I have started to get hanging issues where everything including audio driver stops and I get the Windows hourglass. Did it once today for about 5 secs, I rebooted, played for a bit and it hung again for a couple minutes and stayed hung so did a hard reset. Played for a few minutes and it hung again for 5 secs. I have the log file attached but I can’t figure it out.
I wish I could say exactly what has changed recently on my system, but I went through some major issues the past few weeks with a particular rack not playing 3 specific sfz files, then my interface wouldn’t connect, etc. So I’ve had to do several things. I updated my interface driver and got a new TB cable (the old cable was the root cause of the interface not being recognized), rebuilt the rack from scratch with a new rack, got rid of Fishman Tripleplay vst which had caused occassional crashes only when editing (it’s only standalone now to check string sensitivities, no dll file in the vst folders).
Also, I’d been using Avast for about 2 years and disabling it except for updating and downloading new vst’s. When I started having issues I uninstalled it and used Windows AV/Firewall instead but the notifications wouldn’t stay off, so I reinstalled Avast. Seemed to be OK for a few days but then this happened today. I’m going to uninstall and see if that solves it, but I’d like to know for sure if that’s my issue or if it’s something else. Any help is greatly appreciated!
