Since using Cubase Pro with my RME Fireface UCX, I regularly (which means more or less one time out of two) have this issue : after having launched Cubase and loaded my usual sketch project (a mix of audio, MIDI and instrument tracks with external instruments involved), there is no sound available with the audio processing load meter being blank.
Most of the times, I have to open RME Totalmix window and fiddle with one of the available faders in it, then close it again, before Cubase starts to ‘wake up’, with an actual audio processing load displayed and all the expected sounds beginning to be usable, whether from audio sources or VSTis. I’m then able to use Cubase for a whole session without hassle. So, it’s not a big deal, but still…
Does some of you already stumbled on the issue and if so, what could be the culprit ? I first thought that using the Release driver when application is in background option could be it, but the issue remains even after deactivating it. The problem is that it happens in a complete random way : haven’t been able to figure a kind of scheme that could explain it, until now.
FWIW, my setup :
- Ryzen 7 3700X / 32 Gb RAM/ 2 SSDs / Windows 10 Pro.
- RME Fireface UCX (USB2 - driver 1.168 + Totalmix 1.61), always turned on before starting a Cubase sessions + ADA-8200, as a preamp slave linked via TOSLink.
- My Studio setup window :
Thanks for any hint…
