Never had this happen, had Nuendo for 10 years. Have 5.5 on an imac running 10.6.8 4GB Memory 1333 MHz DDR3 3.06 GHz Intel Core i3.
I have done plenty of feature stereo mixes and this is the first I’ve had an output problem. Every 10 minutes or so, about ten time, for a few second the mix goes to a white noise blast, ruining the output. Of course it is not there in the session. Unless my computer is frying I am at a loss and will have to try a real time output or even worse redigitize through my analogue outs to a digital recorder.
I’ve had that happen with a failing hard drive.
Chewy, thankyou. I did try an export to another drive, which had more free space. The one I was using not only had the Nuendo session running but I was exporting to it also. It had less than 10 gig available. Although the drive might be failing when I exported to the second drive (had 25g avail) it worked fine. I was taxing the single drive too much most likely.
Failing hard drive - yep. It’s six years later now, and your post solved my problem. Out of the blue, blasts of white noise on a simple audio mixdown output from a solitary audio track in a project. No MIDI, no plugins, no samples. But the project and the export folder were on the same external drive, which has performed as you would expect for a few years. So I worked from the backup copy of the project on a separate drive, and exported to a further separate drive, and the problem disappeared. There was only 5.5GB of space on that original drive - maybe not enough? Thanks for putting me on the right track.
Oh my, your reply made me feel all warm inside!!!
