Came across something unsual today. I noticed that after working with Cubase 9 and saving my file then quitting ( I did this several times as I was working on something else on my system) that I ended up with multiple Cubase 9.exe’s left running in my Task Manager.
I tried switching and messing with plugins I was using, even went back to a blank project only adding a couple tracks with no plugins and just when I thought I’d figured out what was causing it, it would start up again.
But I finally figured it out. And it is repeatable. Here’s what’s going on…
If I open a project and use “Save as” (overwriting the original file) before quitting, rather than just “Save,” Cubase 9 always closes normally. No matter what plugin or how many tracks are loaded. I even tested it on the big projects that were giving me problems, and if I followed this “Save as” rule, Cubase always closes properly.
So there’s something odd going on with “Save” versus “Save as” at least on my system and wondered if anyone else has seen this.
