Updated to Cubase 6.5 64 bit, reinstalled MR816CSX drivers, MR Editor, Extensions, CC121 drivers. Installed new hybrid (Momentus XT) solid state/disk hard drive, re-installed Windows 7 Pro 64 bit all new drivers and updates, Dell Vostro 420 2.4 ghz Intel Q6600 quad core with 6 gb ram, Nvidia NVS 285 graphics cards one PCI 16x the other PCI express. Ran Latencymon and it says I should have no problem with audio drop outs. Disabled just about everything in Windows and I'm STILL having problems with audio drop outs. Imported audio from a CD and even had dropouts during playback. I've run buffer size all the way up till I had over 30ms total latency (using direct monitoring on the (2) MR816CSX) and still have drop outs. I've searched the web for fixes and have been unsuccessful thus far.
Does anyone have any input as to what or where I shoud be looking? Drivers are all up to date, running an add-on PCI Firewire card specifically made for audio/video applications (can't remember the name at the moment) and it's drivers are also up to date. I did have this problem before the update to 6.5 but was hoping some magic would happen during the update to remedy it.
Very frustrated that I haven't been able to trace this down. Thanks so much to anyone with input - all is appreciated. Ulti
