Cubase 13.0.30

### What’s new?

March 20, 2024 — The Cubase 13.0.30 maintenance update is now available. The update introduces many fixes and improvements in several areas of the application. Instantly noticeable are the improvements to the user interface. We have carefully analyzed the user feedback after the release and made several refinements, mostly in the MixConsole and the Project window. Another major improvement is the change to the project file format which now allows file sizes of more than 2GB.

### User interface improvements

13.0.30 introduces further user interface refinements that improve readability and the overall look and feel in several areas.

Most of the refinements can be found in the MixConsole and in the track list of the Project window. You will notice that we have reduced the brightness of the white font, icons, and other elements to lower the contrast on dark backgrounds. We have refined the visual appearance of several elements to streamline the user interface and improve the usability when highlighting selected tracks or channels. The inversion of text and icon colors is now more consistent.

There is also a new option “Track Name Font Weight” in the Event Display > Tracks page of the Preferences dialog that allows you to select between “bold” and “regular” font weight for the track name in the track list of the Project window. We have kept “bold” as the default for now, but please give the “regular” setting a try and let us know what you think.

### Changes to the project file format

The original specifications of the Cubase and Nuendo project file format (*.cpr and *.npr) were not conceived for project files larger than 2 GB. As a result of technical progress, such as ARA support, and of an increased complexity of VST plug-ins, more and more data was stored in the project files by the plug-ins, causing an increase of the file size. Unfortunately, project files that exceeded the size of 2 GB may have gotten corrupted when saved. In practice, the issue occurred just rarely.

With Cubase 13.0.30 we introduce a change to the project file format to support much larger file sizes. Cubase will now detect automatically whether to use the previous (32-bit) format or the new (64-bit) project file format. When the project file size requires the 64-bit format to be used, you will be informed via a dialogue.

64-bit project files will be only be compatible with Cubase 13.0.30 or higher. It will not be possible to open 64-bit projects in earlier versions (i.e. 13.0.20) or generations (i.e. Cubase 12). Once a project file is saved in 64-bit format it cannot be converted back to 32-bit.
