and how come some random dude can do a better job (jbridge) than cubase's own vst bridge tech?
Are you on Windows? If so, I've experienced similar behavior.
If you quit Cubase and it fails to start back up, open the task manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and go to the processes tab. Scroll through the processes until you see Cubase.exe. Click on it and hit End Process. No need to reboot.
I hope they fixed this in 7 as well. Other than that, I haven't had really any major
problems with Cubase, but I have only been using it for sequencing external gear and I just started using it in August. (made the break from hardware sequencer)
They also need to fix the tool popup bar that allows you to select the draw, cut, range, etc. tools. I don't know how many times I try to select the cut tool and it never switches from the pointer. I've been using one of those CMC-QC devices as alternative for selecting tools. The QC allows you to map different functions to buttons on the controller, so I just mapped two buttons that cycles forward/backward between each tool.
