Hi a question from a newbie :
I have a project which contains several plugins including an instance of Halion Sonic SE using 5 midi channels from a, previously dissolved, instrument midi track. The ASIO meter started to run high with audible glitches as it peaked in the red. This was not in itself an issue as I froze the VST instrument. After freezing the instrument the ASIO meter remained high at idle and on playback I continued to get audible glitches.
I saved the project, restarted cubase and reloaded the project, following which the meter showed 10% at idle, slightly higher on playback but with no audible glitches. I then unfroze the instrument and the high load and glitches returned (as I would expect) but on refreezing the high CPU load and glitches continued until I restarted Cubase again (this I did not expect).
Am I doing something wrong?
My system is a 2GHz Core Duo laptop with 4GB RAM on Vista 32 bit. The audio interface is M-Audio Profire2626 with the buffer set to 256 samples.
Thanks - Dave
