Cubase 7.5 Problems

    Hey all,

    Recently "upgraded" to Cubase 7.5, and so far it has done nothing but cause workflow problems, headaches, lost takes, aggravated clients.
    Contacted Steinberg to issue a refund or at least technical help, I got no response (how nice of them, I certainly wont be purchasing Steinberg products in the future).
    I've been a cubase user since 2004, and have upgraded to each new version as they arrived.
    Never have I really had any real problems at all with cubase, until now with 7.5.

    Issues:

    1. After arming selected tracks (no matter how many or how few) and hitting record, 90% of the time i get the "Error too many tracks recording".

    2. When I can actually get it to record with out giving me issue #1 and I hit stop when the take is done, sometimes it takes up to 15 minutes to process that simple command. It acts as though my brand new iMac is froze, but while cubase is taking 15 minutes to process the most simple of commands, I can surf the internet with no problems, or anything else I'd like to do on the computer.

    Those are the two biggest problems, besides the terribly lay out of 7.5, and the awful color scheme, and no real new useful features.

    Anyone experiencing this? Solutions? HELP!!

    I am not a Cubase user but I would make sure my audio destination drive was NOT the main OS drive. All the those settings you forgot about in the older version need to be redone.

    I just use the version of the software that works well. Use what works. Things as weird as a .2 version of DP killed its ability to work w a liquid mix well. I'm all set. It's easy to keep working w what works. Tape 57s all that crap, taps obviously isn't functionally great, but anything that makes the CPU I using closer to a purpose built recorder, like the old Alesia's thing, I'm fine w. It's almost easy and hard to ask a CPU to just record. It thinks it has to do more, like post on RO, or edit the fam vid.

    I usually use the latest versions because normally that FIXES problems. Of course I never willing used PT so I mean by that most other companies. That said, sometimes an upgrade is better done by a complete uninstall of the previous program and deletion of it's program data prior to installation of the upgrade. Also, Cubase has it's own forums as I recall and likely there would be specific help available there. This error though sounds like a temp folder/destination folder error. I also see now that I look at your profile you are on an iMac. I don't know much about those so other than folder settings I won't be much help.

    I'm not a Cubase guy... and I'm not a Mac guy either, so take my suggestions for what their worth...

    I think my next step - before the trash can that is, LOL, would be to do a full re-install. Dump the prog completely and install it again. Something wizzly may have occurred during your initial installation, who knows...

    I'm sure you've already done this but I'll offer the advice anyway just in case... you've checked Cubase's website to look for patches, bug fixes and/or updates, right?

    Hello,

    I have solved that problem before but unfortunately I cannot for the life of me remember the solution.
    It has to do with the ASIO driver or in this case the CoreAudio2ASIO not being prioritise and therefore recording is not posible.
    It has to do with the power saving options as well.
    What sound card do you have?
    You need to optimise your computer, you are not supposed to be online while recording.
    Apple Airport (WLAN) can cause performance issues when running challenging realtime applications. Particularly when working on large projects with a high basic load, disabling Airport might tip the scales.

    Here are a couple suggestions:

    Download the latest version of Cubase 7.5:
    Cubase 7.5 : Cubase 7.5 Updates and Downloads | http://www.steinberg.net/

    Optimise your Mac following the instructions on the link bellow:
    https://www.steinberg.net/en/support/knowledgebase_new/show_details/kb_show/optimizing-mac-os-x-for-daws.html

    The most important part are the energy saving settings:
    System Preferences > Energy Saver > Computer sleep "never", at least when working with Cubase.

    Best regards,
    GN
