I was working with Cubase 7 up until a while ago. I had a rather large project file with several instances of Kontakt. Last week, the project decided to stop opening; Cubase would take the 10 minutes to load up everything and then offer a “Cubase encountered a problem” dialog box. After some research, I nailed down that Kontakt was causing the issue.
The problem is, the only solution anyone has been able to offer as far as I can tell is to disable Kontakt. This is not an option for me. I am an orchestral composer and I work 95% with Kontakt samples.
I tried all sorts of other work-arounds:
- Restart computer (worked once, then stopped working)
- Open Cubase by itself, and then load the project (worked once)
- Open Cubase in safe mode (worked a couple times, then stopped working)
- Update Kontakt (did not work)
Finally, I gave up and spent the $200 to update to Cubase 9.5, hoping that the issues would be solved, and voila! The file opened. Twice.
And now today the problem has started up again, exactly the same as before.
I don’t know why all this expensive software just decides to stop working, but it is unbelievably frustrating; actually, infuriating. I’m missing deadline after deadline because of this. I filed a ticket with tech support, but nobody’s contacted me yet and it’s been several days.
So I open this problem to y’all. Any thoughts?
