I have realised that I am having a problem no one could help me so far.
The problem is with audio.
I have Cubase6, RME Fireface UC, Lenovo ThinkPad x201i.
My problem appears in two ways:
- I press play – Audio doesn´t start playing .
In Cubase6 cursor runs, timecode runs, but audio doesn´t play. Audio character activity advice doesn´t show anything /Cubase6 mixer, Fireface mixer/. In Cubase it looks as everything works BUT IT DOESN´T PLAY.
- I press play – Audio starts playing but after some time for example one minute it stops playing .In Cubase6 cusor runs, timecode runs, but doesn´t play.
I use Cubase6 only as audio+midi player /for playing wav files/. I don´t use Cubase6 with VST instruments., Efx etc. Cubase6 is installed only in custom configuration without Halion, VST, etc. There isn´t any other software installed in laptop (Office, etc.).
I use only one project in Cubase 6 which is approximentally 28 hours long where 330 wav files are. In the project is one stereo track /Fs 44.1, 16 bits/, one midi track (only controllers for digital mix Yamaha 01V96 at the beginning and end of wav files) and one cycle marker track. Each wav file has three or four minutes and has its cycle marker. I do wav playing via „Play Selection Range“. The selection of wav files runs in the Browser. Wav files / cycle marker / is on and plays and during that time while it is played in the Browser window with the help of up/down buttons I look for another wav file-cycle marker. And this is done all the time round. My problem appears once or twice in ten days. It means that it runs 25 hours correctly and then audio stops. I must restart the laptop , sometimes the error appears twice at the same time and then ten days it runs correctly.
Laptop is used on the stage during alive applications.
Where can I look for a problem?
In notebook and Windows 7?
Or the problem may be caused by the way I am using project in cubase 6 and its size?
Is it posssible that notebook Apple Pro Mac would be the solution of this problem?
Thank you for your help. Martin.
