Alright I’ve got a few bugs to report, three of which are on video.
First up is this phantom FX track fader movement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4mdBX4ANiY&feature=youtu.be
The fader is randomly turning down between the values of infinity to -40dB. I think it has to do with the CPU spikes which is another thing in question. Why would the CPU be spiking when I’m running only 16 audio files and one VST. I’m not even going crazy on plug-ins as most of the tracks are raw with some compressors, an instance of VariAudio and the new amp rack. I know its not my midi controller because I set the range of the midi fader to not go below 126 just to see if the fx channel fader would still jump to the bottom and it did. It also doesn’t show any incoming midi messages when it jumps down so its got to be a cubase problem.
EDIT: forgot to mention the project is running at 48kHz 24bit
Other glitches can be seen in my DJ tutorial vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6YUiTD4JEk&feature=channel
First glitch is at 58 seconds
Second is at 1:53
I explain workarounds for both. The second one is more understandable since Loopmash is trying to read beats in the uploaded material and if the .wav file in question is too compressed it might get confused by the lack of transient spikes. I think loopmash would be a lot more useful if you could just load a .wav segment where you tell it exactly what bpm it is and how long it is so the slices are fixed instead of trying to analyze the best placement for them. or maybe steinberg could just trash the whole idea and make us some kind of live performance tool a la izotope’s stutter edit.
I also ran into a glitch where cubase stopped recording from the ADAT of the fireface 800 in the middle recording! I saw another poster had a fireface problem but i think his was unrelated. I opened another project file and tried to record from ADAT again and it worked fine so it seemed to be a bug within that particular project.
I’m going to go ahead and start removing a lot of plug-ins from my comp as people say that can mess things up.
