Here’s another gift from Steinberg that ruined another weekend. After unfreezing Superior Drummer 2.0 in a new Cubase 6 project, Cubase 6 crashed with a runtime error and poofed. Afterwards, my PLAY, Waves, Antares, Celemony plug-ins - all ilok dependent - would no longer instantiate, with a “missing” Interlock x32 driver message.
They won’t show up in Cubase, nor will they in NI’s Kore 2 and Maschine.
I uninstalled the iLok drivers and Waves (which I had just updated) and reinstalled. East West’s PLAY would now load libraries without an error, but everything else still won’t load.
Now, in my music partition on my computer (Win XP SP3), I enabled the internet, went to the iLok site and was able to confirm that I had the most recent drivers, and that my iLok 2 dongle was still functioning.
To make sure, I installed some of my audio software on my Windows 7 (32-bit) partition. Waves worked fine in Kore 2 - and in Ableton Live. Even my UAD plug-ins worked, which is funny because the whole reason I am currently using Win XP for audio is because, for unknown reasons, the UAD-2 plug-ins, Windows 7 and my motherboard were incompatible (constant BSOD) last summer when I tried.
