other users experience the same problem first, which is more important before drilling down on specs. Especially for a major issue as - Render is broken.

Mac OS Ventura 13.4, M2 Max

PS. Other users who have confirmed these problems include Windows users.

Thanks, but I’m wondering do all users have this problem?

I don’t have an answer to that. Reported by both Mac and Windows users, and given the nature - that Render can’t be used reliably - it’s pretty major.

Why don’t you test it with your setup?

Tested issue #1 again on a brand new project, this time using ‘bounce audio’. Same result.

Pre-bounce comp:

Post-bounce erroneous result not honouring the comp:

Thanks, I’m on Cubase 12 Pro, following this to see if I should activate the C13 I’ve bought, or just wait.
