Multiple Crashes After 10.5 Pro upgrade

Hey lads,

Just wondering if this stuff happened to you. I upgraded yesterday (luckily I still have the 10 app).
It seems to be crashing when opening 3rd party plugins, I specifically remember it happening on Slate and Fabfilter, maybe with others too, but I was too pissed off already to notice.

OS: MacOSX High Sierra

The 10 version runs like butter and I’ve had only a few small issues, but this one gave me 4-5 in a few hours.

Anyone here had these issues? :question:

Same here. It’s basically unusable at the moment. Crashes every time I’m trying to open Fabfilter or izotope Plugins on a channel in a project I started working on in 10.0.4. - sigh

Also experiencing crashes after upgrading from 10 pro to 10.5 on Mojave

So a number of times, when launching 10.5, it just crashed immediately.

Then what’s crashing my Cubase is the Reason Studio plugin, worked fine on 9.5 before I upgraded straight to 10.5, but somehow, it’s seeing it as a problem even if I load it on 9.5 now, even after I reinstalled Reason and updated it.

Not had the issue with other plugins, just Reason for now.

I’m having the same problem doesn’t like fab filter plugins if i have the Q3 EQ plugin on a track and go to add MB plugin from fab filter i get the beach ball of death .have to force quit cubase 10.5

I’ve also noticed that opening 2 plugins at once does result in instant crash! How long do you guys think it will take until they come up with a revision?

Superior Drummer 3 (latest version) makes Cubase 10.5 crash here. I’m on Mac (Mojave).

I’m on WIndows 10
Had a problem with Omnisphere being sent to the blacklist I sorted this by re-activating the correct dll. Now Cubase 10.5 will not start at all. It gets to the plugins and quits.

I used the new ‘shift-ctrl-alt’ and launch and disabled loading of plugins and all is okay…although I now have no plugins lol. It seems Cubase 10.5 has an issue with Omnisphere 2.6. 10.0.5 is still fine and I’m using it for my critical work now.

Cubase 10.0.50 pro and win10 latest version here.

Fabfilter Pro-Q3 crashes/freezes the project each time I try to insert it normally on a mixer channel.
I’ve reported to Fabfilter but please note that pro-Q3 does not crash on Cubase 9.5 and does not crash in Reaper 5.9

Did you guys find any solution to the problems? It still crashes if I have 2 ff-q3s open at the same time. Anyone tried a clean install instead of upgrade? Would it make a difference?

I have the same problem with version 10.5. It crashes when using in conjunction with ik-Multimeda Sample Tank 4 Max.

I have Windows 10 the latest version.

****Same here, Windows 10

Module “Stackhash” error, no idea, what is it …

Same here… Crashes with almost every Third-Party-Plugin. New Preferences, every plugin latest version, drivers latest version, but 10.5 still unusable.
Big issue for seemingly a lot of users.
Steinberg, any idea? Will an update fix this?

I had the same problem with Reason Rack Plugin, but my problem has been solved after I installed the latest version of CodeMeter runtime from WIBU site.

New Info from Steinberg: 10.5 doesn’t support High Sierra on Mac. Anyone experienced same issue on Mojave?

Same problem here. Cubase 10.5 Pro randomly crashes both when working with

  • 3rd-party plugins (Superior Drummer 3, loading a new set),


  • Steinberg plugins (Padshop 2, loading a user sample) and


  • when applying Cubase (i.e. Steinberg) built-in functions (Normalize an audio clip).

It also randomly crashed a large number of times when doing other normal operations that I don’t recall what they were. All crashes were identical hard crashes where the application would completely disappear instantly. Basically, it was so utterly unusable that I couldn’t get any work done at all and had to start working in Cubase 10.0.40 again (which is rock solid on the same system).

In other threads where the OP mentions the use of a specific plugin or vendor (Superior Drummer, MacDSP, etc … ) the standard answer seems to be to point to the 3rd-party vendor as if the problem lies there. This is not helpful as it is quite obvious from the diverse crash scenarios described above that the entire Cubase application itself is unstable and can seemingly crash during just about any operation.

Deflecting each individual scenario to the respective 3rd-party vendor mentioned just blurs the picture and delays the time it takes until Steinberg owns this problem and fixes it.

And, yes, I do have the latest version of Superior Drummer 3 and the latest version of Mojave.

10 is rock solid, but 10.5 is giving me major CPU spikes when working in projects and templates created in 10 with minor plugins loaded and no audio present. Performance meters in 10.5 are completely maxed out at all times. My system is well above spec, and 10 handles much larger projects with zero issues.

Continuous crashing here too. Usually with changing presets with 2C Breeze 2.0, but not limited to that.

Does not give a crash report, it is just stuck and needs a force quit.

macOS Sierra 10.12.6
Mac Pro (Late 2013)

The 10.5.5 hot fix was good enough for me to switch back from 10.0 and start using 10.5 again. I haven’t verified that all of my problems mentioned above are gone, but at least it doesn’t crash all the time and I haven’t had any problems working with it now for a couple of days.

:question: Cubase Pro 10.5 Win10

Score edit crashes while using. Almost unusable. 10.0.05 Works perfect.

When opening an old score everything has changed. There is now an enharmonic shift that isn’t present in 10.0.

No curser is present so its hard to follow the sequence.
