is there any noticeable perfomance increase in 9.5 compared to the last update in Cubase?
I´m asking because I´m having a hard time with my Xeon setup and it doesn´t seem to come to an end.
Especially when using cpu demanding plugins like those from Zynaptiq or Izotope.
My system is a little bit better, but I can’t really say I notice it or it’s massive. Some GUI updates seem to happen in a different order which means I can edit quicker while the pending GUI updates are queued somehow and then catch up later. It does speed up my workflow.
No performance increase here, but I’m hoping that’s coming. I still need to use VE Pro in order for Cubase to handle as many CPU-heavy plugins as Studio One, Pro Tools, and Reaper can - those all trounce Cubase with their CPU efficiency on my computer, especially Reaper.
Thanks for letting me know. For the last 7 years or so I have bought every update to Cubase only to play with it for a weekend or so, then back to Reaper. I think Cubase has a lot of nice features, and particularly version 9 finally giving the option of a single screen coherent interface. Then again a test project gives me crackles, peaking above max cpu, while Reaper only uses about 25% for identical use of tracks, plugins etc.
So sad they didn’t fix this issue, probably related to the way real time audio is used.
Thanks, it’s always interesting to be able to compare some real-world machine capabilities. With my Apollo set to the same buffer size and with ASIOGuard on normal/middle position, my average performance load is hovering around 25% with some drifts occasionally up to about 30% on my MacBook Pro. Nowhere near yours, which looks like barely 10%, but still extremely usable (and very portable)
