This is a weird problem that is not in itself very problematic but I’m afraid it may be symptomatic of something deeper as I’m having some other problems as well.
After a while when working in Cubase two “Cubase” menu items appear at the top of the screen next to the apple icon. The first one does nothing and the second does its normal functions.
I’ve been working a lot lately with multiple VST instruments (Kontact 4, Absynth, Halion Sonic and some other synths) and I think that may be part of it as it does not seem to happen when just doing audio work.
Also last night, when adding a vsti, the ASIO meter pegged and things got real whacky as in distortion, and erratic computer behavior. Turning off/unloading vstis did not help nor did quitting Cubase and reopening project however quitting Cubase and restarting computer did. After that the project worked fine including the last added vsti (Korg MonoPoly) that set things off before.
I’m not sure if these issues are connected or not, hopefully the one involving ASIO meter pegging will not be ongoing but I thought I’d report this much to see if anybody has experienced similar or has any ideas.
