That is great news that it is working for you. It encourages me that maybe I can get this solved. I’m on Windows 11 -23H2. Lynx Aurora (n) Thunderbolt.
It wouldn’t be so bad if I could find a log that told me what happened. I could then fix it. N12 is still running OK on my system. When it has a problem, it’s usually a hang on loading a project or a hang when quitting. But in both those cases, a crash report doesn’t get generated either.
I was hoping to really use N13 on the latest mixes I need to finish, but I just can’t get it to run without a crash. BTW: on the few times I did get into N13, it didn’t crash while working on the project.
I have found instability even with V12 and addressed this by stopping Windows Defender from scanning specific application libraries in relation to the DAW, as well as proactive System Maintenance and Defragmentation.
I already have defender not scanning and sample, vst and steinberg directories. So, in my case that isn’t it. Currently, I got it running again. When I finally got the prompt, I told it to nuke the preferences and I let it completely rescan all the plugins. That takes quite a long time.
I will see how it reats during today’s session.
N13 runs here without a peep. I only say this because I also use Aurora with TB on the same most current Win11 Pro release. I also have N12 on the same system.
Does N13 behave the same way when you start without the N12 preferences ? Sorry, but this all sounds very strange. Log files should be avaialable, Steinberg support should know where it is. Maybe hidden by system default (?)
I try to use the VST3 versions of any plugins that have both.
Update: I was able to use N13 on a few sessions without a crash… well, I did have one bluescreen but I don’t think that was Nuendo related.
For others having troubles with N13 and also have N12, it does appear that all preferences, etc. are copied over. The way I was able to get N13 working reliably was to launcg Nuendo after a crash and tell it to nuke the preferences and skip third party plugins. It then opened. I shut it down and the next time I started, it scanned all the VST plugins. It seemed to hang on VST3 plugin scanning but I left it and 15 minutes later it opened up with everything working. Hope it stays working. Thank you all for the tips.
Back to the same stuff again. If I close a project and open a different one “poof”. No crash logs have EVER been generated (at least where they were for N11 and N12). Doesn’t Nuendo create crash logs anymore? I’ve had countess hangs and “poofs” yet not a sing dmp file that I can find.
This is pretty frustrating.
Also, I can’t find a way to color a folder track anymore.
Above is the dmp file when Nuendo goes “poof”. Have a look at it. From what I can tell, SoundID Reference VST3 Plugin.vst3 is the culprit for at least this crash.
I had to use procdump64.exe to generate the dmp file. Not a single crash of Nuendo 13 has generated a dmp file; and it’s crash countless times.
I’m going to see what Sonarworks has to say as well.
sorry to hear you are experiencing unstable Nuendo. After a quick short at the DMP I believe the unstability might have to do with the SoundID Reference Plug-in. Unfortunately they do not provide regular version number in their DLL so I couldn’t check whether there was a new version. My suggestion would be to update to the latest version of this plug-in first. If there is none, try to not use it or disable it for a while and see whether Nuendo is stable again. Otherwise feel free to send me new DMP in PM.
I too saw in that dmp log that soundID was the cause. I did have the newest version. I uninstalled, tried and older version, but it wouldn’t load my saved presets. So, I uninstalled again, renamed the directory in app data/local and reinstalled. The problem version came out a couple weeks ago. I just coincided with N13.
I opened a support ticket with Sonarworks but I don’t have a lot of hope for a timely solution. They are usually pretty slow in responding and solving bugs.
I have a problem that also seems to be related to the latest version of SoundID Reference, but on N12. Nuendo often crashes at startup since this new installation. I’ll try to find a crash log and see if I can’t go back to the later version.
