Cubase SX problems with getting sound

Discussion in 'Music' started by pagmusic2012, Jan 25, 2012.

  1. We have been using Cubase SX v2 on PCs of a similar age in a suite with twelve computers. Despite setting up a default with all the audio settings saved, students find they have to re-enter these when they load and even then, get a load of varied error messages preventing them from getting sound out themselves. They know how to re-set up the Inspector Column but even this does not solve anything permanently. Does anyone have a long-term solution for this? I would be most grateful to hear of one.
    Thanks

    I've been faced with similar problems when using versions of Cubase on a network. If anyone has a solution it would very useful to read about it.
    In the meantime I set up a successful default page using each computer as a standalone. Students can use a different login for access to the school Intranet.
     
  4. I'm not familiar with Cubase but, as a bit of generic advice, have you tried saving all your settings within a default 'song' file and using that as your launchpad template, so to speak. I have used this in other systems.

    I have stated many times that in my experience difficulties with cubase have been overcome by being free of the network.
    Re-working the def.all set-up will help if there are particular topics/start points you wish to teach.
    Long term solution:
    Buy macs and keep off the network! [​IMG]
    Only use a local network for sharing files.

    I have done this in the past, and it worked fine - although I never used student computers to record audio.

    I would always create a project with the instruments already set up, including any stimulus parts - like the ground bass if I was ripping off Pachelbel... I would save it to the pupil drive, then they could open, save it to their folder and get busy..
     
  7. Thank you for all of your comments.
    Yes, whilst I am investigating Macs as a matter of routine upgrade to our resources, yes, I do use a default file which students access and yes, it does appear to be a network issue. I will reccommend our technicians take us off, set up a music only network and see what response I get!
     
  8. I have the same problem. I have Cubase on ten machines but some of them have stereo audio devices attached and other have midi interfaces or keyboards with USB. I though my solution - of creating templates for the different types of set up would work. It does on the computer I set it up on - it loads and runs fine every time. However, if you create work on one set up and move it to another - the audio just won't work. Especially when we transfer anything to the studio with the 16 track interface - it is just not recognised.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem - but it is frustrating.

    You will only want a local network to share files and different def.all files.
    The move to macs is aspirational. Well done.
    I have the luxury of working in a small unit with both PC's and Macs,
    Qute simply the macs never let me down. They are pounded all day and still look as good as new!
    Good luck. I hope your ICT techies free you of the network.
    As they are control freaks it may not be easy!
