Range Selection Tool - Spotting the playhead lag

Hi! i have same problem, do you have the solution today?

No solution yet, this is a weird issue and a very annoying one. I hope the devs can address this issue in some upcoming updates.

I often navigate my sessions in the same way, but have not experienced this or can replicate it in my current session. Sounds like a real workflow killer though!

Same here …

Do you click with range selection tool on an event? Not selecting it, just placing the playhead to where you clicked.

I checked and did almost all the reasonable combinations with the preferences on at least 10 different computers, they all have the same issue.

Can you briefly describe your prefs?

It would make more sense for you to create a simple repro that others can try rather than a narrative. Possible, like this? How to report a bug in Cubase

As I tested many times, the preferences don’t change anything. Range selection tool is there for spotting the playhead to where you clicked in edit window.


-Create new empty project

-Create new audio track

-Import wave file on that track (it can be short)

-Click couple of times with Range selection tool on that track to place the playhead to where you clicked. Important: Don’t click on event! (You get a feel of how responsive Nuendo is when spotting the playhead)

-Click once with Range selection tool on that track on event (wave file) to place the playhead to where you clicked. Click some more times on event to place the playhead to where you clicked.
Result:- Every time you click on event to spot the playhead you experience approx 1 second LAG

Tested Nuendo 7, 10 and Nuendo 11 on:
MacBook Pro 2019
OS: Catalina

Several Mac and windows machines with different OS versions.
Every time, same result.

I have same problem in my pc. I hate this issue to! i don’t know why people don’t write about it. i think appear in all systems.

I don’t think this is a machine issue. Because it happened on every machine I tested so far…

This issue also apper in ruler - markers.

and on midi events.

I tried your repro, and I’m unable to reproduce in Nuendo The transport cursor jumps to the spot in about 30ms or less – almost instantaneous.

If you just select an item with the select tool is there lag?

Have you already started Nuendo with factory settings to eliminate a prob with corrupt prefs?

If I select the item with selct tool the is no lag. Or double click with range select tool also no lag. It happens only when spotting the playhead. It ranges around one second lag. Sometimes is faster sometimes slower. I also started it with factory settings.

So you experience the lag? It gets slower with more tracks…

Specially when you need to work fast. With so many operation happening inside your head it is essential that this lag don’t make you repeat or repare the actions you did.

No, I said I do not, 30 milliseconds is a very short period of time. :wink:

Can you do a short screen recording please? I would love to see that…

I am not saying the problem doesn’t exist, only that on my setup it doesn’ happen.

But you didn’t answer my question –

I did. I also deleted and reinstalled…

To get to the point… this lag happened everywhere I did a test. From 33 milliseconds to 2 seconds. This issue should be addressed.

Of course it should be! There’s no doubt.

Please understand that my responses are aimed at figuring out what various conditions need to be met to reproduce this bug. I saw something in the past that was similar, I think it had to do with windows updates and video drivers. this was in Nuendo 10.

Completely understand. It’s a very specific bug, but very important one.

Does this only happen with Video Edit Mode activated?
