This is a challenge to Steinberg using Cubase Pro 13 and HALion Sonic 7 latest versions as of 11/9/2023.
Or to anyone who would like to set up the following example and report their results and/or comments as to what is causing the audio dropouts and how to stop them.
I am using Windows 10 latest version. I have a UR44C for audio interface.
Create a new Cubase Pro 13 project
Add HALion Sonic 7
Populate all 16 slots with whatever presets you like – my list is below
As you test, you can mute whatever combination you like but should have at least 2 slots that are active
I route all slots to channel 1
Load the pads with a chord progression preset on all active slots and trigger some pads for a second or two as you work through the pads using your MIDI controller
Optionally, you can just hold down some chords for a few seconds and go through a chord progression as you like
Maybe some of the presets in my list are too resource intensive?
Please let me know if you have all kinds of audio dropouts and glitches and if the CPU maxes out or the audio stutters
I use the list below
|Cello In Concert||Muted||1|
|Full Concert Strings||Enabled||1|
|Concert Solo Strings||Enabled||1|
|Heavenly Angel Pad||Enabled||1|
|Flutes of Sadness||Muted||1|
|Lush Hybrid Strings||Enabled||1|
|Velo Analog Strings||Enabled||1|
|Warm Orchestral Strings||Enabled||1|
|Angels & Strings NoteExp||Enabled||1|
|Studio Finger Bass||Muted||1|
|Chord Builder – 124||Muted||1|
|Full Octave Strings||Enabled||1|
Is it just too much for Cubase and HALion Sonic to handle with more than a few slots populated and being triggered at the same time?
Or is it better to create separate instances of HALion Sonic for each sound?
I sometimes get audio dropouts with just 1 slot on some presets
I’d really like to know if anyone has a workaround or how to stop the audio dropouts
I would like to layer sounds that I like, maybe there is a better way that avoids dropouts for the presets I am using?
Thanks to anyone who attempts to repro this!
