Hi Matthias,

Thank you for the update. It easily installed and is working well. ;)

If reference to the Video Decoder for Avid DNxHD...
What exactly does this mean? "The download is available to registered users only".
Registered users of what... Cubase?
If so, I do not see a separate update available in MySteinberg and I am wondering why it wasn't included in the CB 9.5.40 update.

Regards 8-)

Hi,

You have to register the USB eLicenser with the Avid DNxHD license to MySteinberg and a new full-installer for the decoder will show up in the download section in MySteinberg.

At least my problem with izotope continues where something izotope craches when starting cubase. (Music Production Suite) Im not sure how bad this is for cubase though.

awesome update (so far..)
thanks

update: after almost a week now I can say that I experienced no new issues nor any other issues like other users reported in my typical sessions on Windows10, Reason and lots of plugins, recording audio/midi.

Installed it, tried it, then went back to 9.5.30. due to audio not playing back correctly.

Advise to all - make sure you take a backup of your current (working) Cubase environment before installing 9.5.40. I did and am thankful.

What about the problem with maximized window going back to normal window (not maximized) ?

It does that everytime i start a new project or restart C9. Am i the only one with that bug? It's a problem since windows 1803 update and i was hoping it was fixed in this new update, but no luck.

Yes, if you need DNxHD support -- it's $30 -- https://www.steinberg.net/en/shop/buy_p ... 46740.html

If you want to play DNxHD files in Nuendo or Cubase with the new video engine (which replaced the old Quicktime-based engine which had security issues due to Apple abandoning security updates for it), you need this codec license. Applies to Nuendo 8.1.0 or Cubase 9.0.40 or above. Steinberg developed a brand new video engine in-house, and due to licensing issues with Avid, they separately developed an Avid codec, but it requires an extra license fee now. Hope that helps.

And BTW, it is not necessary if you don't need to use DNxHD files.

Installed update from 9.5.3 to 9.5.4. Exported a bunch of wave files as 32-bit (same as previous settings) imported them into Live and they showed up as if they were DC coupled (not sure this is the correct term) and would not play. See screen shot.

Exported the same files from another computer with 9.5.3 installed and it worked fine.


Gonna roll back to 9.5.3. Ugh...

Seems good so far. Opened a few older projects and they ran well. Thanks for fixing the laggy stereo panner! Cheers

To backup, you can use System Restore point, or take a full system backup. It rather depends on what your environment entails. Whatever it does, just backup everything and you're covered.
