I’ve been having a problem since upgrading to Cubase 6 from Cubase 5 (I never got this problem in Cubase 5), details as follows:
Windows 7 x64, Asus P67 Pro, Intel i7 2600K, 8GB DDR3, RME HDSPe PCIe (most recent driver), Cubase 6.0.1 (running 32bit as I use many VST instruments that are not 64bit compatible yet).
Whenever I launch Cubase 6.x, regardless of whether it’s with a new or existing project, if I play anything out (audio or VST) the sound is ‘crackly’. So, every time I launch Cubase I have to go to Device Setup and switch the ASIO driver to something other than my default RME hammerfall ASIO, then back to the RME ASIO device again to get rid of the ‘crackly’ sound.
Is this a known issue?
NB: I notice in the FKBL that there is a defect listed (ID 27682) which relates to RME ASIO devices crashing Cubase, but this isn’t happening so probably doesn’t relate to my problem.
