I’ve run into some issues regarding Cubase 9.5 + Windows Defender (Windows 10)
Somehow Windows Defender frequently turns Cubase into a suttery mess, even the UI is lagging and stutterging during playback.
Each time this happens the Task Manager tells me that Windows Defender currently uses around 20% CPU usage and when I turn off “realtime protection” it’s all smooth again.
I recently upgraded from Cubase 8.0 to 9.5 and never had this issue with 8.0, but of course a windows update could have also caused this.
I tried adding everything DAW related to the Windows Defender exception settings, including all my sample library folders, VST folders, Native Instrument Installation/content folders, Cubase folders etc. but it still happens.
Turning on and off realtime protection each time when using Cubase is a bit frustrating
Do you guys have any clue how to avoid this?
