I just duplicated 4 Vocal tracks with multiple INSERTS and the project started to stutter and now I can’t hear a thing, what have i done.
If i remove the duplicated tracks the project plays ok?
Or do I need to Render the tracks now, because i have too many with particular inserts, then disable and hide the original?
Also, I seem to now have a processing Overload, is that the CPU/Memory allocated to Steinberg, can i increase it?
any ideas, thank you
Just save a new copy of your project file and try the things that you mentioned.
This doesn’t look good above!
And don’t enable this in the Edit_Preferences_VST, you cant stop the Project playing and seizing up while this is on the screen!
Also tried to reset this below and it just goes red again!
SO Ill RENDEER some files, see what happens, maybe my CPU and Memory need an upgrade, have we any current PC specs from Steinberg !
Here’s the CUBASE requirements, I’m well above this
Interesting I removed 2 x disabled plug ins under the Insert column (not using/turned off) and the Asio Guard Monitor changed, still high though!
But, even more interesting it actually plays OK, for a few bars, no stuttering or freezing, then the ASIO-Guard hits the top and goes RED again
Now, I have removed maybe 30-40 disabled plug ins in the Insert column (most were on Vocal Tracks) and now the Audio Performance monitor looks like this, and the Project is playing through again.
Here’s my Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver settings, is this OK.
Yes, your system is at it’s limit regarding real time audio processing. That can happen even with powerful computer if you have to many too CPU-hungry plugins (and maybe lots of them in series).
When you write removing “disabled” plugin helped somewhat, I guess you mean just “bypass”? A real disable (ALT-click) takes the plugin completely out of the signal path, and it shouldn’t use any CPU at all. With just a simple bypass, the plugin is still in the signal path, but without processing. Usually, there should be no significant CPU usage there, either, but it is not none.
