No EQ-curves in Channel Settings and MixConsole

When opening a 7.5.30 project in Cubase 8 Pro I don’t see the EQ-curves in the Channel Settings or MixConsole:

The same project in 7.5.30 has them:

I used the updater, not the full installer to install version 8.

Hello,

I cannot reproduce this on the Mac, have you tried starting Cubase in safe mode?

Just tried it, “disable program preferences”. No difference, still no EQ-curves.

I am trying to find a temporary fix for this as I still have no EQ curves as per this initial report.

Are there any diagnostics that can be collected to help work out what is going on with this issue. Unfortunately I am not sure what the original trigger for the fault was in my case.

I use a range of 3rd party instruments, and Novation Zero SL MkII running Automap 4.4

Any clues for a temporary fix to get my EQ curves back ??

Best Regards,
Scott.

Have you try to keep unwrapped the “Cubase Plug-ins Set”?

Do you mean unwrapped by the novation automap suite ? Or do you mean some other sort of wrapping ?

Scott

Yes, uncheck the flag for that “Cubase Plug-Ins Set” from the plugins list of the Automap Preferences window.

Ok understood - have now tried unchecking the Cubase Plug-Ins set in the Automap preferences - rebooted and unfortunately no change - still no EQ curves whatsoever. Really weird…

Scott

Ouch! Hope you can receive the right solution. Very, very weird.

Just to maybe remove Novation Automap completely from the picture (at least as part of a solution once the issue occurs) - I removed Automap completely from my system, deleted the Automap wrapped plugins and removed all Automap items from the device configuration table.

After all that - still no eq curves…

I have also tried swapping audio devices ( or at least drivers) from Asio4All to Creative native ASIO drivers hoping to kick the curves back into life somehow (I am grasping at straws somewhat here).

The next step will be a removal and reinstall of Cubase 8 - but I cant help feeling there is a clue to the root cause of this issue somewhere on my system. Based on other posts in the forum - it is not a common issue, but I am by no means the only one with the issue…

Hello,

Have you tried downloading and installing the latest drivers of your graphics card?

Best regards,
GN

Yes - But I will check again today if there are any more updates to apply.

Have also verified chipset and BIOS levels for completeness.

I should add that using the stand alone Studio EQ plugin and Curves EQ plugin both work fine - just not the integrated EQ in the mixer and channel views… :confused:

Scott.

Ok - to add to the list of things attempted to fix this issue - I have removed Cubase 8 via the windows Control Panel, rebooted and then reinstalled. Still no EQ curves in Channel Settings and Mix Console.

Have temporarily reverted to disabling Mix Console EQ and using the Studio Eq plugin instead. A bit of a painful process…

There is obviously some residual data somewhere - .xml settings files or maybe the registry that is causing the new Cubase 8 Mix Console engine to have a problem - but I am unable to locate it at this point…VERY Frustrating…

Hi All -

I am now tearing my hair out a little on this one - I have removed and reinstalled Cubase 8 Pro twice now, checked and updated drivers, trashed preferences back to factory settings, removed Novation Automap - and I am STILL unable to get the EQ curves to show in either the Mixer view or the Channel Settings view.

Has anyone out there who has experienced this issue (and I suspect there are a few) successfully recovered back to normal Mixer and Channel View EQ curve performance ??

Just re-iterating - if I use the Studio EQ plugin it performs fine, likewise with the Voxengo Curves plugin…

For completeness I am running :
Intel Core i7-4820K @ 3.7GHz
24 GB of RAM
Windows 8.1 Pro 64 Bit
Samsung SSD 840 EVO 230GB (System software and programs)
1.4TB Seagate (sound libraries)
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 Graphics Card (Running Driver Version 340.52) - driving 2 x 1920 x 1080 displays
Cubase 8.0 (Upgrade from Cubase 7.5)
Creative Audigy Rx soundcard

I have an other problem, maybe related to this one.

I can’t change the settings of the “Pre” controls. Clicking, double-clicking, mouse-wheel… Nothing works. Neither in MixConsole or Channel Settings.

Strange enough, on my laptop with Windows 7 64bit, everything works fine. I even see the EQ-curves! Could it be the combination with Windows 8.1?

Another difference between my laptop (eq-curves) and music-pc (no eq-curves) is that the music-pc has a Mattrox dual-head graphics card running OpenGL 1.x. The laptop runs OpenGL 2.x

Hello,

That is the issue, your graphics card should support at least OpenGL 2.
Open GL1 is not enough.
