I’m using Cubase LE 5 along with a TASCAM US-1800. At first everything was running smoothly and at top speed, but just recently I started encountering a lot of problems involving lagging and freezing with Cubase, especially whenever I use the zoom tool. I’ve tried searching through other topics to see if anyone else had a similar problem, but I’ve been unable to find anything so far.
The project I’m working on right now has 12 tracks (5 of which are blank because I’ve been unable to record on them yet). The problem main problem I’m running into right now is that I’m trying to zoom in on a track so that I can do editing, but every time I click on the project window with the tool, Cubase stops responding and I either have to close it down through the Task Manager or wait about a minute or so for it to finally respond to the click. Aside from the program’s not responding to the zoom tool, it also lags whenever I click the rewind, playback, record, etc. buttons in the toolbar.
I’ve tested it on a brand new project as well with just one track, and the problems seem to disappear, so I’m starting to think it might be because of the number of tracks in my actual project. If that is the case, is there anyway for me to fix these issues on a larger project? It would be really disappointing if I can’t even record on 12 tracks, seeing as how that’s just the minimum number for some of the stuff I’m hoping to work on.
I’ve already tried re-installing the drivers for my TASCAM, but that has failed to fix the problem. And as far as I can tell it has nothing to do with my processing speed because even when the project is in full process the CPU rarely goes above 10%. If anyone can help me fix these issues, or at least point me to somewhere/someone who can, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
Also, if it helps, I’m running Windows 7 64-bit.
