ASIO DRIVER is Digidesign Mbox2. Purchased Cubase Elements 7 in March this year worked fine. Took up offer of free upgrade to Elements 8.
Now have major problem in that with only one single audio track in a new project as soon as I hit record the VST average load and real time peak lights up. I record something simple like a single line on a piano and platback is completely distorted.
The ASIO driver and Digidesign box works fine with other software like CEP (and did with Cubase 7 but I cannot currently use Elements 8 as it stands.
Input latency: 5.011ms

Interestingly in performance monitoring it only uses about 3% CPU and about 25% of physical ram BUT the HDD (presumably swapfiles) Read/Writes id going absolutely ballistic which I think is causing the issue.
Has anyone seen this and can anyone help… It is doing my head in? As I said The version 7 worked fine with loads of midi tracks and audio tracks. Now I cant even hit record for one mono track of piano!!
