As per above. Nothing has changed on fireface, still works on system audio if routed. FFace inputs show up in generic audio driver.
Also did the usual thing of corrupting my userpreferences file with the freeze at videoplayer engine but I reset the file so I could at least boot
So now no driver and all my port setups are gone…again
Cubase 12 latest
So tired of the instability…this is my work tool! Has been working ok but crashes occassionally. I tired reinstalling FFace driver but gut feeling it is a Cubase problem
Also doesnt let me select an alternate IO eg UR24c which is connected and running fine on SX3
FFace also still works fine in SX3…solid program…!!! I use it just for Multiband compressor…second to none
This is just for reference as i had issues with certain buffer sizes not playing at all but in the FF asio software how many WDM’s have you got setup ? Ignore the red board around the buffer size
I tried 0 up to 14
I rebooted with bypass of current config and it started so I could select Fireface
How do I get all my old settings to work…I have a lot of work on inputs/outputs/external instruments etc
Well no solution…
So crap…so I have to crash Cubase, then start up with ‘disable program preferences’ and then reselect every time I boot cubase up.
Great pro way to work…really disappointed.
I totally understand the frustration but lots are people are using very similar systems without the problems you are seeing so it’s just a likely to something specific to your system.
It’s very hard to say what the problem might be from what you have posted - but it’s worth bearing in mind that you don’t need to DELETE all your preferences if they get corrupted. There are lots of files that store the various preferences (which is a bit of a mess to be honest!) .
Next time - back them up first - then you can slowly restore them and see which corrupt file is causing the problem
Thanks for the reply
That was a couple of weeks of posts last year…no reliable simple way to backup restore prefs…not even a spreadsheet so a user can cross check what belongs where and add to that…some bits and pieces where you wouldnt imagine they would be
I tried to restore the prefs but as you say…its not clear what is where…and at the end of all those posts it was still a piecemeal solution unfortunately.
I just want to make music…at least sx3 is solid…I use that whenever I can for simple stuff.
Stop adding stuff and make solid what we already have instead of adding to the quagmire…jsut my 2c
I don’t disagree - would love to see them concentrate on fixing all the broken stuff - but in the meantime all we can do is try and work around the issues.
I’m not totally sure that your issues are entirely Steinberg’s fault but the preference system really needs to be made much more straightforward. There are files sprayed all over the filesystem.
Without an empirical easy to do step by step problem solve…its plain frustrating.
