Nuendo 13: Error: "Direct Offline Processing" unstable

Select several Events, choose “Direct Offline Processing”, insert a Plug-in and “Apply”:
50% of the times the first Event is corrupt.
“Undo” and “Apply” again: Works (until next time).
Worked fine in pre 13 versions.

Apple Ventura 13.6 (22G120)

Same here. Even worse when using dxRevive plugin and reopening “DOP” window =insta crash

Have had a few DOP related crashes myself with N13 - and only with a kirchhoff eq on it. Never ever crashed in N12.

Wow! :dizzy_face: I’m currently using this tool for one of my projects. However, I didn’t want to continue the project until next week. I’ll have to test it immediately.

What version of the plugin are you using? The release notes for the current version say:

Cubase/Nuendo DOP bugfixes: Addressed and resolved issues related to compatibility with Cubase and Nuendo’s Direct Offline Processing.

I hope that Accentize is aware of the problem.

I’m using latest version of dxrevive pro 1.0.9.
In N12 everything works flawlessy, but in N13…there are problems.


I used dxRevive Pro 1.0.9 yesterday a few times in dop and had no issues - but some other plugins are giving me issues that weren’t in N12.

Who knows

Are you on Mac or Win?

Windows 11. But yeah I’m getting DOP crashes left and right now that I never had in N12. I think one crash a minute ago may have had dxRevive in dop. I think its just having trouble with DOP in general. On this 30min docu I’m working on, its crashed maybe 8 times since yesterday, all DOP related.

You would think that Steinberg would put a little more love into DOP. It’s such a great feature and a real selling point. At the very least, if the DOP worked reliably, it would be a selling point.

I’m experiencing the same issue with DxRevive and other plugins. I encounter a white window displaying an error message. The window duplicates itself three times per second until I press the spacebar. Additionally, most of the time when I apply a plugin during offline processing, the waveform from the event disappears, and I get no sound. I have to turn the plugin on and off to make it work.

Yep, I got the duplicating error message window as well. Had to force quit (“end task”) Nuendo to get it to stop.

Really hope the maintenance update fixes this - this is bad considering how necessary DOP is.


Open DOP and insert dxRevive and do «Apply»: First Event is corrupted. No error message.
Undo «Apply» and «Apply» again: Everything is ok. Undo, «Apply», Undo «Apply» (xx times): Everything is OK.

Close DOP.

Repeat #1: Same happens.

CONCLUSION: The problem appears the first time only after «Apply» is done after opening DOP. No difference if the track is mono or stereo.

OTHER PLUGINS: Some crashes Nuendo, other works fine.

Does anyone from Steinberg read the entries here?

I can confirm the DxRevive issue. Wouldn’t this be something Accentize has to fix, since other plugins don’t have this issue?

With GOYO and Clear, the event seems to be shifting.

Hi, yes we do. There will be already some fixes in the upcoming maintenance release for DOP. And further i try to reproduce and investigate the issues reported here.
Cheers, Dirk


@DSabath I hate to ask for release dates, but I’m getting slammed with these DOP crashes - could you let us know if the maintenance update is pretty close, or will it be a while until it’s released?

are all your DOP crashes with dxRevive or are other plugins affected as well? Could you provide me crashlogs?

No not all dxRevive related - I don’t think. I’m pretty sure the first crash I had was without dxRevive even in the project. Some of the errors windows that pop up will call out specific VST3’s like Kirchhoff or RX9 De-Hum, etc, others will just say some file in the system32 folder. I wish I would have taken screenshots -

but yes, I have sent you a PM with a .zip containing .dmp files @DSabath

thank you!
