A couple of days ago my computer crashed completely. I had to re-install my OS and everything, but luckily for me I saved all my projects on to an external hard drive.
So when I had finished installing W7 32bit and Cubase 6.5 I tried to open one of my tracks that I was currently working on.
All the samples are there, every midi-note and everything.
But there is no sound what so ever from the midi tracks, (instrument tracks) in ANY of my projects i’ve have ever made.
And all the sounds I made are set to init patch, and all the synths that i’ve used presets on (nexus) are set back to the init patch also.
So the whole projects is there, but there is no sound… I tried copying an entire project into a empty one, still same problem?
And when I try to use another preset (nexus) Cubase crashes, and even if I change one preset to another there still isn’t any sound.
What the hell am I supposed to do here!? All my work is completely ruined…
Please help me.
There’s your problem. The data will be there. Cubase just needs to redirect to that drive or maybe try moving what you saved back to it’s “original” location.
I would say that all being well that you may have to be prepared lose some preset data although you might get lucky and retrieve the lot. I think Cubase is fairly well behaved in situations like this but it’s never straightforward.
Moved data after a crash is an area where programmers traditionally don’t expend much time on but there’s plenty guys here who can walk you through the process. Just have patience while they find the time to help you.
Steinberg support may be quicker off the mark in your case.
But the drive letters can still be different from your previous installation.
What madsv actually asks is:
Is the drive letter of the external drive at this moment the same as it was at your previous installation?
So when it was E: before the crash, it’s highly recommended to set is up as E: again at the present installation.
It was E: before, and is still E:. What am I supposed to do here really? I mean, all the samples are there (kick, snare etc), and all the midi-data are still there… It seems like there is some kind of a routing problem, but everything is correct… It’s strange.
