Yes, it’s another post about this.
Issue: Mac GUI is still slow and jerky in many ways.
- Load up a project of decent size and scroll horizontally through the mixer: Slow and jerky.
- Load up a project of decent size and scroll up and down in the project window: It’s jerky.
- Open up the MIDI piano roll editor in a session with high CPU. It will often cause dropouts and stuttering with the sound during playback.
There are others here and there that I can’t recall at the moment. Others can feel free to add on here: Please keep this thread ONLY about Mac GUI issues, nothing else.
We know very well that Mac GUI is still a problem even though parts of been improved (thank you for those). But every Windows machine I’ve tried Cubase on is smooth and flies crisply with the GUI, while every Mac I’ve tried it on has issues (including two of my own: a trashcan Mac Pro and MacBook Pro). I know a few people here don’t have this problem on their Mac, for some unknown reason. But many people clearly still experience it, and we know factually that Steinberg is very well aware of the issue. Hopefully they are continuing to make it an absolute priority to make it as smooth and fast as other DAWs on Mac, because it’s far behind overall, still. I’m starting to eye others again, and this issue is the main reason.
