I've been on Win 7 until last year (obviously up to Cubase 9 only). Apart from the FLS slot thing the only other limit was CPU/DSP.

Installed the latest Win 10 update this week that lifts the FLS slot limit and now have to train myself to get rid of the paranoid limitations I've conditioned myself to use :-) Don't think that Win 7 will see that feature.

However that won't help you. Try Takashi's FLS checker ( to see if it's an FLS problem at all or something else. In case of FLS slot troubles, go Win 10 or Mac.

July 2019. I STILL have this problem.

I am on a Mac by the way. Definitely not a windows problem. Mindblowing that this is still happening.

Imagine having a 70-80 track project, pressing play and never being 100% sure it is sounding exactly like it should. This happens to me in every template. With inserted plugins from all manufacturers.

When Cubase doesn't feel like it, sometimes virtual instruments don't make any sound until you press mute and then unmute.

Trusting my work to this piece of software has been by far the worst decision I have ever made. I used to make fun of Pro Tools because of the many quirks and workarounds you had to use, but this is on a whole other level.

No explanation or aknowledgement from Steinberg, they must be too busy implementing so many useless features. Maybe spend your time making sure your basics work correctly? Just a weird idea.
