BUG in UAD Neve 88r? DAW Software

BUG in UAD Neve 88r?

Hi everyone!

Anyone else having the problem, that sometimes the Neve 88r on the UAD crashes (with a very loud earkilling noise and buzzing that cannot be stopped until you restart the sequenzer) when you enable the hicut?

I run Cubase 4 with the UAD Pci-e card on a Asus P5B Motherboard.

Thanxs for some ideas what it could be!

Sorry, I have been working with it since the first week it was released and haven't experienced this.

Pro Tools (Sometimes Cubase SX3), Asus K8V mobo, 4 UAD-1's on an ancient Magma chassis.

Honestly I did have an event of a massive noiseburst last month. I was using Samplitude v9.1.1. Not sure exactly what caused this, but it was the only time I've ever had something like that occur. The problem is that I had the UAD 88RS running as well as an older version of Nebula3. I don't recall exactly what move I made before the incident, but it was brutal and I'm still amazed that my BM6 tweeters are still alive. One thing I do know is that it's not reproduceable with the Neve 88 and after upgrading my Nebula version, it's not happened again.

That noise burst thing happens only when i'm running a plug load of 82% or higher - and only occassionaly. The vst instrument bar maxes out and i freak out grabbing my bluesky knob to turn it down. I have 4 UAD cards - so its not often im maxing out especially if i run plugs on files instead of as inserts.

I'm going to call UAD. I have a Tyan K8WE S2895 motherboard - with one PCI-E UAD card and 3 PCI UAD cards in my SBS expansion chassis. I'm wondering if the Min_GNT value needs to be adjusted in the UAD's settings.


PS - if i find anything out i'll report back.

i will try if it happens when i´m over a certain limit

(but it only happens (sometimes) with the 88r)
