Hi guys, I’m new to the forum and absolutely exasperated. I swear by Cubase and know it inside out but can’t for the life of me figure out what’s happening here! Heck I’m the guy my musician friends call when they need help with Cubase lol
I’m just getting random temporary freezes in Cubase 7.5.4. I’ve turned off Autosave btw just in case. I’ll give you an example:
I open the key editor and select a note and then use the arrow keys to change the note pitch. There is a 2-4 second delay before the note moves anywhere. This is new and has never happened to me before. I thought maybe it’s a hard drive issue and the samples are taking time to load when I use the arrow keys to change to a different pitch. So I tried samples that were on a different drive… and then I tried a brand new project with just a simple MIDI track that isn’t routed to any output whatsoever and it still delays to change note. There are no plugins, just an empty project with one MIDI track! It’s driving me insane! It’s completely slowed down and frustrated my workflow. I’m on a very capable machine and this problem only developed very recently. I’ve tried troubleshooting, disconnecting any extra unnecessary stuff connected to my mac, even re-installed cubase from scratch, tried saving and opening the project on different hard drives.
I also get temporary freezes when I press play sometimes. It will delay before starting to play.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I’ve googled the crap out of this and can’t get anywhere.
Mac Mini Late 2012, i7 2.3GHz 16GB with RME UFX. This is a very powerful setup that has served me with no problems whatsoever for years. I’m still on High Sierra as I wasn’t sure if newer OS would support Cubase 7.5.
Would really really appreciate any help. Thanks!
