I just popped onto the site to see if this problem has come up for anyone. I had a rather big headache trying to figure out what the problem is today.
I’m working on a remix, and the guys I’m doing the remix for decided to send some new material. They both use Logic, and one of the files was a bounced out MIDI file for me to import into Cubase. The file imported fine, but my whole system locked up as soon as I tried to save anything.
Ok, so we figured there might be some problems between programs, even though just simple MIDI data shouldn’t cause issues like this. So, one of the guys tried importing to an older version of Cubase, and sending it to me. Same thing! Finally, after many attempts, we got it to work. He chose ‘delete controllers’ in the ‘functions’ menu, and sent an exported file to me. It saved with no issues. His old version of Cubase had no problems importing the original file, and saving it as a cubase project, so this looks like a Cubase 6 issue as far as we can tell. Somehow, there was extra data added, that cubase 6 doesn’t know how to handle? I can’t think of another explaination. Seems like this problem shouldn’t exist.
