Noise burst

Something weird is going on - I have 2 PC. One at the studio running Windows 7 and a PC at home running Windows 10. I know there is compatibility issues with Windows 10 as such I did expect some issues. There was burst of noise on Windows 10. I was ok with that. BUT…

Yesterday morning, I worked on the studio PC (Windows 7) and suddenly I get the same noise bursting thru the speakers like i did on Windows 10…

It never happened before… And I see on a few posts people experiencing the same issue. (Gearsluts). I know this sounds weird … But… Is it possible that Microsoft changed something with Windows update, to make windows 7 a bit more like windows 10…

Weird…

have you have installed a new plugin on both systems? most likely its running in demo mode

yeh sounds like a plugin wanting authorisation

No I didn’t. It’s very random. On certain channels… Without any plugins…

Maybe check that CB and all your stand alone plugins are set to run as administrator.

Are the disk meters spiking at any point?

I had this issue in Windows 8, but so far haven’t in Windows 10.

I do use some Plugin Alliance plugins, but I found it very strange in my experience that the noise bursts are happening on audio tracks with no plugins on them. Also, they are much much louder than typical demo noise bursts.

I’ve been using Win10 for that last couple of weeks and so far i’ve not had any of the white noise bursts I did on Win8 with the same projects/plugins (which use a few Plugin Alliance plugins).

Gentlemen, have you found any solution to this problem? It’s happening to me more and more, and I literally haven’t installed any updates.

  • I tried running projects from different hard drives.
  • I turned all the plugins off - it’s still there even with blank insert slots.
  • Noise may disappear on one section of a track and appear on the other.
  • Restarting a project helps, but it appears again from time to time.

What’s painful is that now I have to be very attentive while re-listening my mixdowns before sending them to a client - what if this noise appears on cymbal ambience or some background FX vocal track and remains unnoticed until it’s too late?

I’m on Windows 7, 64 bit. Cubase Pro 8.5.20

i have the same problem. Didn’t find a solution. But i have guess: Since the plugin alliance olugins are used in the projets i have these blasts. … hm maybe i have to remove them…

Hi,
It continues to escalate, and PA sees no way to solve the problem before the summer.

No chance with Cubase 8-9 and Win 7-10.

And no hint on their page, thats fact.

or any VST/VST3/AU-compatible host running on a supported operating

Please contact the Plugin Alliance Support, That´s really very important.

Same here, you have to go exactly through every mixdown, or you don´t use new PA plugins.

Best,
