    On two separate computers I'm having trouble with Cubase not shutting down all the way. Is anyone else having this issue?

    Not having shut down issues, but ever since I stalled 9.5, I keep getting the "Memory is Critically Low" and then it shuts down the computer.

    I remember this happening years ago, but haven't had it since.

    I am not low on RAM at all.

    anyone experiencing this?

    Yes I'm getting occasional delays in shutting down as well. Not every time, but quite a bit. It usually finishes but takes awhile. Windows 10 here...

    I'm still running OSX Sierra and it's giving me trouble both starting up and shutting down.

    The same here, it takes a lot of time to quit, sometimes it's really a pain... Windows 10 and 9.5...
    And I have this problem since cubase 8..(or it may be since I Made a large template...)
    I can see in the task manager that the memory is blocked for cubase... Maybe e will get a fix one day :( :(

    Nuendo has been fine for me on W10 Pro but I know someone who's always had Nuendo crash on closing with W10 after an update. Only difference between our systems is he's not on Pro.

    I always have to force quit on OSX if Cubase has been open for awhile. It’s been like this since version 8.5 and I’m on 9.5.

    Still using 7.5 and the same issue. I only get it on 6.5.5 occasionally. What I do now which seems to help, is not to close Cubase from the program (The red cross in the window, or the menu), but to open Task Manager and do it from there. Seems to give me a better chance of avoiding the AppHang Error that is a built in feature of Cubase :rolleyes:

    I've had Cubase shutdown issues from day one. All and any versions I ever used.

    is this something steinberg is aware of ? I never opened a ticket for that.. thinking it's some third party plug-in related and not exactly steinberg's fault... but does other DAWS have this issue ???

    I always had shutdown problems, getting worse since v8.
    However this thread is mostly useless. Just google the issue (this and many other never fixed) and you'll find old entries about. They don't care.

    Fixing issues don't justify getting our money every half a version but "flashing features" only so they won't fix anything functional unless is affecting 100% of the users it seems. Threads like this just will get buried in time as so many other, including those in their own forum.

    Not only well known issues are not fixed, also requested improvements like a less jurassic expression map editor are systematically ignored as these won't sound bombastic enough as per taking your money.
    Not to mention the absolutely surrealistic way the GUI beehives, I love specially the random control key related fun (often beehives as pressed when is not) but my all favorite is the included game "find the active window" (a variant of "Find Willy" game) where as soon as you minimize Cubase to check your mail or whatever, when you're back you can find all sort of windows from other programs running inside Cubase and no matter what you touch it is never the active one :) You can get that even when just starting Cubase before loading any project and I'd say is affecting the behavior of other running programs too so that's granted fun :) All of these, in any version, on different computers, different OS and different graphic cards.
    Just to add other hidden gems like when sometimes your CC data gets flattened down with no chance to undo, render in place feature crashes more than not, of course the shutting down issues, etc.
    The sum all those small things makes me feel that I'm not using a professional tool at all, what can I say.

    I'm periodically checking for alternatives lo leave the Steinberg train and their customer careless. Luckily, more and more third part guys and developers are implementing "expression maps" (actually even better ways to assign articulations) and getting close (and even new interesting approaches arising) to Cubase MIDI editing implementation, that's the main reasons for me to stick on Steinberg currently.
    I'm out as soon as I'll find a stable DAW (stability is a must to me), comfortable to use and with nice MIDI editing/articulations manager.

    Yes I'm also sometimes really fed up with those problems and still hoping next release will fix them... it's just so a pain to loose time to learn a new software for that :( :(

    Carles, are you willing to elaborate on that with a couple of examples? I'm curious what you consider promising in the areas of articulation management and MIDI editing.

    I just bought a brand new Windows 10 computer running Cubase 9.5. When I shut down Cubase the top menu bar sticks around. It has the "X" in the top right corner so I click on that. It does go away after a bit. I've used Cubase since version 4 and have only recently experienced this issue. Hope they fix it.

    So odd....I used to have the problem until Cubase 9.0 came out and it went away. I'm running 9.5 now and no issue (knocking on wood!) and I run on Windows 7 Professional. FWIW...

    Aaah, Cubase.

    Won’t quit when you want it to, yet spontaneously quits when you’re at a vital point in your project.
