Hi guys. I’ve been a Cubase user for over a decade now (I started with Cubase SX but my brother was using Cubase back to version 1.5 and I learned on his software) and unfortunately have never had a very stable experience. Cubase crashes all the time. This happened on Windows 7 with version 6, 7, 7.5, 8 (this was the worst so far for me) and now 9 on Windows 10 (crashed within 5 minutes). Back in the Cubase 5 days I felt like it was a bit more stable, but since version 7 I’ve had a ton of problems over 3 different PC builds.
Most recently I tried a Ryzen 1800X on an ASRock Killer SLI mobo setup. Seagate 1TB O/S SSD and 4TB HDD for library. 32GB Crucial RAM. 1080TI GPU. The build cost over $2,500. AAAAAND it crashes constantly so I’m going to start over.
Any ideas for a stable PC build (or maybe it is time I finally switch to Mac?) would be helpful. I’ve always had whatever the best possible GPU is (this build has a 1080ti) so I wonder if these powerful GPUs could be causing some sort of stability issues with the build since they are so resource intensive.
I have used RME hardware since their first PCI cards and have demoed many other interfaces which experienced even more crashes and problems with Cubase.
My budget is limitless for a stable build, including getting rid of the RME Fireface UFX if that could be part of the problem.
