I have been running the various incarnations of Cubase 10 on macOS 10.14.6 for months with no real major problems. I updated to 10.0.60 when it was released and all has been OK. The past few months I have been working on a group of 8 projects most days.
Today I was working one one project that I have been working on for a few days, everything was working fine.
I stopped to have some lunch for hour, I left Cubase open as I do every day, I returned from lunch for fine a error message saying that my MOTU 624 has been disconnected (which it hadn’t). I then closed Cubase switched off the MOTUs rebooted, switched on the MOTUs checked the audio was working with iTunes, then launched Cubase and opened the project I have been working on, as soon as I started playback the audio started cutting out. I then checked previous copies of the same project and got the same playback problem, I then checked all the other projects I have been working on (8 in total) and they all now playback with audio dropouts.
This is what I know and have done to solve this.
At 12.15 today this project played back fine, an hour later the exact same saved project will not playback correctly. Nothing changed on my system during that hour.
All 8 projects which at the beginning of the week played back OK now play with audio dropouts.
2 old drafts (about 2 months old) of one project playback OK.
they only thing that has changed on my system in the past few weeks is I upgraded Melodyne from Studio 4 -5, I did this yesterday but this project played fine yesterday and this morning.
This playback audio drop out happens at all buffer settings up to 2048.
I have created new preferences for Cubase, playback audio dropout still happens.
I have reinstalled the MOTU drivers, playback audio dropout still happens.
I have reinstalled Melodyne Studio 5, playback audio dropout still happens.
I am now going to download the full Cubase 10.0.60 installer and reinstall Cubase.
I see that there is only a 10.0.50 full installer, so hopefully I can Install that over 10.0.60 then use the 10.0.60 updater?
I tried to roll back to Melodyne Studio 4, although my new Studio 5 license does not work with the previous version I tried it in trial mode and still got audio dropouts.
I ran the Cubase 10.0.50 installer then ran the 10.0.60 updater and still get the playback audio dropouts.
So I am now at a total loss, I have not idea what to do next or what the problem is and can no longer work:-(
I have been using Cubase 10 from when it came out and have never had this issue.
Anyone have any idea what could have suddenly caused this while I was eating my lunch???
