I’m interested in doing an upgrade to my workstation and I’m curiously looking at a 1950x, but so far I’m unable to find much relevant information about this CPU and Cubase.
I’d like to know if there is anyone out there that has seen a stable system running this processor with Cubase 9.
Now I know that at the moment there’s a huge debate online about number of cores, threads, realtime performance in audio and buffer size and whatnot, but that’s exactly what I’m trying to avoid. I just like to know about people that used it in a studio environment and how it behaves in a rather general way with Cubase. I don’t care about latency issues, as I usually do not drop below 128 samples buffer size. I just don’t want there to be any major incompatibilities that would break workflow during arranging, recording and mixing. My major plugins are Kontakt and VEP. I don’t really care about the rest.
At the moment I’m using an Intel 5820K as my CPU with Windows 10 and sometimes it does suffer from audio dropouts, unless I set Cubase to Realtime performance in task manager, in witch case it works without any issues.
I want to do this upgrade because I also edit 4k footage and Premiere and Resolve do benefit hugely from 32 threads. I’d just like to know if this is a SOUND investment (pun intended) audio-wise, since audio production is my main activity.
