Cubase 6 Artist & Waves 9


Can anyone shed some light on this? I’m not super technically minded, so please go slow with any advice! Thanks.

I have a host of Waves plugs ins, but thought I’d take advantage of the 64$ sale & bought RVox yesterday which meant I had to upgrade to version 9. At this point everything went haywire. Cubase wouldn’t load properly & when it did there was such a ‘hang’ it was impossible to work or to even hear the tracks properly. I did some research and read from what limited information there is online that it might be to do with the graphics drivers, so I updated to the latest version - this took a while to figure out. Anyhow, that done, now Cubase won’t load projects at all with Waves plug ins (so that’s all my projects then). It goes through the ‘loading bar’ bit at the start but is very very slow. This is the info it gives when I am forced to abandon the load:

A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.

There is no information relating to problems with Waves 9 and Cubase provided by Waves online but I have read that there some definite issues as posted by various users on the internet.

My system is: i7 920, 64 bit Win 7 (32 bit Cubase), 6GB
I installed Waves Shell in Cubase 6 VST plug ins folder rather than the generic choice - that shouldn’t be a problem though.

Anyway - any help would be muchly appreciated.


Are you having problems in new project as well or only in established ones containing Waves plugins?

I thought I replied to this - must have hit the wrong button.

Thanks for your interest Plays123

Yes I can load very simple projects without Waves plug on them and also launch new projects.
Problem is when I try and load projects with Waves plugs in them.

De-installed and re-installed as instructed to by Waves Tech Support…no change…

Any ideas?



update - Waves Tech Support ask whether I use Intel HD grpahics? I responded not knowing what this means.

He then suggests the following:

"You can try to deactivate the Mother Board Graphics from your Bios, this should resolve the issue.

Be careful when you go through the Bios".

Does this sound right? Does anyone have any idea what the hell he’s talking about!?
