I’ve been having a random freezing issue with Nuendo 11.0.41 on a Mac Pro (late 2013) with AMD Firepro D300 graphics and Catalina 10.15.7. The screen just freezes with no beach ball etc, and have to shut down by hold of power button.
Happens mostly when moving something, like plugin window or parameter. Although happened yesterday when just playing back a sole stereo track with no plugins enabled. I disabled GPU acceleration after this, then it froze again later when moving the Slate Metatune plugin window. The last time I can remember a definitive action was last week moving the FabFilter L2 plugin window. GPU acceleration will have been enabled as only learned about it yesterday. I’ve had days with no issue. I use various FabFilter plugins with every session.
It’s a shared machine at the studio and my mate has no issues with Logic. Going to MacOS 11 is not an option as we went from Mojave to Big Sur and it was chaos with crashes galore everywhere, even after a clean install, so now on a clean install Catalina.
I also have a Cubase 11 license but haven’t installed it yet, or many other things I’m not in urgent need to use.
Would this GPU issue apply to this older mac? There’s 2 Slate Raven connected as monitors, plus an Apple TV to use as a third screen elsewhere. Never had an issue with Mojave. Also, no issues with my custom built Windows 10 PC at home, or my Windows 10 laptop.
Any info or assistance appreciated. Thanks.
