I am a new user. This product (Cubase 5 Le) came bundled w/Lexicon Alpha Studio that I recently purchased. I also purchased (at the same time), Korg nanoPad and nanoKEY. I am running M1Le (came w/nanoKEY) and EZDrummer (came w/nanoPAD). I guess these are called plug-ins.
My system is Windows XP Home (SP-3), w/Pentium ® 4 CPU 3.00GHz 2.99 GHz, 2.25 gigs ram, on Dell Dimension 4700.
I have done as much research as I can think of to solve this problem.
For now, I am only using nanoKEY. My nanoPad was defective and I am waiting for a replacement. So, even though I am creating drum tracks with EZDrummer, I am doing that with my nanoKEY only. NanoKEY is the only device that I am currently using…aside from, of course, my Lexicon Alpha recording studio interface.
Problem: M1Le (via nanoKEY) makes Cubase crash. When I start a new project I am able to add an instrument (M1Le) and record a track, say a drum track…ONCE. But when I am finished with that track and try to add an additional M1Le track, Cubase crashes (every time) and a warning dialog comes up saying; “A seious problem has occured…contact Steinberg Technical Support…”.
I am able to add other (instrument) tracks…EZDrummer, HALion, as well as audio tracks and midi tracks, even though I am not very familiar with using them yet. But only when I try to add another (a 2nd) M1Le track does Cubase crash.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Cubase. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling M1Le. I have the latest drivers for my nanoKEY and I have reinstalled those as well. I have tried everything I can think of, working on this for many, many hours to no avail. I have read in your Knowledge Base about the need for perfect drivers for plug-ins and how to track down faulty plug-ins. But I am now at the end of my means of being able to proceed forward. I would be most appreciative of your support.
