Nuendo 13 - Crashes on Audio Mixdown Export

Hi, I am having repeated (but not every time) crashes when attempting to export audio mixdowns in Nuendo 13. Issue didn’t present in 12.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Export audio mixdown, choose your settings and hit export
  2. Halfway or slightly more than halfway through the export, it gives you the pop-up asking “file already exists, overwrite? Or cancel? Or export with unique filename?”
  3. Selecting any of those options causes Nuendo to hard crash.

Please help. Thank you.

Are you on Mac or Windows, please? Which version?

Could you attach the *.ips/dmp file(s), please?

I have this too, it happens if I click the mouse “on” Nuendo during the bounce, it I don’t touch anything it works fine.

OSX 12.7.1 MAC PRO 2019


Could you attract the *.ips file, please?

I don’t know what that is.


You can find the file(s) here:
Mac: macOS Console utility > Crash Reports (or ~user/Library/Logs/Diagnostic Reports).
Win: %userprofile%/Documents/Steinberg/Crash Dumps

I’ll do it next time it crashes.

You can find a history of the files, so you can attach the files, you already got in the past, if you want to.

Same here. Mac OS Ventura 13.6.2. Nuendo 13.0.10


Same as the others, please attach the *.ips file(s).

Same here, at least similar: N13 crashes on mixdown. Not always, but often.

For now, realtime export seems to work, so at least I can continue.

Bunch of ips attached.

This suppose to be fixed in the 1st maintenance update.

Yes, the crashes on Mixdown are fixed.
Yesterday, during a 2 or 3hr session on VST Connect Pro, I had 2 crashes though, logs sent to Steinberg.
