Using cubase 7.5.20 174 on 12 core Mac w mavericks 64gb of memory and using Motu 248 card with 2408mk3.
Every so often the outputs of my system just die. That is, no sound comes through. My solution USED to be to restart cubase. From time to time I also had an issue that if I left Cubase on overnight, I would come back to either NO Sound or very warbled distorted sound when I returned to my sessions the next day. The solution would be to shutdown Cubase and restart and all was well again.
Recently, however,instead of restarting cubase, I opened the VST connections panel and clicked on the ‘Studio Tab’ and toggled the Control Room. Just toggled it. If it was Off, I turn it On, and if it was On I turned it off. Guess What? All the warbling disappeared and I had audio again. I could then retoggle the CR button to the state I need it in and all is fine again.
Also, as part of the same issue, I recently loaded up a Kontakt 5.3 vst instrument. When I tried to use the “rev” sounds (awesome made by Output Audio) ALL sound turned off. I quickly went to the CR panel and toggled the Control Room and all was well. I noticed that every time I loaded a New instrument into this particular Kontakt Interface I had to toggle the CR. Annoying for sure.
So there you have it. For some reason on my system, the Control Room toggle is a fix for two particular problems: 1. NO SOUND 2. Warbled/Distorted Sound.
If you guys can help me sort out the issue so that I don’t have the problem at all that would be wonderful.
Thanks in advance
