Pugins crashing Cubase

Hi guys,

I've recently added a few free plugins in Cubase 7. Ever since it's become unstable and freezes up when I try to use certain plugins. I know the obvious answer is remove or don't use those plugins, but when they work, they really sound good. Is this a known problem, is there a way to get around it?

Thanks

64 bit/32 bit?

OS? Cubase? Plugs?

I'm using 64 bit, Windows 7, cubase 7 (artist) And so far the ones that seem to be causing the most problems are:

FerricTDS
ThrillseekerXTC
ThrillseekerLA
Massey plugins (which have been removed)

However since I instaled these, other plugins that were working perfectly have started acting up.

Thanks for your help

I've got 2 of the 3 plugins stated above installed

FerricTDS
ThrillseekerVBL
ThrillseekerLA

They work perfectly on my System with C7.5.10 64bit

What is your CPU consumption level at?

Any DAW will "crash" (or at least, 'bottleneck') when your plug-ins' CPU usage surpases your available.

As I recall, Cubase used to be none to forgiving with overloaded CPUs, either.

Best learn to make best friends with that "freeze" function if you're overloading it.

Cheers

Hi Aaron,

I have a 5 year old Dell dual processor with 6G of Ram, so I have no trouble believing that it may be struggling with certain applications or plugins. I have noticed that before freeing permenantly cubase does start to lag, so what you're describing sounds like it may indeed be the culprit.

I'll have my task manager open next time I work in cubase and I'll monitor the CPU usage.

Thanks for your help

FWIW, Bootsy's plugs are all x86 so they use a bit bridge to work under x64 and that can be quite buggy.

Good luck. I think there is also a performance monitor feature inside cuby, if you don't want to mess with task manager.
