Nuendo often crashes on closing projects/Nuendo itself. This bug has been around for ages so I won’t complain about that, I’m sure Steinberg are well aware and will fix it if they found a way.
However something that might make the bug a bit less annoying is if Nuendo would save setting changes upon setting them - for example control room settings, or export settings, or it’s recently used projects - as opposed to when you close Nuendo.
To give a more concrete example of what I mean:
I save my projects like this:
001 - title.npr
002 - title.npr
This is a good way to backtrack progress if you ever want to pull something from an older version. However when I’m working on ‘064 - Arrangement’ move on to ‘065 - arrangement’ making a final adjustment or tweak, save, close Nuendo and it crashes, I shut down my workstation and return the next day, the recent projects list will probably show: project 064. Say I’m a bit hazy because I’ve not had my morning coffee, and I rely on Nuendo and open 064, my tweak will have been undone.
One more example of something that recently happened is: I had to send a batch of files off to the mix engineer, and he needed them timecode stamped. There where multiple sessions on this project and I got the request at the end of the day, so I exported from the session I was working on at the time and made sure broadcast wave info was checked. After closing Nuendo, logging out for the day and returning the next day I spending 2 hours exporting files from other sessions on the same project - fully convinced I turned broadcast wave on (orcourse, silly of me for not double checking ofcourse) - I had to redo these exports because Nuendo crashed during shutdown the last day (I hadn’t even noticed this time) and it had not saved my broadcast wave checkbox check.
Now, finally: I can imagine this is actually a feature for the sake of stability. You wouln’t want Nuendo to save and close on a setting that might have caused the instability in the first place. However, it would be helpful to make this feature a bit more selective. I can imagine this would be very important where certain plugin settings are concerned, however I don’t think the recent projects or export window settings fall into this catagory.
Curious if anyone else has issues with this.
