Alright i took a look at the task manager, and the 4 graphs (i think they are the different cores) were raised up pretty evenly, but when i let the song run the CPU level was anywhere between 30 and 60, and the song was playing delayed and choppy. The cubase application wasnt using more than 50 percent.
Then occasionally the CPU would move up into the 70 -80 range and it would play smoothly… i’m assuming thats what i want, is there any way to make sure the computer is using than much processing?
Also, yes I am filling it with plug-ins, and I certainty can get by with an fx channel, do you always do that? I thought it would be better to have compressors and x tweaked slightly differently for each sound though - but i guess your telling me it’s common to lump them all together?
And i’m also processing the percussion samples live, I know i could export all those and re-load them. But i’m still curious why it overloads. I thought the computer would be able to handle more, in case im doing more demanding projects in the future or simply for the convenience.
(and by the way i tried the buffer size at the minimum of 512 and it was much slower and more cut up)
