I am recording 4 tracks from XF8 into Cubase 6.03 (Win) with VST Editor.
Two wierd things happen with some discouraging regularity:
- As I am playing in the track there are hiccups (brief periods of time when the sound just stops–it’s a fraction of a second). When I play the track back the hiccup hasn’t been recorded, but occurs elsewhere in the track. Never the same place.
How do I stop these ‘hiccups’?
- Near the end of a track the sound from the Motif just gets ‘stuck’. Instead of playing through the track something gets stuck and one note just keeps playing on. Even when I stop recording in Cubase the stuck note continues. When I play back the track the stuck note has been recorded.
How do I stop these stuck notes from happening?
I am using Motif XF8, Cubase 6.03, Windows 7, FW16e card. No problems ever occur when i play the XF by itself, or record with the internal XF sequencer. I even tried taking exporting the problem recording and loading into XF–no problems at all on playback.
Someone suggested that I need to increase buffer size? How do you do that? Is it part of the Yamaha Steinberg FW driver settings? Right now mine is set to 256 samples? Is this appropriate??
