I’ve recently moved to MAC from Windows and I’m having a strange problem when recording.
I record the 1st track which appears to be ok, when I come to do the 2nd track I can hear an audio drop out on the original track.
On playback of both tracks there is an audio dropout on both tracks at exactly the same point of the song.
The wave form on both tracks originally looked ok so I thought it was something related to playback, however when I restarted Cubase, I checked the wave forms again and now they are showing what looks like an inserted silence happening at exactly the same time.
I can’t see any automation activated (this was a new project, so the only inserts are a couple of amp sim plugins)
I’m running Cubase 12 pro 12.0.70 on a Mac M2 studio.
I’m a bit puzzled by this one and its the 2nd time its happened, the last time I had to cut and paste a previous section of the song into the place where the silence was happening as repeated attempts to drop in at the problem area just resulted in the same silence. Cut and paste was ok, so it looks like its something automated happening on record, but for the life of me I can’t see anything activated or why it would do this on a new project.
Anyone had the same ?
Screenshot shows the silence on both tracks, before restarting cubase these had a waveform in that place, but on playback was silent.
I recorded 2 Separate guitar tracks via my Scarlett 2i2, input 1. I was using different amp sims inserts on each track but recording just the DI.
The files in the pool also have the same audio drop as seen in the tracking window.
The only imported file is the MIDI which is the drum track which is triggering Bogren Krimh drums in Kontakt7
Even when I try to drop in at this point, It seems to record ok and I can see a wave form printing on the track, but when I play back its silent for that period. if I save the project, close it and open it again the waveform is showing silence.
Very Strange !
I had to use logic to do this track instead and that was fine. I have no automation enabled and I set-up the project from new, so no template used.
I do have logic so I can track using that instead, but I’ve used cubase for many years on a windows PC so more familiar with how to do what I need using Cubase.
Reading the other thread you posted, its possible this is another bug with Sonama and Cubase interoperability which will be a shame… might have to read up more on Logic Pro if I can’t resolve this as its not usable currently
I’ve only recorded one other project on this MAC since moving from a windows machine and I had the same issue. I ended up using cut and paste to fill in the blank parts of the recording with repeated sections earlier in the track.
so it does look like an issue when recording directly to the SSD. I took a backup of the project and saved it to the local drive. Re recorded the guitars on the backup project and there were no issues.
I then created a totally new project, set it to save to the SSD and recorded some guitars and the dropout happened again… exactly the same timestamp too (62 seconds in)
Does Cubase buffer audio before writing it to disc ? or are there any settings that I need to adjust when recording to an SSD drive ?
Looks promising now I know I can get around it, but the MAC Studio doesn’t have a large internal drive so its not a long term option
