Cubase Pro 8.5.20: Opening Autotune 8.1 interrupts audio

Opening the Autotune 8.1 VST Plugin while playing audio stops all audio momentarily.

  1. Insert Autotune 8.1 on a audio track
  2. Play project with tracks with and without the Autotune plugin
  3. Open plugin window with “e” button in the expanded channel.

Result: All audio drops out for a second or so before returning.

Autotune 8.1.5 VST 64-bit

Best regards,

I am surprised no one else has this problem as it still happens in Autotune pro for me. I sent a support ticket to Antares 2 years ago and they said they were aware of the problem but never did anything to fix it in the new version.
