I recently updated from Cubase 7.5 to Pro 9.0.10. I spent some time building a template that is about 40GB in size, with about 20 instances of Kontakt version 18.104.22.1681 (I don’t think there are any other instrument plugins, but I am using EWQL’s SPACES reverb plugin version 1.1.05 64bit). I was using templates in 7.5 that are basically identical in terms of content and size, so I don’t think that system overload is a problem. When I try to create a new project in CPro9 with my new template OR open a saved project created with that template I run into the following problem:
The initial project load appears to go just fine, without issue. Then as soon as my project “appears” (main edit view, mixer, plugins, etc.) it is frozen, with the spinning-blue-loading-cursor-of-death doing it’s thing. Task manager shows that the program is “not responding” but my instruments are continuing to load into RAM.
However, if I load another project first, and then “open” and “active” a project created with the large template it will often (but not always) load without issue, and I can work in it for a long while. But if I leave it running, say, overnight, when I come back in the morning it will be frozen. EDIT: this morning after trying many things, I cannot get the project to load this way either.
Any ideas about what is going on?
(Additional Info about my system: running windows 7 ultimate on a quad-core, 64Gb Ram machine. I don’t think I have updated anything else since updating Cubase about a week ago.)
