Everything was working perfectly, then I had to take my laptop out of the house for a day, when I set everything up again, the VST perf. Meter was maxing out, and there was visual and audio lagging. I tried reinstalling the drivers and using a separate hdd for my project folder.
Cubase 5 32b
The meter maxes out as soon as i load my project, regardless of whether or not I play it back.
I don’t think its a problem with the interface, it maxes out even without the interface connected.
