Sometimes, and pretty often, when inserting Vienna Suite plugins (64-bit) either during playback or in stopped mode, audio playback disappears completely. Cursor runs ok and Nuendo has not crashed, but audio is muted. Only way to get audio back is to restart Nuendo which makes the workflow kinda slow, especially if there are plenty of samples involved. I’ve noticed this using Generic ASIO driver, not sure how it works with other i/o’s.
Of course, this could also be Vienna Suite problem, but I’d happy to know if someone happens to know something about this…and maybe some solution?
Ok, so someone else has the problem too. I can be wrong, but it might be that I experience this even more often with 5.5.3. but not sure. Timo & others at Steinberg, have you noticed the problem, any workarounds?
I have win7 pro 64-bit running on MBP late '11, 16gb RAM, Nuendo 5.5.3 and latest Vienna Suite + other plugs which seem to behave the same way.
I’ve run into the same problem with Vienna Suite plugins (or actually only with Vienna Multiband Limiter) two or three times in NU 5.5.3, but I can’t reproduce it reliably. (… on Win 7/64 and Win Vista/64, that is - using NU 5.5.3 in 32 bit and 64 bit modes). Has anybody of you seen some kind of pattern in it? I will gladly report it to VSL’s software engineers.
@ Rob: You say you have encountered this with other plugins, too? Would you mind to mention the names? Maybe this would allow for a faster fix of the problem.
I run into this problem mostly with Vienna Suite Master Equalizer which I use constantly as channel insert instead of normal EQ (master eq’s hi/lo shelves are very useful). I think I recall I’ve had audio muted also when inserting Hybrid Reverb. I use the limiter too sometimes, but don’t remember whether that one has caused any muted audio.
But master equalizer - sure, two times even today. Getting on my nerves…
