Am at a bit of a loss from a troubleshooting standpoint, so am wondering if anyone else has experienced this at all.
I am on Windows 10, on a Ryzen machine. All software (and hardware) is original.
I use (and keep up to date): Waves plugs, Soundtoys, Izotope, Plugin Alliance, Valhalla etc. These aren’t in every session.
VST Instruments I use often: Vienna Ens Pro, Kontakt, Dune, Etc. These are all part of my template.
I am connected over the ethernet to VEPro servers.
the symptom can be described as:
On opening Cubase 11 or 12, and, once in a project… notably - on the first time of going to any kind of file explorer window, so it could be Export Audio mixdown, or export video - the file explorer window goes white and freezes. So the window pop up comes up, but everything is blank. Cubase locks up for a varying amount of time. So it is frozen. Everything else in the background is not frozen.
Then suddenly, usually within a few minutes, it unlocks itself, file explorer populates as normal and everything is well.
What I have also noticed is that, this doesn’t happen again as long as i don’t exit Cubase.
Also, this doesn’t seem to happen at all on an empty session. It almost always happens when in an existing fully loaded session or template. Meaning 1000s of tracks.
Has anyone experienced anything like this or have any tips?
I have updated or checked drivers of literally almost everything. Including GPU.
Also up to this point, i’ve done extensive troubleshooting, including replacing motherboard, cpu, buying new RAM that was on the QVL list of the new motherboard. System works great and is stable. But this symptom happened before the motherboard/cpu swap. It was worse actually, the lockups lasted longer. At least now they seem to be short…
