Hi, Steinberg and others.
Now I’ve been using Cubase 6 pretty extensively and plain love it. The lanes-system if excellent + are the automation workflow enhancements. And many others too… Yeah.
BUT: When I “use” the projects longer and longer, all editing operations significantly slow down. I mean, first of all, it takes pretty long time to save it (only ~5 seconds but I hate it!). But that’s not THE annoying feature.
It’s that when I select, say, 3 events and adjust their volume by clicking and dragging the event volume handles at the events’ upper edge up ow down, it takes some 8 to 10 second before anything happens!
If the editing is done during playback, it crackles the output sound, like C6 were playing solo some tracks one after and other, pretty fast changing them. And the playback might stop for a second and all that.
It’s like I were using an old sucky PC, but I’m not - believe me. Actually I DID experiense something like this also in C5 but not at this extent.
When you adjust the volume, the cursor naturally changes to up/down arrows, but it stays like that all the time that C6 is “processing” (when the mouse button is released) that tiny little event volume change! And all that time (8-10 seconds) you can’t do nothing; not to stop playback, not to right-click or anything. It just seems stuck changing those volumes.
AND it behaves the same when playback is NOT running. That way I try to edit all the time.
This “feature” has really become a big drag for me. It slows you down considerably + it also makes erratic changes to the event volume that way. NEVER this happens when I create a new project and it becomes big - this only emerges during time - even if I only do basic aditing and not importing any new files.
I HAVE tried out the following:
- Rebooting my PC
- Removing unused files and emptying thrash
- Dancing around my PC seven whole circles counter-clockwise direction and shouting “Yippee” all the time
But NOTHING helps!
Any similar experiences?
