Somebody Help me before I throw my PC through my Obs. Window

A track is selected (lit) in the project window.

Even though the track is selected, it acts as though it is NOT selected.

  • I click on E to open editor, nothing
  • I try copy and paste, nothing

I have to click on another track and then click back on the original track.
Then it works.

How the hell can a guy work this way???
Please someone deliver me from my misery!!

Welcome to Cubase Pro 8, friend. I’m finding it’s capable of just about any bizarre behaviour if you run it long enough. I was getting all sorts of weird GUI behaviour like this; lost ability to copy & paste; lost ability to record; etc.
Seems most issues are plugins it doesn’t like. But that’s hardly an excuse. VST is a standard, and Steinberg doesn’t seem to be sticking to it.

BTW: if you do throw your PC off the balcony, please video it! [emoji12]

I’m loving the new VCA’s but it’s got a lot of funny stuff going on.
I have about 40 plugins running in my mixes, how the hell am I supposed to figure out which one is causing this??

I don’t know. For me it was easy to find the big offender: Slate VCC, 'cos it would freeze the GUI whenever I adjusted parameters in the plugin. Also, on crashes, OS X would show VCC in the log.

Take a look around the forum, there do seem to be some particularly troublesome plugins from various vendors that fry C8

cool, thanks for the tip.
