This is a question for the SB development team I guess.
But it would be really good to have some clear info on what we as users can expect GUI performance wise on the Mac in future releases.
I have been on the Mac for the last few years, which I vastly prefer as a platform in general.
However, Cubase and Nuendo’s graphical performance has been very disappointing, and tests with other DAW’s have shown this to be mainly a coding issue.
9.5 improved a bit, but on larger templates with higher cpu loads (i.e 300-400+tracks and 50%+ cpu use) the interface still gets very sluggish on the Mac.
On the same machine, running Windows 10 on Bootcamp, C9.5 is significantly faster and smoother.
I appreciate SB is trying to improve the GUI performance on the Mac, but what I’d really like to know is what kind of performance increases we can realistically expect; especially as in the coming months I have to decide whether to invest in a new iMac Pro or stay on the PC.
Is the Mac version ever going to be on a par with the PC on a similar spec machine, or is this a fantasty?
