I have been using Softube Modular since 2016 without incident. I used it on an old outdated system (Windows 7) and DAW (Cubase 7).

Recently, I upgraded my computer. I am now running Windows 10 and Cubase 11 and have plenty of RAM and a fast CPU. I can run 40 instances of Omnisphere without a glitch.

The other day, I installed the latest modular version because I needed it to run the newer modules which didn't appear in the old version.

Today, starting up my DAW and loading Softube, it takes 30 seconds for the GUI to appear. Each task I perform inside the VST takes 30 to 60 seconds for it to complete.

It is absolutely impossible to work with it this way.

So I have 2 questions.

1. Is anyone else having this problem?

2. Can someone recommend a FREE DAW that I can download just to use with Softube Modular for the purpose of doing patch design? I'm not spending hundreds of dollars on a DAW just to do that one task.

Needless to say, this is extremely frustrating and annoying so anyone who can help me find a solution to this problem, it will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

First thing I would do with softube stuff is enable (if it is off) or disable open gl (if it is on) in the plugin and see if that makes a difference.
For sure on my Nuendo 11 Windows 10 PC I don't have that happen.

How do I know if it's on or off and then how do I enable or disable? I have no idea how to do this.

Okay, it was on, I turned it off, shut down my DAW, restarted, reloaded the plugin, and no difference.

I wrote to support. I am livid over this considering how wide spread it is (just did some research)

Did some research. Updated my graphics driver and that fixed it.
