I’ve had some good advice back in the days of cubase.net so thought it’d be worth a shot seeing if anyone knew what this problem is! I’ve been having trouble with my NI vst’s since I got a new pc recently. I had this pc built by inta audio last week so I have very few vsts installed currently and it was running cubase perfectly other than this.
I have been using NI Komplete 6 64 bit vst’s in cubase 5.53 64bit. If i open NI vst’s in standalone mode they function as normal but not when inside cubase. It started with “connection with vstbridge lost” warnings. Now I don’t get the vstbridge message as often but instead massive still produces sound and is responsive to changes but visually won’t show it’s dial positions moving at all making it near impossible to work with or save patches. Battery often crashes and creates a crashlog.
I don’t use cracked versions of any software and haven’t installed anything on this machine other than cubase, some drivers and Komplete 6 and its updates so it shouldn’t be anything malicious. I noticed that when i tried deleting the database file (at C:Users/Username/AppData/Local/Native Instruments/Massive) this relieved the issue temporarily before the whole thing failed again.
Nothing in my task manager rises much with this issue. VSTbridge sits around 5% cpu and cubase at <15%.
I’m pretty confused and spent a lot of time over the past 4 days looking up how to sort this with little luck so I would be very grateful if anyone had any advice or input.
