I am using Cubase 11 Pro with a Yamaha AG03 USB interface. I upgraded to Windows 10 18 months ago. Everything operated fine until I decided to replace my 10 year old motherboard and processor in June. Since then, I have been unable to play music without momentary drop-outs happening at random. This happens in Youtube, mediaplayer and particularly in Cubase, which makes overdubs impossible. From what I see on various forums, this is not an uncommon problem.
I have tried every suggested fix that I can find online, including driver updates, shorter leads, every USB socket, removing security software and re-installing Win 10, Bios adjustments (particularly C-States) and Windows settings (such as prioritising background programs). I also upgraded my GPU to a Gen 3 card. I am now thinking there is no cure, and it is better to re-install my 10 year old hardware which actually works. Can anyone recommend any combination of motherboard, processor and USB sound interface which works reliably with Win 10 and Cubase 11?
My new mobo is a Gigabyte B460M D3H with an Intel i5-10400F 2.90GHz. Anyone want it?
