So the final work around for missing waveforms until CB 9.5.10 is issued is this...

Hello everyone, a newbie here based in the UK using Cubase Elements 8. I recently experienced this disappearing wavelength image problem too, and it was doing my head in. After finishing recording some vocal tracks and 'playing around' with them, several wavelength images disappeared all of a sudden, showing just a thin line. The audio was there and sounded fine, and the correct image appeared when zooming in or opening up the event. Still it bothered me, so i tried the various suggested fixes like deleting peak files & folders, but to no avail. Then by chance and out of desperation, i tried one more thing and it worked; now all is fixed and my project looks perfect again :D

And the fix was - simply add some gain (an infintessimal amount will do it) to the offending event (Audio menu - Process - Gain) and hey presto, the proper wavelength image perfectly reappears, and it stays there :D You can even undo the add gain if you so wish, and the reconstructed image stays.

Hope this helps some of you reclaim your sanity as it did me ;)

This is not the same issue if you're on Elements 8 as the problem listed here specifically started with the 9.5 version. Glad you got your issue sorted though!

Thanks for that. It worked for me. Here is an addendum: The waveforms disappeared after I had been doing a lot of messing about with my project, including importing old version of the track to get the waveforms (which disappeared with further tweaking of track). This has happened to me before with 9.5 and must be a bug. When I applied this trick to a set of separated events on the track, the gain processing seized. When I bounced all the events to create a single new file, the gain trick worked and the waveforms reappeared. Hopes this saves others half the buggeration this problem caused me.

I am realizing I have this same problem. New to Cubase and love it so far. When I drag projects in, audio waveform appears. When I freshly record something, nothing shows up. Wondering if anything every happened with this.

The issue mentioned here was fixed in 9.5.10 (as described above) If you're already using that version or higher and are still seeing a problem then it's something different that's causing it.

It can be corrupted .peak files.

I upgraded from 9.0 to 9.5.0 a night or two ago, and it has been frustrating.

Issues:
1. Upon launch, I get prompted about missing licenses for two vst instruments that (to my understanding) were supposed to ship with 9.5 - a drum pack as well as some sort of synth pack. I just uninstalled those modules, and a now am getting prompted about some electric piano.
2. Out of nowhere, one of my projects crashes every time I try to use it. Sometimes it's 5 seconds in, and sometimes it's 5 minutes, but it consistently happens.
3. Lastly...and why I am on this thread in particular...the waveforms are no longer showing up on new recordings. The old ones are there. I've read in here that this was installed with 9.5.10, so I just installed 9.5.30, but I am still not seeing the waveforms. How do I force this to get rebuilt?

The waform bug is seriously annoying. I deleted my profile and it "solved" the problem but I lost all my config settings... One week later the issue is back, I'm getting tired of this.
