Cubase 7 freezes my macbook pro

Post by bani_daciu » Sun Jan 27, 2013 12:30 pm

Hi all,

Since i updated from cubase 6.5 to cubase 7 my macbook pro (osx 10.8, dual core 2.8Ghz with 8Gb Ram) freezes. After every 5 minutes everything stops working and it takes around 3-5 seconds to come back again. It never happens with cubase 6.5 before. I've also reinstalled osx but the issue still occurs

Why happens it with cubase 7 but not with cubase 6.5? AudioGuard is activated.

Thanks,
Daniel

Aloha D,
Here is one approach. Hard drive speed.

Is your internal hard drive speed @:
1-5400 rpm
2-7200 rpm
3-SSD?

If 5400 I would say to bump it up
to 7200 or SSD speed

If yer gear ain't breakin down, you aint workin' much.

Next step would be to turn off
'AudioGuard' and see if that make a diff.

Done, and still the same. Its not the hardware. The Audio Engine in Cubase 7 is crap! Cubase 6.5 works perfect! Hope Steinberg does something about it!

Aloha Z,
Is your Mac also 'freezing' using Cubase 7.0.2?
