From the docs for 7.1:
Plug-in resource management
When rendering a montage, the current active plug-ins in the montage are switched
off (and playback is stopped) to release resources before allocating plug-ins for the
rendering process. Certain hardware-based plug-ins benefit from this procedure, as
they can’t allocate too many plug-in instances. This only happens if the option
“Reset plug-in before rendering” is active, which is the default and recommended
option. The plug-ins will be reactivated when playback is restarted.
PG - See this thread from the old forum: http://forum.cubase.net/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=140717
Is this the fix I’ve been looking for??
