I’m running Cubase 5.5 on an iMac, OSX Snow Leopard.
I like to be able to tweak as much stuff as possible while the sequencer is running, playing back material. But in Cubase this quickly becomes a problem, or at least feels really unstable / clunky, because when the sequencer is playing, every time I insert a new channel (of any kind), add/change a Send, or add/change an insert effect, the outputting audio clicks / pops briefly but loudly, and the playback skips once, but it’s noticeable for a few seconds because anything running through sync’d FX (like a delay) goes off the beat for a moment after the pop/skip happens.
It’s really annoying, because I’d much prefer to add inserts, change sends, even add new channels all during audio playback.
so, first question: is this normal? to be expected in Cubase? if not, any ideas how I go about fixing it? I had the same problem back with version 4, insofar as I recall.
I’m mostly used to using Ableton live, and there is never any such issue; but I like using both DAWs, so I’d really like to solve this if possible in Cubase.
