I am using Windows 7 64 bit, Cubase 6 32 bit, and using East West Hollywood Strings, Hollywood Brass Silver, Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds Silver, East West Quantum Leap RA, and Garritan Personal Orchestra plugins.
I have recorded ten parts using different instruments on each part, and am using a few effects on some. Now when I playback the project, one, two, and at times All of the tracks stop sounding, sometimes coming back in only to skip out again. In Cubase I have Audio Priority on Boost, and Disk Preload at four seconds. My Project and VSTs are on an external hard drive, and my computer has tons of free space, plus being set on performance mode.
Can anyone tell me why my playback is skippy? Is it a RAM or CPU problem? Or maybe my audio driver?
I am on a deadline and would appreciate some help! Thanks!
