For some reason today I am unable to export a stereo mixdown.
I’ve been using C7 quite happily for a month now and have previously been able to export without a problem (5 minute pop tunes). The main difference with this particular project is it’s a 45 minute soundtrack, but I see no real reason why Cubase or Macbook Pro would have any difficulties, yes it will take longer but that’s to be expected. The track plays through without glitches, pops or any unwanted artifacts but when I come to export, the dialogue box opens, and I click ‘Export’ and the whole system freezes up requiring a restart. (I must have tried about 10 times this morning already)
Though a musician/writer and user of Cubase in one form or another of many years, I cannot claim to be much of a techie when it comes to computers and the Macbook Pro is new to me so is it possible that it’s the Mac and not Cubase that’s giving me problems? Or should I say, the way I’ve got it set up.
My set up is as follows:
Cubase 7 which I’m running at 24bit 48KHz,
My Macbook Pro is the 13" late December 2012 version (OSX Mountain Lion, 2.5GHz intel core i5 with 4 GB 1600MHz DDR3)
And a Focusrite Scarlett18i6 interface.
I’m almost certain that’s it’s due to user ignorance so if anyone out there can advise I will be very grateful. Thanks.
