Has anyone successfully uninstalled Novation’s Automap software and still been able to load Cubase 7 or 7.5 projects that had automapped plugins in them?
I was experiencing massive cpu peaks in Cubase 7.5 with Automap installed. I’m running Cubase 7.5.2 64bit on Windows 7 Pro 64bit. The peaks I was getting were enough to cause audio dropouts. I was even getting them with Cubase in stop mode, which suggested that something running in the background was the cause. I ran the DPC latency checker which showed that the peaks were not related to my pc hardware. I did not have this problem with Cubase 6.
The only thing running in the background was Novation’s Automap software. So I uninstalled that and the peaks stopped. Great! But removing Automap caused another problem. Songs that were saved in Cubase 7 or 7.5 that had Automapped plugins will not load since it was removed. I either get the “a serious problem has occurred” message, or Cubase completely dissappears from the screen during the loading procedure.
By contrast, Cubase 6 sessions with wrapped plugins are able to load up no problem. Any wrapped plugins revert to the unwrapped version, with all song settings intact. These C6 session also load up into C7 and C7.5 without problem. Something has changed in Cubase 7 with the way it interacts with Automap. It seems that once a C7 song has been started with automapped plugins, you can’t go back.
Has anyone else experienced this issue and/or found a solution?
