Cubase 7.5 Noise Bursts and Audio Dropouts

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone had any problems with noise bursts and audio dropouts with Cubase 7.5. I’ve read on here about Plugin Alliance vst’s causing this but I’ve had session without these plugins and it still happens. My suspicion is the use of 32 bit plug ins but it never used to have this problem until recently. I did recently reinstall Cubase 7.5 (both revisions).

Does it max out the cpu meter when this happens?

I try and keep it under 50%. What latency are you running? Have you tried increasing it?

Noise bursts - absolutely. It was related to audio files though.

I HAVE had plugin alliance causing MAJOR issues in Reaper - it would crash every minute or so. Once I removed it the problem was gone. That was a while back. Now my recent project uses plugin alliance and it seems to be okay.

Noveltech Character is another plugin that crashed. Also jbridged plugins like Rubber Filter cause crashes.
