Spark Vintage Drum Machies Crashes 7 Artist

Okay I use Spark Vintage Drum Machines. Not the hardware controller, but the stand alone VST. I can program to my delight the drums in the VST. Once I hit play for the entire track though it gets about 2 or 3 measures in then locks up, and crashes. Happens every time. Does Steinberg just have a thing with Arturia software, because now this is my 2nd Arturia VST that’s not working with Cubase Artist 7, and in Cubase 5 they were working fine.

Is your Spark Vintage Drum Machine up-to-date? Is your Cubase up-to-date?

Are you using the Spark as stand-alone (with ReWire – if there is any) or as VST plug-in?
