On my Sequencer, all samples are on 2 -1Tb raided drives (7200rpm), default preload buffer. Sequences are backed up to a seperate drive, so I am not running sessions from the same disk I am streaming from.
The majority of my samples are streaming from 2 other Vienna Machines, one for perc one for brass. So the balance of what is streaming is very organized. It’s definitely a Cubase issue. nothing to do with streaming.
Audio hardware is HDSPE Raydat sending adat to a print machine that is sync’d for playback via system link (might be something there. System link is a bit, well…shitty).
Beyond that, I can’t really say what might be causing the issue. I have tried disabling system link, but only for a moment and then had to reactivate it because I need my print machine to follow playback so I can score to picture. The difficult thing is that it happens randomly, it seems. And only happens for about an hour or two, but not every time I play back. It seems to really not like me using navigation commands. So it I use my keypad to go to previous locator and hit play, it will lag…but if I hit play and then click where it want to play from in the session, so that it jumps over to that section while playing, it’s fine. wierd. I was hoping someone else had actually experienced this before. Anyone using system link and or Vienna Ensemble Pro having this issue?
(Please dont post guesses. I appreciate it, but this isnt a philosophical discussion, and I don’t care how smart you are. I just want to fix this bloody thing)
