Hello fellow musicians,
I have a little problem and maybe you can help me out.
First some useful information:
- Intel core i5 4670K (haswell)
- 16 gb Ram
- all SSD drives (Sata 600)
- Graphics: MSI geforce GTX 950 2gb
Interface: Steinberg UR-RT2
DAW: Cubase Pro 10.5
The system is up to date (latest drivers) and configured for audio / DAW, which means no intel speedstep, no background services and so on. It runs smooth and fine. No problems here.
I hooked up my e-drumkit (Roland TDK-1DMK) via Midi.
I use BFD3 as vst instrument
Load a keymap and kit and it all works fine
I created a track with 12 mp3 songs to play along with
I have fiddled with the buffer size and set it to 512 (no latency issues)
If I go higher, latency issues occur. If I go lower, the problem starts earlier (not all the time though)
When I play along for an hour or so, then suddenly the application (not the system) crashes, sometimes with humming sound, sometimes not. When I restart Cubase, it runs fine again, sometimes for a while, sometimes just minutes.
Because it is realtime i thought the cpu can’t handle it, but the cpu meter shows just like 30% usage (all the time).
BFD3 is a heavy VST instrument. So maybe it all adds up and causes the problem.
Do you have any idea’s or thoughts what causes this problem?
I appreciate you input very much!!
Note: No problems when in mixmode, system runs fine.
