I have a random question, so sorry for its generic & boring nature. I’m on 7.0.7, Mac 10.8.5, latest everything, 32GB RAM, Intel 12-core.
Most of the time I’m writing, I get random beach balls. Whenever I start or stop playing, try to select a certain tool (glue, scissors, mute), try to set locators, go from Arrange to Edit window, etc. Just random acts that are literally BASIC GUI functions to navigate Cubase; nothing out of the ordinary what-so-ever.
These “stalls” usually take about three to five seconds or so, and I’ve noticed that the disk on my VST performance window generally spikes after Cubase “wakes back up” as it seems that Cubase had to render/read/write something before it moves on. It’s very strange. It usually happens maybe once every 10/20 minutes or so-and though I’ve learned to be patient it’s becoming increasingly frustrating. It reminds me of when I was on Logic, and I’ve never really had this in Cubase.
I have lots of Kontakt instances loaded with some other synths, usually a decent amount of plugins on tracks as well-but with the hardware in my machine and the preferences I’ve set, I would imagine it should handle these tasks easily.
Has anyone had these random beach balls? I’m considering trashing the prefs, but I REALLY don’t want to lose my key commands since I can’t figure out for the life of me how to import a .xml file for the key commands I’ve already saved.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
