Been working on a project in Cubase 6.5: +/- 40 audio, 4 midi tracks, plenty of automation and sidechaining. Addictive drums, padshop, the Grand.
From one day to the other Cubase crashes when loading the project. It happens when it is loading mixer channels.
“Cubase stopped working and needs to close” message in dutch. I updated Windows, updated Cubase to 6.5.3, updated my audio drivers of the FF800 but nothing had any effect.
While browsing the internet I was pointed towards crashing plugins and the possibility to remove them from the VSTplugins folder and do a startup. This is what I did and it worked. It seemed that the Grand2 was the problem. Removed it and everything was fine again.
The next day the same thing happened again! I repeated all the steps and now it seems like addictive drums is the problem. Removed it and everything was fine. I added Tootrack Superior drummer to the project instead.
Now today also this attempt to repair the project seems fruitless as he same crash appears again at project startup. Now it seems Superior drummer is the problem?!?
This way I’m running out of options…
Does anyone recognize this type of behaviour and knows where to look for a solution? Thanks for any pointers that could help me out of this devastating loop!
