Two Cubase 7 Problems
      27/01/13 09:00 PM
Aaaaaggghhh, Cubase 7 is driving me mad! I love its new features, but I have spent so much time trying to get to the bottom of a couple of "quirks" that I haven't made much music with it yet.

I have a Q9550, 8GB RAM, and I'm using W7 64bit and the Focusrite Saffire ASIO driver. The main problem is that I get glitches and dropouts with VST synths with a buffer size of less than 1024. Is this normal? It means that my input and output latencies are around the 25ms mark. As I mentioned in another post I thought this was down to a lack of RAM when I was using the 32 bit bit version but I have now installed the 64 bit version and the problem is exactly the same.

The other problem is that from time to time (I'm afraid I can't be any more specific) Cubase freezes. When it does this I can play a track by using keyboard shortcuts but if I try to do anything else or click anywhere with the mouse it doesn't respond and makes a "bing" sound. I would normally associate this behaviour with having a dialogue box open or the program waiting for a response from me but this doesn't seem to be the case. The only way round it is by quitting Cubase through Task Manager.

Can anyone shed any light on these issues please?

Le geek, c'est chic
