Hello all… I hope there’s someone out there who can help???
I have been having a lot of issues with Cubase 8 Pro recently, I get a mixture of BSOD’s, complete hangs (where my computer freezes and I have to force shut down), and sometimes when this happens I get a very high pitch tone too.
My PC is a dedicated machine for my home studio, it gets used for nothing but music and has very little installed apart from Cubase, Reason (which I hardly use) and other related software programmes. It’s only a few months old, and I have had a few issues which I have manages to sort out, but now this is becoming much more frequent, here’s the spec…
Windows 7 Pro 64bit
ASUS M5 A97 R2.0 motherboard
4gb 8 core AMD 8350 FX
MSI R6670 (AMD Radeon) Graphics Card
MOTU 2408 mk3 sound card, with PCI / Firewire
Cooler Master case with 3 120mm case fans and the CPU cooler (which has 2 fans).
I don’t even think I’m making it work too hard, my latest project is still at the “loop” stage, I have 8/9 instrument channels, not really working the CPU and about 7/8 audio with very few plug-ins running.
I do keep an eye on the CPU and it very rarely hits the top, although it does spike from time to time. Initially I had a massive issue with the CPU spiking every few seconds but I found that enabling the ASIO Guard fixed that, I have it set to maximum as it seems even less stable on the medium setting, without it enabled I get random clicks and pops quite regularly which is no good.
At the moment I can’t get more than a few minutes of use from Cubase without my machine crashing, I’ve had a look about and tried a few things but it’s not getting any better.
If you have any suggestions that may help I would be eternally grateful!!!
