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.

When i import an instrumental into cubase it will playback but will be very distorted, if i change the device settings in cubase and dont use the io2 it will playback fine so im assuming its something to...


In order for an imported file to sound correctly in Cubase, the bit rate and KHz must be the same or you will create garbage when going through your interface. For instance if you have ripped something from a CD it will be in 16 bit 44.1 KHz format. If you were to pull this into Cubase at 24 bit with 48 KHz selected as your projects rate you would encounter this problem. (I'm guessing this is what is causing your problem.)
Please open up cubase and click import, a window should pop up asking if you want to convert formats, please select the check boxes for conversion for the bit rate and KHz (depending on what version of Cubase it will be something similar to this.) An alternate solution is to go to the project preferences and select the rates that match the imported material before importing and no conversion will be necessary. (Although, I recommend always working in 24 bit and 48 KHz if you're machine can handle it.) A final possibility is that you have the latency set really low and the converters can't handle the speed at which the information is being processed. If the above should for some reason not work, check in your preferences box in Cubase if possible or through software that came with your interface and increase the latency. This can cause an audible delay between the time you hit a note and hear it back so make sure to decrease it before recording and increase it while mixing since you won't being recording new material and can use that processing power that would have gone to making sure you hear your live audio quickly can be steered to use plug-ins and get crackling free playback. Remember, with latency, even if get crackling from a low latency you will not hear that crackling upon mixdown! However, I'm quite sure your problem is with conversion rates, but if never hurts to know or get a reminder on things like latency. Cubase is a high quality product and I hope you enjoy using it. Thank you and I hope this helps.

Crackling and popping during playback/recording, latency issues. Using Firestudio Project, Windows 7 and Cubase 5.


Turn OFF all resource hogs such as Anti-virus, Anti-pop-up, and other background programs. Disconnect all internet access such as wireless and Ethernet service programs. All these resource hogs and programs for instance that keep track of when to run scans just cause interrupts of the servicing of the high speed audio grabbers. Your machine should be BARE of all these hogs.

Make sure that in the control panel of Windows, "Sounds and Devices" under the "voice and recording" tab, the Yamaha mixer is shown as the device for both voice recording and playback.

All it needs is a USB connection. You'll need to go into Cubase device setup and make sure your lambda drivers are selected. Then create the audio channels in cubase with the inputs set as the inputs you're using for guitar and mic. There is a monitor button right next to the record enable button that needs to be enabled if you want to hear playback from your computer.

Good luck!

No sound in playback (but can hear click track)


This might seem simple, but just to check: you have switched off the monitor on the track when you go to playback? With track monitor engaged, you will not hear playback, but will continue to hear the live monitor.
