I'm sure some of you have seen me *witch* about the fact that Cubase doesn't seem to dump memory in between projects. To clarify: Let's say I have a large project that uses a lot of RAM/VSTis, etc., and then load up another large project. Even though I have 12 gigs of RAM in my PC, Cubase crashes. I remember a moderator commenting once that it was because of an issue with the VST3 system, which doesn't dump its memory from project to project if Cubase remains open, though I could be remembering wrong. This has been an issue for years now, and it's unacceptable for a pro piece of software to have to close the entire software then reopen it every time I want to load in large projects when I have an existing one open, or when I have closed the the existing project.
I have clients in here sometimes, and they have more than a few times asked me why I need to close Cubase then reopen it when going between large versions of a score, or different songs. Is there something I'm doing wrong, or a setting I can change, or something else I can do about this that I'm missing/don't know about?
Thanks for any help.
