Weird text on mixer?

Cubase 13 Pro. I’ve seen this before with using some plugins like Arcade or UJAM plugins. Same happened in C12 Pro. Is there any fix for this as my mixer channels are not legible? (see screenshot where Audio channels are showing as odd characters on the bottom strip)

Thanks in advance.


Seems this is a known bug with Cubase…

I hope you are well!

As it turns out, this a confirmed issue with Cubase that occurs in multiple plugins. I chased this issue down with Steinberg support a few months ago and was told that there is an open bug ticket with Steinberg, however I was not given any information on when a fix would be deployed.

The current prescribed workaround is to enable the “Disable GPU Acceleration” setting in Cubase Preferences.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions and I’ll be happy to help out.
