I’m running Cubase Pro 8 on a Macbook Pro (OS X Yosemite). Things generally run smoothly as expected. However, on occasion when opening a project that I’ve been working on, my system will hang while loading a project that I’ve been working on. Cubase will open fine and I’ll get the Hub page. It’s only when opening a project Cubase will SOMETIMES hang while loading a channel. The channels will vary – sometimes my bass channel will hang, sometimes my drums group channel will hang, etc. I will have to “Force Quit” Cubase and re-start and then re-open the project.
I typically use the same plug-ins from song-to-song: UAD, Sound Toys, Waves & Slate. NO VST instruments. My studio partner who works on a Window 7 PC experiences the same thing from time-to-time. Any ideas or known conflicts with certain plug-ins?
