On stopping playback, Cubase/Windows "thinks"

When I stop playback, Cubase often, not always, stops to “think” (indicated by the Windows blue circle icon) for about 8 to 10 seconds, during which time all functions are frozen. It looks like an autosave is happening but this isn’t since it occurs precisely when playback is stopped. It is always a painful interruption of workflow.

If anyone else has this issue or has found the source of the problem, kindly confirm.

I will not engage “defending” responses indicating this is normal/desirable Cubase function or blaming the customer.

I’m quite shure that it is autosave, which is “disabled” while playback and recording, and then will kick in when you stop.


Thank you Dirx, I will look into that.
