Cubase Elements 11 keeps freezing every 5 seconds

I’m really frustrated cause when i try to start working on a project, the program itself will freeze every five seconds. no buttons available or anything, and then it will work for a few seconds and then stop again. how do i fix this? it started happening out of nowhere.

You may have more luck in getting a reply, if you explain which operating system and version you’re using, and also what kind of computer and audio interface. The more precise your info is, the better your chances are that someone reading this may remember seeing something similar :smiley:
