Here’s a description of what I’m experiencing. The most bizarre crash I’ve ever seen…
-During playback the entire PC locks up. Mouse, screen, everything. No sound. PC returns from lockup and LoopBe informs me of midi feedback and that it is muting the midi port.
-Cubase 7 works fine. However, Cubase 8 is still in a totally unstable state. I’ll hear playback for a millisecond and then it will freeze again. Cubase GUI and meters appear to be frozen but video is still playing back. I was able to select a different track in Cubase 8. ASIO meter is maxed out in CB8. other than that, cubase 8 wont zoom in or out, completely unresponsive. Now the ASIO meter on CB8 went back to normal. Now it is back to being maxed out. Video stopped now. every few minutes the C8 GUI refreshes itself and then goes back to being frozen again.
Im actually able to move the cubase 8 video window and transport window still but they are both frozen now. shortly after doing that, now they both just disappeared.
sheesh. i may have to go back to Cubase 8.0.0 or earlier.
edit wow after at least 8 minutes of this behavior C8 returned enough for me to access file-save as. The transport functions now work, however the ASIO engine appears to be crashed, as the ASIO load is now 0 and there is no sound output. Now I attempt to change driver to “No Driver” and Cubase locks up for good. End Task. Any chance this is an issue with C8 new audio engine? That would explain why Cubase 7 still works and outputs sound while all of this is happening.
