Im having a bit of a problem using my HD Native I/O with Cubase 8.0, hope somebody can help me out there.
I usually use my HD with PT 11 and do most of my recording there, but lately i have been getting quite a bit of work that requires extensive programming with samples so I also use Cubase 8.5 for this. Last year I decided to ditch my Apogee interface in hopes that the HD would cover both PT and Cubase, but the avid core manager seems to be giving me quite a bit of grief, I use Cubase rewired to Ableton Live and load all my samples in Vienna Ensemble Pro outside the host, so here is my problem:
After a couple of hours working in Cubase, with a lot of samples loaded (about 28 Gb) all of a sudden the sound starts cracking up and getting glitches. This usually happens when I load any new VST instrument or create a send, but sometimes it just happens out of nowhere (and the cpu graph on the activity monitor shows a suden spike in the cpu usage). Now my question is: Is this behavior caused due to the fact that the HD I/O was made just for PT and its use with any other DAW through the avid core manager is not supported 100% or is it a question of something like Word Clock?, do i need to get SYNC or do you think the best solution would be to just get a dedicated interface for Cubase? like Symphony. Or is it a question of actually upgrading to PT 12?
This is driving me crazy because i have to restart Cubase 30 times a day and im loosing so much time!!! Hope somebody can help.
