I have been wotking on a song for one month ( I use cubase 6 64 bit last version); at a certain point I decided to load reaktor’s Razor plug in as vst instrument in one of my midi tracks; then ( not immediately, but after about 10 minutes) an error message appears which displays something like that
" Vst connection interrupted; please load a previous version of this project; deactivate if possible, the not-working plugins"
aftter one minute panic, I tried to reload a previous version, then i copied the missing midi files ( belonging to the NEW project) to the previous project, and then again, the same error message;
I noticed that not all of the instruments were deactivated, for example fxpansion geist worked; then i deleted the vstplugin xml file from steinberg cubase 6 6 bit folder, reloaded cubase for scanning of the new plugins;
now, i reloaded a pervious version of cubase deactivating razor from vst plugin window, but again the same error message; after this message appears, i cannot hear anything!!!
please notice that i dont have any cracked plug in; everything, i repeat, verything, from the smallest plugin to the waves plugins, are original and regularly purchased;
can you suggest me a way to overcome this "interrupted vstbridge connection " problem?
I assume you are using 64 bit Cubase with some 32 bit plug-ins from your mention of the bridge. A full description of your setup would help but one thing you could try is to open the project in 32 bit Cubase, making the bridge unnecessary. Hopefully, that will allow you to get the project open to at least save a copy. You could also try hiding all the offending “bridged” plug-ins from Cubase and then once you have the project open, save a backup then add the plug-ins back in.
I’d try what jaslan said, and if it doesn’t work, instead of deactivating, uninstall the plugin that caused the error and try to open the project. Another thing that works sometimes is trashing your preferences, but that resets your customizations, so I’d uninstall the problem plugin first.
Good luck. I know what is losing a project that’s been worked for a long time, but I’m sure you don’t have to desperate yet.
Have had this happen several times too. As described opening in 32 bit usually does trick. Another solution is moving 32 bit plugs (example reaktor.dll) you are using into a folder not being loaded in cubase by making folder on desktop (example name Vstplugs-old)then move them back one at a time to see which is messing you up. Are there any effects loaded with VSTi? Those can also cause same error. FYI in case you didn’t know cubase will just tell you the instrument or VST plug is missing when you start song
Hope this helps and good luck! Please let us know how you solve
Open cubase start a new project w/no VST. Go to Devices > Plugin Information / Select VST Plugins and uncheck all plugins
Then restart…This is just a theory but might work.]
If that doesn’t work
Go to VST plugin path (make sure you save all path info) and trash all path folders
These are just guesses but maybe it will help you get that project open. Then you can export audio/midi/inst etc and open fresh in uncorrupted project
Hope something works here
