After great time with Cubase SE 3 I encountered an awful problem. When I try to add 2nd audio track (stereo or mono) the program freezes for some time, and then adds the track. The problem occurs every time the new track is added, rending Cubase unusable. The same problem occurs while muting and unmuting tracks.
I`m using Windows 8.1 x64
M-Audio Audiophile 2496
and SSD drive for OS and software.
Things i`ve tried:
2)Uninstalling all the plugins (VST)
3)Reinstalling drivers for music card
4)clearing ALL cubase temp
5)changing power managment settings
6)defragmenting/optimizing all hard drives
Whole setup worked perfectly without any hiccup for 3 months, no new soft was installed, no changes in hardware, no updates for Windows.
Reinstalling OS is really last resort option, because of my work schedule.
