I have a strange issue and am trying to narrow it down to what it is. I have a 12core mac pro with 32gb of Ram and a Raydat card. Now i had a massive setup file with loads of vst etc etc and the buffer set to 1024 it does ok but decided to re do the setup file a different way (more efficient)
I started this by adding only about 5 vst instruments (Kontakt 5, Halion 5, Addictive drums, Supperior drummer and another ) Everything updated to latest updates etc etc. Now if i set all these instruments going at a buffer size of 256 it starts to spike and crackle etc.
Surely this shouldn’t be that bad as its nothing particularly stressful on the system. I have updated all hardware aswell (Raydat card included).
The only thing I haven’t updated is Cubase. I am on cubase 7.0.4 as the 0.5 update actually made it alot worse.
I am also running on mountain lion aswell.
can anyone help at all?
