I’m running Cubase 6.5 now, upgraded from Cubase 4, and was wondering if anyone else has had any problems with overloaded CPU usage when running a number of Waves Plugins? I was working on a project with approx 20-30 Waves plugins running and the CPU was through the roof! Even with the Buffer size increased. I know in Pro Tools you can assign Processors to run pro tools, i.e. assign 3 processors to run pro tools and 1 processor to run rest of computer on my quad core iMac. Is there a similar option in Cubase 6.5?
Also, am I right in thinking that you can only use a maximum of 4G RAM when running Cubase in 32-bit mode? to access any more RAM you need to run it in 64-bit mode? I have 12G of RAM and feel it maybe useless to me if this is the case, as all of my Waves plugins can only run in 32-bit mode.
Basically, what can I do or what settings can I select to make Cubase run seemlessly? I know for a fact my computer is more than adequate for the job! (see below for computer specs).
