Precise control pop up causes crash.

I have just recently installed Wavelab7. I am running on a new Macbook Pro using a usb mouse.
I have installed the latest patch.
I have duplicated the problem.
When I make a fine adjustment on a plug in with the control key and mouse, WaveLab will crash after I couple of adjustments.

Is anyone else having this issue?
What are some possible things I can try to solve it.
Thanks.

What plugins?

Here is what comes up after crash.
I was using different stein berg plug in each time. Plug in I got with Cubase 6.

I was using different stein berg plug in each time. Plug in I got with Cubase 6.

How WaveLab could see these plugins then? Did yo move them yourselves in some public places?
The crash happens in the plugin.

Philippe

No i just installed them with Cuebase then installed Wavlab7. Are you saying Wavelab can’t see the plug ins?

No, I am just wondering if you use plug-ins that are reserved for Cubase. Then that could be a problem.
What plug-in exactly have you trouble with?

Ah, I see. I am new at cubase and computer daws so I did not know there are plug ins that are reserved for Cubase only. I just thought a plug in was a plug in. I will have to pay attention to witch plug ins do this. The plug ins work great if I don’t try to make a fine adjustment. So I have just avoided holding down dontrol key while adjusting and it works great.
I believe it was a multi band compressor, the stereo enhanser and other I will check tonight to see if I can pin point the plug ins I used.

I have a consistent issue while using any Steinberg plug in when I try to use fine control by pressing down the control key the program crashes to desktop after a couple of seconds. I use the multi-band compression that comes with Wavelab 7, I use the stereo imager that comes with Wavelab 7 and or any other Steinberg effect. If I use a plug in from a different manufacturer I don’t have the same issue because the interface is different. When I press Cnt key or what ever key it is for fine control on a Steinberg effect a little slider pops up on the screen and I can make fine adjustments. After I move the slider a couple of times, bang! it crashes. Is anyone else having this problem? Anyone have any ideas of some things I can try? I have reinstalled.I have tried a different mouse.

Thanks, I can reproduce now (Mac only).
I suggest you to use the mouse wheel for precise control, until this issue is fixed.

Wow, thanks. I didn’t even know you could use the mouse wheel in that way!
I am glad I got to uncover an actual bug and not just incompetence on my part.
Thank you for your time.
