I upgraded yesterday to Win 10 and ran into and resolved two non SB related issues. I’ll post them here so that others might be helped when running into these.
I kept having fatal freezes of Win 10 after starting up Cubase 8 Pro, forcing me to do a hard reboot (small button on PC case)… process kept hanging on initializing the VST mixer. I knew this was the step prior to loading automap (for my novation Impulse USB midi controller) and after disconnecting the Impulse all went smooth (kinda).
Updating automap also got stuck at the step of connecting the controller. By updating Automap (from 4,8 to 4.4.9) without connecting the controller and then rebooting with controller connected, I was finally properly prompted to update the firmware, after which the Novation bit was resolved.
My UAD card was not found anymore, causing all plugs to fail and rescanning took ages. Removing the UAD software and UAD-2 card, and reinstalling these again all fixed this issue.
Took me about one hour to upgrade my PC and so far all goes pretty well, although I have not run Cubase for an extended session yet.
Keep on rocking, yeah!
PS: Posted in General as this is where most upgrade-to-Win10 posts are placed.
