Running Cubase 10.5 on a new iMac. Using a UAD Apollo x4 interface.
EDIT: My real-time peak meter now INSTANTLY at 100% upon opening a project. Other projects seem ok for the moment. reinstall? delete prefs? If so, which ones?
While auditioning a note, preparing to pitch-shift it using the pitchshifter in processes, playback got super-choppy. The Cubase performance meter spiked and stayed spiked. The Apollo DSP meter (shows its memory) started jumping all over the place – instantly jumping from 23% to 84% to 35%, on and on, high and low, changing every couple of seconds, whether the track was playing or not.
If I close Cubase, everything settles down.
I’ve restarted everything, but the problem returns after a few minutes. Now it is happening every time I try to audition a sample from the mediabay.
If I click on any sample, the Cubase PERFORMANCE meter spikes and stays spiked. Just now, my entire computer shut down and restarted on its own.
Is this an instance where I should erase the plist? If so, could you remind me which one?
