+1 I can only concur. Cubase 7 and Steinberg has done great work!
I really like Cubase 7, works very great over here even in use of large project.
Asio guard and all other features work fine over here too include VST Connect.
Sure all can always improve and work even better but no big issues…
I have been around a long time on forums to often notice it comes down 9 of 10 to two things:
User has made some horrible system tweaks they though was all good on XP that is actually totally wrong on Windows 7 and Windows 8 system.
Often these stupid and wrong advice found over the Internet sites. They give you all horrible advice that they actually cause problems instead of solve anything. Even worse, some hardware manufactures copy this horrible wrong tweaks that they actually don’t know a s-hit about causing even more problem and confusion for the end users.
Features functionality has change from previously version or work differently what the user expected.
I’m not saying you have done something wrong with your system. You’re issues my be real and valid.
But you should ask yourself why isn’t it working for you when it obviously work for so many others?
Have I done XP tweaks on Windows 7 / 8 on my system that shouldn’t done?
Here is some example go thru that apply to Windows 7 and Windows 8 and it works for all others too that have problems or have no problems with their system. Your system can actually work even better if you set it up right.
1. Don’t Disable AERO make it look like Windows 95. AERO need to be ON on Windows 7 and Windows 8! Use the latest Drivers from you vendors NVIDIA
2. Set the processor scheduler to “background task” is wrong Setting on Windows 7 and 8. IT SHALL BE SET to PROGRAM!
ASIO is not a background task. On Windows XP another story.
Note* I’m amazed that even Steinberg at page 24 in Operation manual advice some people to set to “background” only (on a single- CPU system), though meaning XP old systems. They should take it away completely or add to make it clear its only for users on Windows XP only, not on Windows 7 or 8. Windows 7 and 8 work and are complete different system.
It should be set to PROGRAM not BACKGROUND on Windows 7 and Windows 8.
3. It can be a good idea on some system to disable “core-parking” in Windows 7 and 8. This is advance operation true reg-edit so if you have no experience you can mess up your system pretty bad and completely.
Come back and tell me if you still have problems!
