CPU overload occurred during the export


My computer is a i7 5960X @ 4.4 GHz with 96 GB of RAM DDR4 Quad-channel and SSD SATA-3 disk, USB RME Fireface UCX. Everything runs lightning fast, BUT I get this absurd error message when mixing down a stupid 3 tracks song at 96 KHz/32 bits WAV format with Cubase 8.5.20 and Windows 10 Pro Anniversary Edition, 64 bit.

I also notice glitches during playback, with zero ASIO driver errors.

I use ASIO buffer guard, Priority Boost and Steinberg Audio Power management plan.

It must be a bug.


When did the problem start? What plugins are you using in the project and how many instances of each? How long is the export? Are you running any anti-virus on the system?
