Well, getting a new PC and Win10 SEEMED like a good idea- AT FIRST.
I’m seeing an issue now where during playback (MIDI stuff) Cubase just “pauses” for a half-second/second. Obviously, this is not good. All output ceases, and the progress bar just stops. Then it resumes on its own.
the machine is fairly beefy for its purpose Dell Latitude 2-in-1. I7 Quad Core. 16GB RAM. mSATA SSD. Win 10 home. Cubase PRO 10.0.30. I run everything though a dock, and, in a compromise due to lack of USB ports in the dock, a USB 3.0 hub.
I have no idea where to begin to troubleshoot this issue. Is it hardware? Windows? Is there possibly some bloatware on the PC that robs all the resources for some kind of scheduled task? I would think if the USB hub was the issue that the symptoms would be different (i.e. bad data/sounds on my MIDI devices), but not causing Cubase to go to a brief sleep.
I will continue to hunt in the forums, but wanted to bast this out because finally, after a very long hiatus, I have a gig upcoming! So of course this is freaking me out…
