I updated the control-room PC from Nuendo 11 to Nuendo 12 last night. Since then, the Apollo Twin Duo USB that sits on the console as a satellite for UAD2 plugins loses connection to the UAD2 plugins and disables them at seemingly random times and then turning the Apollo Twin off and back on causes the computer to crash.
It sounds like a Universal Audio problem, as opposed to a Steinberg problem, but its not. This has only began since upgrading to Nuendo 12. Infact, mixing with UAD2 plugins involved was working successfully in the hours immediately prior to updating to Nuendo 12.
Turning the Apollo Twin off doesn’t cause the system to crash and shutdown unless UAD2 plugins are being used in Nuendo 12.
The Apollo Twin is NOT being used as an interface, merely a plugin processing satellite for UAD2 plugins.
