A pain that im getting used to!

Finally trying to get stuck into Cubase 7.5 .
Does anyone else get a lot of crashes?
I have only a few vsts and effects and my cpu meter keeps jumping up to max and down again regualarly,and Cubase crashes regularly when working.
And can someone inform me if my system specs are visible on here,if not,how do I add them?

No crashes here so can’t comment on your issue, sorry.
Your system specs aren’t visible, add them as your sig line in user control panel, Profile > Edit Signature

Ok,the project crashes now when I loop a bar and put it on playback.after short period.
I will list the plug ins I have running on the project.
Massive with RP-Disort as insert.prologue with RP-Verb and Big Seq 2 as insert. prologue with panstation as insert.3 instances of cakewalk rapture 64 bit version,1 of the instances with 2C Aether as insert,the other 2 with no inserts.
a group track with Cubase compressor as insert.
Hardly mindblowin,and certainly shuldnt be behaving like this!

Focusrite released new drivers not so long ago. It’s a long shot, but worth a try.

ok thanks.but do u agree something not right?

Do you have the correct audio driver selected? Are you trying to run the buffers too low?

A good start would be to run a dpc check.

yeah correct one selected,and im running at 512

You also haven’t said anything about whether this is a new system?, first time you tried Cubase on it? or whether you have another version working on the same computer without this problem?

not new system. I had Cubase 6.5 with no problems. I upgraded to 7 just b4 Steinberg hiked the update price.
only started using it lately tho.

So what happens if you try to run this project in 6.5?

not possible to do that is it?

Why?

just thought wasn’t possible to open a project in older version that was started in a newer version.

You’re right, it’s not possible.

BTW, someone told me that Cubase is a crap shoot with non-Intel CPU’s. Apparently, there is a much higher incidence of trouble with those processors.

And here’s the official word which confirms there is backwards compatibility up to a point…not updated for 7.5 but surely worth a try after reading the possible things that would stop it working.

I have no choice but to reluctantly agree now.

I wanted so much for 7.5 to work for me, and was really looking forward to the new features.

But for the first time ever - this being my 3rd DAW in 7 years - I have finally had my first bunch of crashes with 7.5.

I too only had a few VSTs open, [Kontakt 5, HALion Sonic 2 - each with just 2-4 instruments, and the same amount of MIDI tracks], and had some crashes and other glitches.

So I read up on some common computer tweaks, [even though I had done them already], did a few different latency check programs, & turned off a bunch of stuff in the start-up options & menus.

Tried 7.5 again - no difference.

Left Kontakt 5 out this time - no difference.

Left both Kontakt 5 & HALion Sonic 2 out this time - no difference.

I then decided for comparison sakes to open 7.0.6.

I loaded in K5 & HS2 - basically the same initial setup, same amount of tracks, same computer, no changes - and it’s super fast with no glitches whatsoever.

So I’m envious of those that I see on here who have a rock-solid 7.5 version.

That’s really great news! :slight_smile:

I’m just not one of them, I guess. :unamused:

btw, for the record, I do have an Intel i7 CPU.

The instrument engine was rewritten for 7.5 so it will take several patches to optimize it, or in this case, beta-test and bugfix.

ok well at least im not alone!

Thanks for the info. That’s some relief I suppose.

Nope - not alone at all. Seems that it’s either incredibly stable - even ‘rock solid’ for many, or not at all for others - a number of others.

Doesn’t seem to be any middle ground. Like it’s either A - or straight to Z.

Luckily for me, going back to 7.0.6 seems to be good though.

Glad the upgrade fee was only $49 and not $150 like a year or 2 ago.

I can handle a $49 loss much easier.
