A couples of months ago I found out about Nahimi Service. This thing is a nightmare and Cubase performance goes down the tubes. Crackles and serious lost of performance.
Back then I solved the issue and everything was fine.
Recently I started having the same issues, and the Peak meter was all up there. Even pushing latency didn’t solved it.
The damn thing was back! In fact, it was A-Volute , its little brother.
I used this and Cubase is running at 32ms of latency flawlessly:
Watch out these two services in case you are having issues!
I hope this may help someone.
