I would like to try & document in a single post as to anyone on the forum ONLY using Cubase, and absolutely NO external made Vsti/FX…and reports concerning reliabilty or stability issues. (I think we all wish to see the word “Faultless” come up often …and I would love to see How the “chosen few” (wiser! ) Users “teething issues” compare to the majority of users installing countless external Vsti & Fx.
I think many of us would find it interesting to see how users get on, only using the Inbuilt aforesaid Steinberg Vsts/Fx.
Im no programmer, but would like to also know (any one else ) Just how much of a problem in Cubase, and more importantly its own “functionality” can a badly written VST standard i/Fx ( Synth Edit/Synthmaker, C++/ etc) cause.
So the question to throw out there, is "What “exactly” can badly written plugs cause, to interfere with the normal stabilty of Cubase’s code?..Can the code, cause windows runtime errors, can it cause cubase to find a C++ runtime error, or a graphics error,kernel "interference .automation problems etc…or even how much of the Bug checking or Beta testing is valid without the "unquantifiable gazillions of externally written code and its “quality”.
Anyone like to eek out this post into something more mangageable and coherent please feel free!>
Doesnt need to be “tech heavy” ballparks will do!. …Now do we include “Driver Code” for hardware (stop me please!)…This could get messy, so what about something more straightforward and lets stick “Laymans Terms”. If its not appropriate, Ill scoot over to AboutC++.com and a more generalised answer…So excuse me devs, Im not looking for a “diagnostic” that woud be “impolite”…just generalisations on how one piece of the puzzle can mess up the other…It may even help in users understanding its not always Steinbergs fault, so we could all benefit form certain “tech spec”… (The “Lounge” is fine Chris )
