Cpu & cubase 12

may be im not looking for answers but just to absolutely rant and this program somtimes.

Im on a project atm and the cpu is just stupidly spiking with not really enough stuff to make it do that. So then i start deleting instruments and inserts which are all the heavier users and cpu still stays the same… my creative spirit has just nosedived …
anyone else get these issues at all ?
