UVI Drumreplacer problem with Nuendo 12

Since 6 months im using UVI Drumreplacer ver. 1.2.5 without problems in Nuendo on my 2020 iMac i9, 10 core, 72GB ram, Mac OS Monetery 12.5.1.

Drumreplacer update ver. 1.2.7 crashes Nuendo immediately without a crash report available afterwards. Same version works without problems in Cubase 11.
trashing Nuendo preferences and reinstalling Nuendo makes no difference.
I also contacted UVI support. They are very supportive and are investigating the issue, mailed a ver 1.2.8 update, which didn’t make a difference either. They also told me, that to them I’m the only one with this issue.
So I just wanted to ask, if any of you use UVI Drumreplacer and ran into the same issue with upgrade to 1.2.7?
Thanx, kind regards

hi woflger,

i have had many problems popping up with drumreplacer and NU12 (monterey & M1). i can’t say exactly why and when it happens; seems to get more problematic when the projects get bigger. sometimes, i’m unable to re-open them without experiencing NU quitting (no crash report either), as you describe it. this happened with the previous as well as with the latest drumreplacer-version. so you’re certainly not the only one, and it has been going like that for a while.
haven’t been in contact with the UVI-support yet, will write them when i find a minute.


thank for responding Benoit!
That’s interesting, Drumreplacer version 1.2.5 works perfectly in Nuendo 12.0.51 on both my machines (I also tried with my Mac Book Air M1, Monterey). My problems only started with version 1.2.7.

I use the UVI Workstation. Great sounds. But I cannot use it with separate outputs in Nuendo or Cubase. If I try to do that, when I try to reopen the project it fails. I’ve also spoken with UVI about this and they told me a similar thing - “you’re the only one with this problem”. They updated Workstation and we’ve had multiple updates of Nuendo/Cubase but the problem still exists.
