Thanks for your reply, Glenn.
Just a bit more info:
The standalone version of TruePianos works absolutely fine on the laptop. It seems that, for some reason, CB10/10.5 and TruePianos don’t like each other.
This morning I tried opening an older CB6.5 project in CB10.5 that has a couple of TruePiano tracks on… It actually opened, and I was able to hear and edit the VST normally . However, after closing, I tried several times to reopen the same project… Freeze, freeze, freeze
Just to reiterate: The VST works absolutely fine on the laptop in standalone and with CB6.5, It seems that there is something within CB10/10.5 that causes the issue.
I contacted TruePianos support a while ago about the problem. They were surprised and couldn’t offer any solutions. I think the company that make TruePianos is a very small concern. There have been no updates on their pianos for 3 or 4 years.
I’ll give your IObit suggestion a go.
I just want to add - It would be a shame to not be able to use the piano VST in CB10.5 as it’s my “go to” piano plugin. I love the sound and the interface is so simple, it’s a joy to use! In fact, if I can’t resolve this, I’ll probably stick with CB6.5 for any projects that involve piano.
UPDATE: IObit found several drivers in need of updating. I let IObit do its thing, update drivers and reboot… Still the freezes when loading TruePianos into CB10.5
