Sometimes you accidentally do something in Cubase that takes a long time, and then can’t stop it from going on and on with the process. Here are a couple examples that I’m sure many people can relate to:
You accidentally load up the wrong project (a large project, let’s say) and so you need wait a long time for it to load, and it might crash Cubase if there’s another large project already loaded (which is a separate complaint seen over the years with Cubase). We need to simply be able to stop any session from loading up once it’s started. The other DAWs I’ve used enable you to stop loading new projects once you’ve started. This can happen to anyone, from the most seasoned pro to the newest user. Most of my sessions are immense and this makes me want to throw Cubase out the window when it happens!
You copy a section of your project and paste it somewhere else, but you accidentally misalign where the tracks are and Cubase starts loading in all-new instruments and tracks, which can possibly overload and crash the project and/or take a huge amount of time. In composing sessions that regularly have 400+ tracks, for example, this can and does happen. We need to be able to stop this process immediately when it happens.
There are probably other instances of this kind of thing where you can’t stop Cubase once it starts doing something that’s time-intensive. Let’s put an end to this old issue. At this point when exporting a project and you want to stop, you can do it but it’s slow and sometimes takes a while before Cubase responds, which is also a very old issue…but at least you can stop it. Let’s bring this basic functionality to other parts of Cubase.Thank you!
