Hey, A few days ago I had Cubase 10 Elements working completely fine, projects filled with VSTs with no drama whatsoever.
After a Windows update a few days ago, everything has stopped working, If I put 2+ VST it starts to crackle, so as you could imagine, more than that, there is like zero audio coming through.
Its not the interface as the standalone vsts work fine and all other sound coming through has no drama.
I even tried upgrading to Cubase 12 Elements to see if it was the program but getting the same issues.
Audio Interface is Focusrite 2i2 Gen 1 (Device Settings Sample Rate: 44100, Buffer Size 256, Tried with safe mode on and off)
PC is ASUS ROG Strix G512LV
Intel(R) Core™ i7-10750H CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.59 GHz
512 SSD (Nowhere near full)
I have the same problem with Cubase 12.0.50. Everything was fine until a Windows update a week ago - since when I get horrendous pops, dropouts and crackles as soon as I play any project with more than 1 VST instrument.
I will see what LatencyMon detects. In the meantime I have disabled ASIO Guard which seems to have [temporarily - as I intend to switch it back on at some point] stopped the issue.
