Hi, everybody, any news progress about Steinberg Cubase Nuendo on AMD OSX ?

I Tried to get cubase 10.5 up and running yesterday on my 5900x using big sur and I failed miserably....lol....it try’s to open crashes and just shuts straight off. I’ve tried running with no plugins and got the same result but the same plugins work in logic and Ableton so it ain’t that.
Ive scoured the net looking for a fix but the only one listed doesnt work so I just gave up....lol
Interestingly I have read people saying they use it and wavelab as there daily driver but when I try and delve into how they got it working I don’t get a response so unfortunately I smell horse poo there....😂😂😂
If anybody else reads this and has got Cubase, Wavelab or Nuendo working and cares to tell us how it was done with proof then please do enlighten me.

Thank you for your answer. At the begining Wavelab works wrell and 2 days after, nothing... even Ableton doesn't works for me. I hope somthing is coming to fix that issue. I am on Catalina. This is the crash issue. Thank you all.

@AMDPUSH Ableton works totally fine for me over here and performs well but how did you get wavelab to even open up?
I can’t get it to boot and get the same result as with cubase.


@Shaneee Do you have any insight on getting steinberg crap working with Ryzen by any chance good buddy?

I don't use a Ryzen hackintosh anymore but if memory serves Cubase 10 does work if you remove the SurroundPanner VST3 from the Cubase.app bundle. Cubase 10.5 and later don't work because Steinberg changed the DRM after Cubase 10 got cracked and the changes for whatever reason cause it to crash on launch on Ryzen. The same is true with newer versions of WaveLab, Dorico etc.

Spectralayers is unaffected.

The crash log posted by AMDPUSH (citing a segfault in Baios) is indeed caused by the new and "improved" DRM protection.

Unfortunately it isn't possible to fix this issue without cracking the Cubase 10.5 / 11 DRM, which realistically I don't think will happen any time soon.

Your options are either to switch to a KVM hackintosh, switch to Windows or use another DAW.

I am already in Dual Boot with Windows.
That's really stupid form Steinberg, because Protools works, and if somebody have bought a legal license he deserves to be able to use it even if its at his own risk.

This a cracked version of cubase, and it doesn't work.
What is DRM protection ?
