Cubase 10.5.3 + VEP7 crashes when opening - help please!
I’m working in Windows 10, with an AMD Threadripper 2990x (32-core, 64-thread CPU), 128GB of RAM, and three M.2 NVme drives. (I spent a lot of money upgrading my PC to these specs specifically so I could create and work with a large template.)
VEP7 has seven channels (? the tabs across the top) and each is pretty full. The Cubase file has over a thousand corresponding MIDI tracks.
However, roughly 75% of the time, when I try to open my shiny new template, something crashes - either VEP crashes, Cubase crashes, or both my monitors go black (and the power reset button my computer case doesn’t work, so I have to physically go around behind my computer and flip the power switch).
Also about 10-20% of the time the files open and connect, but the MIDI playback is garbled and crackly.
Thus far I’ve tried:
Open VEP first, start the audio engines, then open Cubase
Open VEP first (don’t start audio engine), then open Cubase
Open Cubase first, then VEP, then “manually” connect VEP instances
Restarting my computer before I open the files
Excluding my VEP, Cubase, and sample library folders from virus scans (etc.)
Both VEP7 and Cubase are up-to-date.
When everything works, it’s a dream … but it can take me 4-10 tries to open my file just to start working, which is both frustrating and wastes 30 minutes to an hour of my day, which is unacceptable.
Can anyone PLEASE help???
