Cubase REcording/Playback Problems

Hello:
I am having trouble with Cubase SX. Intermittingly the audio will cut out on recording or playback. I am running Cubase SX via Presonus Firewire on a Dell Laptop 5150. I have 1.5 gigs of memory and an internal 80 GB and external 200 GB HD.

What is causing this problem? How can it be resolved? Thanks.

Check first the sample rate maybe its to high like instead of 44k. its in 48 96 or something like that so the buffering isnt catching with the recoding . alogn with your lattency configuration must devices are ok in 512 latency.
and also be shure not to be recording directly to tyour external hard drive
in case of plugin overload issue it would not stop recording suddenly it would slow down first with some crackles and then stop or must shure freeze.
so impretty shure its somethin else.
hope it works

good luck

I was having the same problem with an old Sound Blaster Live audio card. When I was exporting, there would be sound-blank-sound-blank.. etc. The problem was that it could not handle all the effects and plug-ins. It was a Multimedia ASIO driver (software). So, I will guess that either the audio card cannot handle ASIO drivers HARDWARE, either the driver in the devices menu is not set to hardware, and it runs on software ASIO. If your card cannot support hardware ASIO, then you must work with low sample rate (44100) and almost no effects. VST instruments will also have much latency.

Cubase SE audio recording problems.


Ensure that your computer is not low on resources (RAM CPU etc.).

You have a resorce monitor on windows, otherwise try:StatBar Console .

If computer uses too much CPU or goes out of RAM , that is the reason for the noise inside the file.

Sonar 6 Producer - palyback quality issue


I had this problem today whilst installing Sonar on my new laptop. It wasn't the click track. It was the playback glitching, clicking and rattling. I put the buffer size to maximium but it was still happening.

I got round it by downloading the latest version of ASIO4all (2.9 beta4) and installing it. I then opened Sonar 6, options, audio, advanced, then selecting ASIO in the driver mode drop down box. Then I closed Sonar and reopened it.

If you use one device for recording and playback it should work now but if like me you use seperate devices or if it doesn't work click, options, audio, general, ASIO panel, advanced options. Here you can select your inputs and outputs. Play around a bit here. Mine worked when the output of the playback device was selected and both the input and output of the recording device was selected.

ASIO4all sorted out my latency issues as well.

Hope it helped.
