I was wondering if there were many others out there experiencing the same thing: Cubase 8 works mostly as expected, with its share of manageable bugs and issues. One thing that is constantly wasting precious time is constant crashes when opening a project immediately after closing another one. I can’t reproduce it with 100% accuracy, but it’s become such a regular behavior that I instinctively quit and relaunch Cubase in order to switch projects.
It often happens also when creating new projects from a template immediately after closing another one.
The projects I work with mostly use many tracks but only a couple of plugins: two VEP server instances, with maybe a Play instance in some occasions. Dozens of MIDI tracks, no audio tracks at all. Many projects have a video track, which has a single audio track extracted from it, but that’s mostly it.
I can’t upgrade to 8.0.5 mid-project to see if this has been fixed, but it’s not listed in the “fixed issues” thread.
