I’ve scoured the forums for a solution to this horrible problem I am having but no luck…
I am working on a collaborative project where some audio files in the pool are shared in a dropbox folder. My keyboard player updates a piano part and my project should all be updated and happy right? However (and I’ve noticed this problem on and off for years) when a file is updated, Cubase (9.5.10 pro) seems to have major problems. Random spikes of white noise and glitches at full gain. The waveform doesn’t show this in cubase and opening the file in Wavelab plays absolutely fine. All other tracks play fine. It’s definitely not a disc issue, cpu issue, clock issue etc etc.
I tried deleting and remaking audio images, I tried backing up the project, hoping that copying and remaking all the files and images to a new folder (even on a new drive) would sort cubase out, but no luck.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? I was hoping cubase would notice a file has been changed and update what it needs automatically. What I cannot fathom is how backing up the project doesn’t fix this.
As you can imagine, playing a project and then being subjected to random high volume white noise bursts when a file is updated externally is not nice, and not easy to find in a large session either as the wavform doesn’t show it up!
