This morning I loaded up a project I’d been working on yesterday with no problems.
The sound on the Eastwest Pianos QL (midi) track immediately began cutting out intermittently. There are also a handful of strings tracks but they were fine, no dropouts—just the piano track.
I exported the track as a wav with the same result–strings playing fine, piano cutting out. But I noticed it’s cutting out exactly every 15 seconds, stays off for exactly 1 second, comes back on and plays for another 15 seconds, goes off for 1 second, the exact same pattern over and over throughout the whole track.
I’ve tried everything I can think of. Multiple reboots. Doinking with the buffer size. I installed no new software, updates, etc between putting the computer to sleep last evening and starting work again this morning. Didn’t even close Cubase. Checked today to make sure sound drivers are up-to-date, also Cubase and all plug-ins. This just came completely out of the blue and has me baffled. I’ve never had a problem like this before. Any ideas?
