You spend $3,000 on a new workstation and the same CPU problems persist. I custom-built a new PC from the ground up to use with Cubase 7.0.6 64-bit. Check out the statistics of the new set-up below:
2x Intel Xeon E5 Processor(s)
32GB Quad-Channel RAM
128GB Samsung SSD
4TB Seagate Secondary Drive
4TB Hitachi Third Drive
My operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
My DAW is [obviously] the 64-bit version of Cubase 7.
Nearly all my plug-ins are 64-bit.
My sound-card is an Edirol FA-101 FireWire Audio Interface.
I open up a project that contains around 252 tracks (MIDI, Audio, Instrument, FX Channel, Group & Folder tracks). I realize this is a lot, but I also compose cinematic scores.
I still suffer from ASIO overloads! What’s going on here? I checked Steinberg’s optimizaition guidelines and I did everything the guide advised (ie.; disabled HyperThreading, C-States, Intel SpeedStep Technology, etc.). In addition, I have activated the Steinberg Audio Power Scheme and I have set the audio priority to “Boost.” Of course, I activated ASIO-Guard.
What can I do? Please help…
