I wonder if someone can explain the audio performance meter a bit further beyond the manual, as it doesn’t appear to reflect the reality I’m seeing:
In a particular project I have running, the average load meter is edging towards the red end of the meter, indicating overload.
The real time peak when running the playback hovers a bit below halfway, indicating it’s far from overload.
Shouldn’t these two meters be fairly similar, or are they measuring two completely different things?
Also, when I playback the project that is when my CPU usage is at its highest according to my Windows 10 Task Manager, but it is still only showing CPU usage total of around 30% and Cubase is about 27%/30% of this. This is far from maxed out, but the manual says the Average load meter “Shows how much of the available CPU power is used for audio processing.” It doesn’t seem to do that at all.
Am I missing something?
