I recently got a UR44 interface, which came with Cubase AI7. I am a Logic user, but I also like learning new software and tools so I thought I’d give this DAW a go. Sadly it crashes all the time. At one point it even caused problems with Core Audio in other apps. I ended up removing it from the computer and everything went back to normal.
As I said, I don’t need Cubase, but I’d love to learn to use it. Though Logic is my primary DAW I also dabble in Live and a couple others.
My computer specs are as follows:
2013 Macbook Pro Retina
2.3 ghz i7 quad core
16gb of ram
500gb solid state drive
nVidia 750m gpu
I would think that this would be a sufficient machine for what is basically a sample version of Cubase. I have no issues with other DAWs or other pro apps.
One thing I noticed is that Cubase for Mac seems to be 32bit and my system is 64bit. Could this be the issue?
If anyone has ideas or tips I’d love to hear them.
Just a note- Deleting an app from the applications folder makes no changes to the system, so if there were problems with Core Audio in other apps, deleting Cubase (or setting it to 64 bit) didn’t fix that.
True. I did notice at that same time period that the Yamaha Steinberg driver was not the most current, even though I had run the latest installer, and got that updated. Not sure what was going on under the hood, but I was getting crackling, popping, and horrible latency, all of which I had not experienced before. Today I am not having any problems and Cubase is working just fine.
I am finding it really difficult to wrap my head around Cubase so I’ll have to delve into some tutorials.
