Hey people, I had this issue once before but i’ve forgotten how to fix it. Basically there seems to be a mad accumulation of asio data that silences audio until… wait for it… when’s it gonna happen… get those headphones off quick!
… tick… tick… tick…
Utter sonic destruction.
I’m using inbuilt audio and my buffer size is 512 and multi processing on or off doesn’t make a difference.
couch is a great place for music… i’ve made most of the tracks i’ve done over the last couple of years on the couch, seriously.
I say ASIO because i’ve been monitoring the performance meter. All of a sudden it goes to max… and stays there… that’s when the explosion occurs. It ain’t pleasant on your ears… and it’s incredibly frustrating.
Ive had this happen to me a bunch of times as well, ONLY when working with my Motif XS (Yamaha Firewire ASIO) and I just opened the project.
Recently, I noticed, once the Motif XS VST Editor was synced up to Cubase, I hit the play button and it started playing for a few seconds, then, lo-and-behold, the dreaded silence came, so I looked at the Motif’s screen and saw that it was still attempting to sync. So once it smashed all the notes together in the “big bang”, I stopped it and waited for the Motif itself, to stop syncing. Then all was well after that.
Ive never had this happen other than with the Motif, and am pretty sure it was because the Motif had not yet fully synced, even though the VST Editor had completed the sync. I noticed it only recently, because I rearranged my equipment, so the Motif is now my main MIDI controller and I can see whats going on, on its screen.
This probably doesnt contribute anything, but just thought Id mention it.
Hey guys, been busy so sorry not been able to respond. I’ve actually been running Cubase without the issue. No idea why it’s stopped. Surely the disk isn’t the issue when i’m hardly using any audio? Most of my music is MIDI and virtual instruments. I have one audio track with a 4 bar file.
I still think it was my Motif not being fully synced, that caused it. I only experienced this when using the Motif as a sound module (using an M-Audio Keystation), and was going by the Motif VST Editor window, saying it was synced. Since I rearranged my equipment and can keep an eye on the Motif’s screen, I know when its really synced. Sometimes its a good 30 seconds after the VST Editor displayed it as being synced. I have not encountered it since…
Are you guys using external instruments that require syncing?
