Hi, I am having a simular problem with “VST Bridge connection lost”. It is probably a stupid user error, but not sure why so many of us are having a sumular issue, here. I am sorry to make this so long, but I wanted to make sure I provided enough information.
At the time of the Problem:
Running on a Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 Laptop (i7 2670QM, 8G memory, Realtec ASIO onboard Video and Sound)
Win 7 64bit Home Premium, SP1
Cubase 5 64bit ( I have 6, but my experience using software a few versions back is more stable)
Native Instruments: Battery 3, B4 II, Pro53
Cubase Instruments: Monologue, Prologue,
Cubase Effects: Amp simulator, delay, eq, compression.
Recorded: 3 Guitar Tracks
0 % fragmentation on all drives used
Latest installs: Focusrite: Midnight Plugins (not used yet) and M-audio fastrack ASIO Drivers (since the problem occured, I removed them)
I have been running Cubase with no problems for about 8 months, and now, I have this problem come up. And it keeps comming up. I am not using any new plugins. I have down loaded some from KRV Audio, and I have installed a few, very few, but I I don’t think I am actually using any of them in any of the projects.
To make matters whorse, after this happened, Cubase began freezing up, and now I get the blue screen of death a lot, but only when Cubase is Open. Never had the Blue Screen of Death before this!
It began when I was using the “Cubase Backup Proceedure” to move my projects to an external drive. I was finished and about to close Cubase, and BOOM! Like a bomb, I get the message, “VST Bridge connection lost”. It suggested that I open older projects, so I closed Cubase, restarted Windows and began attempting to piece back together this lost album. Now older projects that I was not backing up at the time are displaying the same issue, so I can’t seem to open an older file to retrieve my data and work. This is very frustrating. In almost every project, Battery 3 is not working anymore and I can not re-load it. It just will not work!
Anyone have any ideas on how to salvage the album?
Any Ideas on how to avoid this? What caused it?
Anyone else having this issue, using NI Instruments, have you recently installed Focusrite or KVR plugins, or M-Audio Fast Track ASIO Drivers?
How good or bad is JBridge?
Is there a software utility out there that can verify of the 32 bit plugins are buggy for cubase? This is a must-furnish Steinberg! I have read too many threads where comercial plugins are wreaking havoc and they were not before the 64 bit transition came into play.
I am wondering if I sould re-install Cubase and NI, since I have received the Blue Screen of Death 20 times now and only when Cubase is running. This is very frustrating; only when Cubase is running!
Thank you to anyone who offers any suggestions, not so much for my personal issue, but for future stability for all of us to avoid this issue all together.
