Hey all Nuendo / Cubase Users.
i'm producing / mixing / recording for a long time but lately i'v encountered a new problem: ocasional sound "cut off"s for about 0.5 sec each time which gets worse as i play or record.
I dont think it's the usual "to much CPU" cut offs for 2 reasons:
* the performance meter CPU goes to minimum rather then maximum
* it sometimes acure when i only put 2 plug- ins. or just run the project for to long. it just happend to my friend in a post production studio also and his comp is WAY more powerfull running Nuendo on a dual w/ 4 G RAM plus 2 powercores.
I AM running cubase on a Intel P4 3GHz - 2 G RAM and a powercore PCI.

What recording software are you using? What version of Windows are you on? The ASIO driver for the Lambda should have been installed when you loaded the software that it came with, and if so there should be a control panel that will allow you to select that. The other option is to use ASIO4ALL. It is a free ASIO driver that works really well for most sound cards and software instruments and recording software like Cubase, Nuendo or the many other programmes out there. If you need more help let me know.
Im having the same probz, got a Hp Pavilion Vista using mobile pre amp usb when i record using a condenser mic XLR nothing is picked up from the channels in Cubase or Nuendo. Im trying to record vocals but the Mic is not picked up and i cannot hear myself in the headphones and it wont transfere to cubase.
It has worked before when i had a desktop, but this only worked with a separate m-audio sound card inside the desktop and i plug in the output jax leads from the desktop (soundcard) to the m-audio usb pre amp
Is this why it is not working for the laptop do i need a Jax connection and where is this audacity
Have a very very quiet space in which to record, with good acoustics (this means a room that will give a flat sound, preferably one with carpeted walls and celings, but any small, well-furnitured room should do).
Do not mix with the interface. Simply put the gain as high as possible without clipping and mix later in your recording program (Cubase, in your case). You can always bring the level down, but trying to gain an already recorded track will introduce noise.
If you are recording vocals, use a pop filter. When recording anything, experiment with different mic positions to attain the best possible, clean sound.
i have a similar setup (Cubase LE & Tascam 144) and each time i start up Cubase i have to make sure there is no digital input going to the tascam. once cubase is started up but no project loaded i plug in my spdif from my DAT machine and then open my project and all is fine. does that answer part of your question?
i have a different problem though, i'm trying to record my DAT tapes which are recorded at 32khz and cubase doesn't recognize that sample rate properly. it'll record no problem, and play them back fine, but exporting always creates mismatched sample rates in the exported file. sucks big time and i have got no idea on how to fix it either.
I chased this same problem with a friend's laptop using Cubase. Additionally, he had several recurring pops at high end, in regular intervals, with 23 seconds of trouble free gaps in between incidents. Eliminated hardware problems, so I contacted some Cubase user groups and they indicated their older software was not compliant with the newest hardware... in other words, they suggested he buy a newer version.... He did (gasp, sticker shock... the horror) and the problem disappeared. Might be all that is wrong for yours, if your desktop has newer hardware and older version of Cubase.
you might want to downgrade to xp because vista uses alot of ram to run it. you could also get more ram. you need about 1gb and a half to 2 gigs to run most recording softwares and interfaces. i personally use vista cause i lost my xp disk and i got 2 gbs of ram and everything runs great, but if you really want to get into recording do what im doing and save up and buy a mac.
