I’ve been experiencing this for so long that now I’m used to it. However I’d like to know if I’m the only one having this problem.
Most of the time my ASIO meter within Cubase reaches its limit WAY before my CPU. For example I can get a big project with the ASIO meter maxed out, but the WIndows task manager only shows 40 or 50% of CPU used.
I have a I7 920 as CPU and my sound card is RME HDSP 9632. If I increase the latency it’s better but still there is a huge gap between the ASIO meter within cubase and the CPU consumption in Windows task manager.
Why is it Cubase can’t use more CPU power ? I’m even wondering if it makes any sense upgrading the CPU in the future if Cubase doesn’t take full advantage of it
Anyone else experiencing this behaviour ?
I’m on Windows 64bits and I use Cubase 5.5.3 32 bit.
