So this is strange, in Cubase 8.5 whenever the main project scroll bar/cursor is moving (the white/black line that scrolls as your project plays, whatever it’s called) I get insane amounts of slowdown. The FPS drop dramatically while the rest of Windows runs all the same. As soon as the scroll cursor moves offscreen everything gets back normal, my meters go back to full framerate and everything looks great.
I am on Windows 10, dual monitor setup at 2560x1440, Nvidia GTX 750ti.
Very important to note that Cubase 8.0.3 does NOT hava this issue.
By FPS I mean the window refresh rate. Everything around Cubase runs as it should, it’s just Cubase that gets very slow.
