I have been a long time POD farm user and was using it in 8.5 via VST bridge without any issue. As Cubase 9 is not supporting 32 bit plug in anymore, I wasn’t really interest to upgrade until I found the plug in 32 Lives (saw some post in this forum who’ve been using it successfully). Before I upgrade, I did couples of tests under 8.5 environment and it was pretty promising, so then I went to upgrade to Cubase 9. Afterwards, I really regret this decision, the performance was really bad when I was using POD farm via Lives 32 in Cubase 9. Whenever I set buffer around 128, the sound started to cackle and drop out audio, both on monitor and playback. I was using really low buffer (e.g. 32) to track guitars in 8.5 (VST bridge) before without any issue (even with Ezdrummer and multiple POD farm instances in different tracks in the background).
I went to talked to the support in Radix (the company made Lives 32), did some more tests on modified version of the 32 Lives but it doesn’t help. End up I have to return my 32 Lives and asked for refund (since it is the only reason that I purchase the plug in).
Now, I have decided to return my Cubase 9. I knew it is holiday time and Steinberg is not going to reply to my request soon. Normally how long do you guys hear from them? Also, any POD farm cubase 9 user here? What workaround do you use?
I guess 8.5 will be the newest Cubase that I can use unless I give up all 32 bit plug in.
