Audio Dropouts inside Cubase ONLY on MacOS

Post by chikitin » Tue May 23, 2017 2:56 pm

I have installed TOOLS for MR V1.7.8 for Mac OS X and setup MR bed on the manual.

MR played back songs from ITuens flawlessly. However, when I am inside cubase, it hear audio dropout even if my project has a single audio track.

I have followed Mac OS X Tuning Tips for Audio Processing. ... Processing

Basically my computer is solely connected to USB ( elicenser) and FireWire cable.

I have spent hours to fix this. I hope we can fix it so I can start my music project ASAP.

I have uploaded the allowed 3 screenshots here. I will upload them after posting this.
Thank you very much.

Im guessing your Mac cant handle all that streaming inside Cubase. Your drive is only 5400RPM BTW, should be a 7200RPM drive. I would put those big libraries on an external HD and stream them from that
Cubase Pro 9.5.41, StudioOnePro 3.5.6
OSX 10.13.6 High Sierra
MacPro 2010, 14GB Ram, 2x 2.4Ghz Quad Core
Steinberg MR816X Tools ( Current)
CC121 (Current)
