Cubase recording interrupted

An issue has cropped up in the last day or so. When I begin to record, a recording is created for the first 32nd of the first measure, the cursor interrupts its travel, then resumes travelling in the middle of the first measure but without recording. This is the same in any track in any project. It does not matter whether I have the buffer size set to small or large.

I would appreciate any assistance.


It sounds like a performance issue? Are you on Mac or Windows? If you are on Windows, could you test your system by using LatencyMon utility, please? Could you try to increase your Audio Device’s Buffer Size?

Hi and thank you. I have discovered that some problems I was having monitoring my recordings were being caused by a faulty USB cable. Changing the cable has fixed those problems. I’m wondering whether that issue might have caused some corruption. However, I would like to follow through on your suggestions.

I am on Windows 11 and will run the utility you mention. As to the audio device’s buffer size, are you referring to my mixer? I have an ART USB Mix 6. I don’t know how I would change it’s buffer size. I am using the Generic ASIO Low Latency Driver that comes with Cubase.

I am pasting below the short version of the LatencyMon report. Can I ask you, please, to help me follow through with their advice?

Your system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates.

I’m glad you sorted it out. At the other hand, I’m sorry, I really don’t understand your setup.

I would expect, you would use the ART USB Mix 6 driver. If this device doesn’t have any USB driver, use ASIO4ALL, please. As far as I know, the Generic ASIO Low Latency Driver is using the integrated sound card, not any external audio device. But as I’m not Windows user, I might be wrong.

I’m sorry, I’m not Windows user. But I believe Google will help with these exact steps. Also the steps might differ from the BIOS version, your motherboard type, etc.
