I’m a long time user of Cubase, since the VST 3.7 days, but this is the first time I’ve ever had a problem that’s really just got me completely miffed. I’ve created a video showing the exact problem as it happened today, this link is below.
The issue is that after I’ve been working in Cubase for a few hours, I start getting these random ASIO spikes. It happens regardless of whether I’m playing back, recording, whatever. It happens in nearly empty projects as well as big projects with lots of tracks and plugs. I’ve only found two consistencies; It only happens after I’ve been working for an extended period of time, at least a couple hours, and once it starts happening, Cubase ALWAYS crashes on exit. To cure it, I just close Cubase, usually having to force it to shut down, I wait a minute or two for things to clear out of memory, and then relaunch. Then I’m good for a few more hours until this craziness starts happening all over again.
Anyone have any ideas? I’m fresh out of ideas on this one and can use some suggestions…
