I recently upgraded to C9, which seems to have gone fairly well. But there are some interesting glitches.
I loaded my “practice project”, which is used for practicing both performance and technology. It was created under Cubase 8, updated in Cubase 8.5, now saved as Cubase 9. It serves as a good test after system changes.
C9 loads, and this error appears concerning the GA 4 ECO content set 2:
This is followed by a search dialog, which I don’t know how to respond to:
Perhaps it’s because I nave only Groove Agent SE, and the content set (which seemed to be part of the C9 upgrade) doesn’t apply to such a lowly level of Groove Agent ownership. I don’t know. Others have posted about similar issues in the Groove Agent forum.
And the issue goes away when I enable a track…
So, if I enable the track that has Bass Station on it (a free plugin from Novation that came with my keyboard) I get this error when starting Cubase:
Novation admits that their automap technology doesn’t yet work with C9. And yet my keyboard controller works for playing notes and pitch/mod wheel. (But not for transport controls. And I doubt quick controls work as well). Perhaps there’s a connection?
What’s really odd is that the groove agent error is gone. Is there still a problem (going unreported) or is the problem gone?
Plugin Manager gets weird
