Hi, Steinberg Support.
When I start Cubase there is a delay at the Midi Initialization stage, but the program does continue to load after 30 - 35 seconds. Usually Midi Initialization would take no more than 4 or 5 seconds. It did not do this before installing my RME UFX. I do not use Midi at this time.
I am using Windows 7 64-bit SP1, Cubase 6.0.2, the .966 RME USB Driver, RME TotalMix .924, and RME UFX Hardware Revision 342.
I’m glad to continue being able to work despite this, but it is certainly a hassle and buzz/inspiration killer when my primary audio application feels so sluggish to get up and running. Oh, and my computer is an i7 (sandy bridge) 2ghz, has 8gb ram, and an intel ssd, so apps normally start up relatively quickly.
I have already posted this on the RME forum and received this response:
Thanks for your time.
