When opening an existing project there are very noticeable audio stutters when any major event occurs within the project (ie a new instrument is introduced, a chord track plays for the first time, etc). The audio in between these major events is silky smooth.
The glitches are a one time deal only. If I let the entire track play out the glitches will not occur any more. It is almost as though Cubase is not proactively looking ahead to pre-load significant data. I have raised the disk pre-load to 4 seconds but that did not make any difference. Should I raise this value to some really high value? It seems odd that my current setting of 4 seconds does not work on the first pass but will work on all subsequent passes. Any ideas or tweaks I could implement in the software or registry level?
So I know that Windows 10 is still in a state of flux. My purchase of Cubase was very recent and I already had Win10 installed on my workstation so I did not have the luxury of working on a lower OS. I fully understand that this could be a windows 10 issue and I am prepared to wait for patches etc to address Win10 issues. I am just trying to understand if there is something I can proactively do on my end help to push Cubase to perform on the first pass because after I get past the first playback of the track it is pretty much rock solid from that point forward.
Thanks for any help
