Very long start of Cubase

Since V11 of Cubase I have a very long start process (especially on the VST3’s scan step) as around 3 or 4 minutes !!!
Do you experiment this ?


I don’t. Try to update all your plug-ins, please.

All plugins up to date.

If Windows,

Try to delete the “Mediabay3.db” file (Make safety copy) in
c:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 11_64\

Start Cubase.

Seems strange but worked for me .


no effect here same issue …

Tick “Deactivate all third-party plug-ins” and press OK to see if it starts faster with only the stock plugins loaded.

SOLVED !!! :smiley:

Actually it was because I had a lot of VST2 AND VST3 version of identical plugins !
I have removed all the vst2 versions and now my vst3 scan run in 10s :star_struck:
