I’m working on some sound effects and I’m doing some crazy stuff with the tempo track, like going from 30 BPM to 300 BPM and back over half a bar repetitively. I’m using one synth (Sylenth) and multiple instances of a couple of Cableguys plugins (MIDIShaper and Volumeshaper).
In Nuendo 5.5.4 64-bit under W7-64, the project crashes constantly. Oddly, the same project is stable under Nuendo 5.5.4 32-bit. However I find that if I work too quickly in N32 in the Tempo Map, I can also seriously crash N32, to the point where the entire system becomes non-responsive even after I close the project and try to close N32.
Clearly I’m not using the Tempo Track in a musical way, but technically everything should work. There’s really not a lot going on in the project other than one held note and plugin and synth automation. As the system was crashing at one point, Sylenth came up with a GUI that lacked any of it’s detall (knobs, descriptions, values).
How can I narrow down the problem to synth, plugin or Nuendo? Then again it could be the combination… Thanks for any help.
