  1. Did you try with more than one project? That project could have gotten corrupt.
  2. Also, if you haven't done so, do a rescan of your VSTs.
  3. Try this: Start CbB with "Run as Administrator". If still not visible, do a Reset of VSTs.
  4. I'm sorry this happened to you, and we've all been there... But when was the last backup you made of the project? If you went more than an hour without backing up the project (and you made a ton of edits in that time) that's a hard lesson to learn. If you NEVER backed it up after having "spent the whole day" on the project, well, that's a much worse, but necessary, lesson to have to learn...
  5. Take a look at the Windows event viewer (Under "System") and see if it logs an error at that precise moment. https://www.howtogeek.com/123646/htg-explains-what-the-windows-event-viewer-is-and-how-you-can-use-it/ The only other thing I can think of is software running in the background (anti-virus, for example) that is interrupting one of your DAW processes. You might try disabling all BG apps one at a time and see if that ID's the culprit.
  6. Well, since Sonitus plugins as VST were never bundled with Sonar/CbB, either what you have are not VST, or you acquired the VST version at some point and just don't remember. In the early 2000s, I purchased the Sonitus VST bundle from a 3rd party company called Ultrafunk for $300... only to see them acquired by Cakewalk a year later and the FX freely bundled (in DX format ) with Sonar shortly afterward. I ended up using the DX version (and removing the VSTs off my system forever). I still mourn that $300 to this day...
  7. If it's only crashing with bigger projects, that would suggest problems with certain plugins rather than system files (in which case you'd likely have crashes on every project). Try a RESET and RESCAN of your VSTs. (Make sure you do BOTH. Many users inexplicably bypass the RESET and only do a RESCAN when it's just as often the former that fixes the issue).
  8. Sorry, I would, but don't have the TH-U/TH3 plugin. And just to be clear, you did try starting Sonar with "Run as Administrator"? (It's not the same thing as "Administrator privileges" or belonging to the Administrators group, which actually has restricted access).
  9. Are you running on Windows 10? Try starting CbB with "Run as Administrator" and see what happens.
  10. I have ESET on my main PC, but not on my DAW. I don't recommend having a real-time antivirus on your DAW. Pause the real-time protection and see if you're still getting the dropouts. If so, try running the free utility DPC Latency Checker to identify the culprit: https://www.thesycon.de/eng/latency_check.shtml
  11. That utility is likely in your startup folder. Unless you need constant access to your display settings, best to just disable it in startup, then it won't conflict with Cakewalk. If you need occasional access to the utility, then just find the application and create a shortcut on your taskbar or desktop.
  12. Bottom line, if you need to record 4 channels simultaneously and be able to mix them as discrete channels, you'll need an interface with 4+ ins/outs. Alternatively, you can buy a small mixer (with at least 4 inputs) and feed the stereo outs into your interface, but of course you won't be able to mix the separate channels.
  13. We're in the same club. I've been very happy with my two FW interfaces (TC Electronic and Steinberg)... In fact I've never even owned a USB interface, having moved from PCI (my last was an Echo Gina 3G) to Firewire. Once I got the right PCIe FW add-on card, it truly has been plug and play -- no jumping through hoops or any tweaks necessary for rock solid performance. My next upgrade will be to Thunderbolt, probably in 2-3 years... Until then, I'll be chugging along worry-free with my "outdated" Firewire units!
  14. Trying to embrace the new on an "old Win 7" PC is perhaps pushing your luck a bit too far.... I think it's fair to say that most users are seeing better performance and stability with CWbB over Sonar Plat when running on Win 10 (or even Win 8.1).
  15. Could be one of any number of things... The reboot suggests overheating or maybe malware. I see you have a Studio Cat-built system. I suggest you give Jim Roseberry a call... Maybe he can remote in and figure out what the problem is.
