This week I am dealing with strange issues related to NI Kontakt. One of their instrument libraries “Thrill” is causing Cubase on my M1 Mac to crash as soon as the project loader arrives at that specific channel.
I was able to figure out the culprit by meticulously going through each channel via the “import from project file” function and loading in every single of my 70 instruments one-by-one until cubase crashed again.
There are certainly other VSTs that can cause this. What I would like to see in a future Cubase version would be a way to control wether a VST gets loaded into an instrument channel or not.
The reason for this is, in some cases I simply cannot create a new project from scratch and do the importing thing as I have already set up send channels, group routings and other settings in the mixer and master channel.
I simply would like to be able to continue on a project even when there is a problematic VST.
