This article provides information about issues currently present in Cubase 7. Please note that the same issues apply to Cubase Artist 7.
Resize and persisting issues
In some cases MixConsole does not restore its expected setup and proportions of elements within its different zones.
In some cases, areas of MixConsole are not redrawn correctly. As a workaround please scale the faders (using G/H) or close and re-open the MixConsole window.
Focus Navigation / Key Commands
Due to a new focus and navigation concept in MixConsole, certain key commands may have no effect (e.g., Solo/Mute). Please note that either the Project window or the Fader section in the Mixer has focus and responds to key commands, but, e.g., not the Visibility/Zones section or the Channel Racks section.
Plug-ins using iLok v1 keys
Plug-ins using iLok v1 keys are not fully compatible with Cubase 7. Please update to iLok keys to v2.
Plug-ins from Audio Damage
There are reports of malfunctions when using plug-ins from Audio Damage. These will be investigated and if possible resolved in an upcoming maintenance update.
Old VST plug-ins
Outdated VST plug-ins may render the application unresponsive. Please use only VST plug-ins which were built with VST SDK 2.4 or higher.
Hardware: switching the sample rate
Under OS X 10.8 it is not possible to switch the sample rate. This issue occurs with all audio hardware interfaces, including the Steinberg CI, MR and UR series.
Please note that the overall memory footprint of C7 has been slightly increased. In 32-bit mode, projects which work seamlessly in Cubase 6.5 may now fail in Cubase 7 due to low memory conditions. Please use the Cubase 64-bit version instead.
On OS X systems the printout from scores show unwanted horizontal and vertical lines. There is currently no workaround but Steinberg is working on a solution.
Please note that if tracks are following the Chord Track in voicing mode the pitches of notes cannot be changed manually. Therefore if you change the pitch of a note in the Key Editor, it will immediately snap back to its position according to the voicing. In the VariAudio editor, you can move the pitches on your own but such changes are reverted when other edits are applied.
The first time the Steinberg Hub appears it can take up to 20 seconds until the News list is populated with entries.
Track Pictures can be displayed in the Track List of the Project window by right-clicking and selecting "Show Track Pictures". Please note that this is a global setting.
