I am having a problem with multiple dropouts during playback and exporting. The dropouts are never in the same place.
I do not have any VSTi’s installed (all WAV files). I, of course, am using mixing VST’s, but that is it. When looking at my VST Performance, I can see that my average load and real-time peak never get over 25% up the meter. The disk meter gets up to around 25% and that is only on occasion.
Each dropout only lasts for about 1/2 a second. During playback of a 3:30 track it happens on average about 4 times. I am only exporting to MP3. I have tried changing my buffer size and real-time export and neither has helped. This actually has happened for quit a while, even when I was running Cubase Artist 7.0 and 7.5. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
