whenever I use East West pianos in cubase 5 after a few minutes or when I go to record Im getting the following error message " A serious problem has occurred: please try to save your project under another name and then restart Cubase5.exe. If this problem persists please contact Steinberg Technical Support with a description of what you do to create this problem, and the created file c:/program files (86)/steinberg/cubase5/cubase5.LOG. Click OK to be informed about firther occurances of serous problems, or cancel to suppress these warnings in case of cascading warnings" then when I click anything cubase 5 will completly crash I cant record East West pianos at all now its becoming a nightmare.

I usually do what James does, I use Google to search the problem. Sometimes you learn there is not an immediate solution but at least you know that others have the same exact issue and that gives some consolation.

I also will post in the appropriate forum as well.

Post back when the solution is found and perhaps others will benefit from this.

Hey I contacted steinberg they got back to me saying "Dear Mr. Wilson,
Did you install the latest updates of all your software?
The following Knowledge Base Article shows how vst plugins are stored:
https://www.steinberg.net/en/support/kno...red-on-windows/

In any case you should optimize your system for DAW usage.

Optimizing Windows for DAWs

1. Please examine your system and make sure that all device drivers of the system are up to date. This involves the drivers of the audio hardware as well as the chipset drivers and the display card drivers. Also Windows XP/Vista should be up to date (Service Packs and updates/hot fixes). You should avoid using dedicated mouse and keyboard drivers, instead use the drivers provided by Windows!

2. Systems with shared memory display setups are not advisable. They often can be found on mobile systems (laptops). It is advisable to throttle or deactivate hardware acceleration for the display card (Display Settings--> troubleshooting). Also check the control panel of your display card driver and deactivate any option that could be a strain to your system.

3. The Windows option "Adjust for best performance": In the Control Panel -> System -> Advanced system settings -> Performance Settings, you can find the option „Adjust for best performance“. This option should be checked.

4. Audio interface related settings:

Onboard Soundcards: If your mainboards provides an onboard soundcard it should be configured to be the standard playback device in the Windows Sound and Audio Settings. Thus, the Windows system sound will be played back by the onboard device without affecting the audio signal of your audio interface or soundcard. However, if playback issues occur it can also be advisable to deactivate the onboard device in the BIOS of your system. Onboard soundcards cannot be recommended for the usage with our products since they do not allow working with low latencies due to missing ASIO drivers. Furthermore, most onboard soundchips are equipped with substandard AD/DA converters and only offer low signal quality (high noise level, non-linear frequency response, bad electrostatic shield).
Latency/Buffer Setting: If you experience audio drop-outs or crackles take a look at the "ASIO" part of the VST Performance Window (Devices menu). It indicates how much resources are left to calculate the audio data and forward it to the audio driver in time. If the latency is very low (which is corresponding to a very small buffer size) time might be too short for proper signal processing. Depending on the system, the audio interface and the running project, it might make sense to increase the latency/buffer setting. Please refer to the manual of the corresponding audio interface for details. Updating the audio driver might also improve the overall system performance and allow using latencies which weren't usable before. Generally, internal audio cards using the PCI or PCIe bus are able to provide lower latencies than external USB or Firewire based audio interfaces.

5. Processor scheduling: It might make sense to set the processor scheduling to "Background services":

Go to Windows Start menu, select "Control Panels"
There, start "System"
Windows XP: select the tab "Advanced"
Windows Vista: click on "Advanced system properties" to open "System Properties" and select the tab "Advanced"
Click on "Settings" in the section "Performance"
In the window "Performance Options" select the tab "Advanced"
There you find the "Processor scheduling" options, set it to "Background services"

Especially Windows XP users should apply these settings.

6. Any energy saving options should be deactivated or set to "none". The system should be configured for continues operations. If this is not done, hard disks will throttle in speed or toggle off after a while and some processors will down clock and slow down. Because of this, our products could stop functioning correctly.

7. Programs that are running in background can cause issues while working with our products or even already during installation. These programs are mostly configured to automatically start when Windows boots up, e.g. virus scanners, security software, firewalls, printer and media software. It is advisable to deactivate these programs and slim out your auto start. You can mostly configure this through the settings of the program itself or you must manually deactivate them through typing "msconfig" (without the "") via Start -> Run. A freeware tool that could help you organizing your auto start would be “Startup Control Panel” which can be found on www.mlin.net.

8. Also, current PC systems feature speed stepping technologies (Intel: EIST, AMD: Cool ‘n’ Quiet) that automatically adjust the CPU clock depending on the overall system strain. If drop outs occur during playback, it might make sense to disable this feature in the BIOS settings of your motherboard and see whether this improves the performance.

9. Last but not least, please keep in mind that we do not recommend using Intel’s Hyper-Threading technology on multicore systems like the Intel i7 processor or older Extreme Edition and Xeon CPUs by Intel as Hyper-Threading can also have a negative side-effect on the performance. Again, disable it in the BIOS if you encounter any performance issues. For details on Hyper-Threading please have a look at this article.
"

Ive done all of this and im still getting these error messages in cubase when using east west pianos
I contacted east west and they said that "the Asio4All.exe emulation of an ASIO driver which not a system that works. We specify in the system requirements a sound card with ASIO drivers. So upgrading both software and hardware will absolute help solving any issues!"

Will this resolve the problem and is the asio4all driver causing this ive never had a problem with asio4all before and it always works well with all my other vti instruments

To clarify, did you try updating Cubase to the latest version?

Also, how about using a different programme to 'host' the EastWest software piano? If it's a standard VST, the lightweight 'VST Host' should be fine.

Reading that incredible list of issues tells me why God created the Mac. smile

But to try to be useful, I read that list of issues as performance related. Things that would cause clicks and pops and the like. It sounded from your description that you are running into a bug in EWQL or Cubase 5 that causes some sort of more or less fatal incompatibility error condition to occur, rather than a performance issue. Have you discussed the problem on the EWQL Forum? That is likely where you will find other users that either can or can't make EWQL Pianos work with Cubase 5.

So far, doing this hasn't bee sufficient to completely disable all power saving features of my disk drive, and as has been mentioned elsewhere recently, I had to use a 3rd party utility to configure the disk drive: Drive Power Manager
I consider this to be a Windows bug, really.

Caution: disabling speed-step in the BIOS may lock the CPU frequency on a lower than maximum speed. It does on my laptop, so I can't do this.

What version of Windows are you running? Sometimes there can be issues with plugins if you are running 64 bit plugins with 32 bit operating systems, or vice-versa.

haha yea the devil must have made Windows :-D and with mac you dont get flipping viruses haha. I know its pretty much an issue with cubase 5 now, as Ive run east west pianos in ableton live 8 and it work flawlessly, I rang up a shop who deals in music software and musical instruments and they advised that cubase 5 is the issue and that cubase 5 is not made for windows 7 he also said that there is alot of issues with cubase 5 in windows 7, and that I should upgrade to Cubase 6 which would resolve the issue.

Well, perhaps you could install the trial version of Cubase 6 to see if it does indeed resolve the issues in Windows 7?
