Please excuse me, I don’t have any energy left to look stuff up on the forum - I am exhausted from all the stress I had these past few days.
My issues is: Since a few days back, my Cubase is screwing my pc - clicks, audio dropouts, sound is sometimes playing sometimes not, when I try to import samples sometimes I can hear them in the import window, most of the times, I don’t.
Most of the times, if I open up the audio card control panel and change the buffer size, the sound comes back on.
My big question is: Are there any ideal settings for a Windows PC to run with Cubase?
As a technical rider I am using:
Licensed Cubase 9 PRO 9.0.0
Komplete Audio 6 from Native Instruments (driver and firmware are up to date)
Windows 10 Asus Laptop (Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ 2.60GHz, Skylake™, 15.6", Full HD, RAM 8GB DDR 4, 256GB SSD, DVD-RW, nVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 950M 4GB)
Please, I am desperate, any info will help me as I am about to quit using this purchased program and it cost me a lot.
Don’t give up HINO, there will be a reason this is happening.
Could be a Windows update (this last one wasn’t plain sailing here), certain graphics and audio set ups might not play nice (automatically updated graphics drivers have messed me up in the past), hard drives can fail to read smoothly (I have had that too) and so on.
Take a breath, and then no doubt people will pitch in here with ideas and some positive energy. especially in regard to isolating the problem. If you can nail that first then things you can do to optimise your system would follow. There’s little point in trying to fine tune whilst there is clearly something wrong.
I’d take a close look at those GeForce video card drivers. I’d had a mother-*&^% of a time with video cards and drivers on my Windows rig.
Here’s what I’d try: temporarily switch to a generic windows video card driver and disable any and all nvidia / geforce drivers. If you want to be thorough about it, then I’d completely uninstall anything geforce/nvidia related from the system. And then see if you’re problems persist.
