god this sucks. would this have never happened on a mac...?

ok. deep breath stanley.

i've got about 8 stereo tracks of audio with a few plugins running in realtime. now, when the file loads sx3 crashes every time. or my pc crashes everytime... but it was running fine when i exited the programme before this crash cycle. in fact it seemed to be running more than comfortably.

plugins being run:
waves trueverb x3
waves enigma
opcode's fusion filter
waves q2 equaliser

also:
sx3's eq section on about 4 of the tracks... automated

and i'm running it on a pentium4 3ghz+ machine, 1gb ram... s-ata drive... etc... what's the fookin problem?

damn... i got to save to different file names on a more frequent basis.

Ok, I'm still on sx2 but I've had something similar happen before. I can't tell you a specific thing to do because I honestly don't know what component is specifically causing. Here are some things I'd try:

1) Reboot, try again - although I'm pretty sure you've tried this by now.
2) Copy the file and project files (audio pool subdirectory and its files, etc) into a different folder. Try opening this copy. If it does not work, also try renaming the file and opening it.
3) Temporarily uninstall or remove the plugins from your cubase plug in folder or where ever you keep them. If these are throwing an error that is crashing cubase, I am expecting that a "plug in not found" dialog would appear and the rest would boot normally if you removed the troublesome plug in.


Your machine is more than fast enough, this is not a hardware issue. Something in the software is unhappy...something is throwing an unusual error, since I don't have a specific idea of what it is, all I can do is suggest the "trial and error inductive logic" process of messing with shit until it works. Confused

Any other cubase users have any ideas to help out?

nice one. uninstalling the waves pack worked. re-introduced the plug-ins... actually had a LOT more running than i posted above, and perhaps not in the most economically routed fashion...

damn trueverb for being so nice, but it really isn't necessary to have slightly different reverb settings for every drum sample.
