It might be the reason, because when i press spacebar to stop playing the sequence, the nuendo disk meter peaks.(it peaks when i press 1 to bring the cursor to marked area as well)
Does it mean my disk is planing to move to next world sometime soon, and that i should replace it? (2 years old, about 50% usage divided into 3 partitions)
Or perhaps is there another way making life easier for him?
Oren, what you describe sounds like when I am auditioning an old project stored on DVD, or a project on my hard drive that has 4GB or more of data, or are accessing a project on a server that is experiencing high traffic. The system just can't deliver the data fast enough. When you locate to a new location or hit stop, Nuendo will buffer a bit of the data at the cursor location. You see the delay of Nuendo buffering via the spikes on the disc meter. So it sounds like there is something going on with your system which is causing a bottleneck in how it is accessing the drive.
Let's clarify something. Do you only have 1 drive with 3 partitions, or more than 1 drive? With Audio production you should have Nuendo on your OS drive, and you should have a separate drive for your Nuendo Project and audio files. If you are trying to run Nuendo and store the project from the same drive this could easily be your issue. If you try to run sample libraries also on the same drive you are asking for crashes.
For what it is worth, I run project 24/7 that are around 1Gb of data with 60+ tracks, several plugins, 1 memory hungry VST instrument, with a standard 7500rpm hard drive with no problems. But get better than 2Gb of data with where all the audio is needing to be accessed at the same time and you can start to experience more disk spiking.
Give us a bit more insight into what you have and how you are working with Nuendo.
Single drive or multiple, large or small amounts of data, large track counts, do you need to access 1 stereo file with some overlaps...or 60 tracks or large audio files, is the drive highly fragmented????
