Looks like I have another problem to report… I recently upgraded my machine from XP to Win7x64 and moved from Cubase 5 to Cubase 8. I kept all the hardware (a few hardware synths, Liquid Mix) - including my old and time proven SL61mkII… And it seems after a few days of running the machine I cannot cure the following issue - for whatever reason Cubase loses connection with this keyboard. May happen after some 5 mins of playing synths (soft or hardware) or may take some 10-15 mins - but eventually it loses connection. What happens is the keyboard becomes simply unresponsive and the last played synth note typically hangs for some time.
I noticed that initially this had to do with touching the pitchbend. The keyboard would be “gone” every time I moved the pitchend’s vertically (i.e. modulation). However after I calibrated the wheel in the SL61mkII settings the problem was gone - I can use the pitchbend as much as I need without losing connection. Still, this didn’t fix the main problem - the keyboard is still lost eventually by Cubase whether I’m using or not using the pitchbend.
The solution I came with is easy but of course very disturbing - I just restart Cubase. The keyboard would be “on” again. But of course this is not sustainable in future.
Any ideas what to do?
