I noticed that if I inserted a step mod into a program with the Sync mode set to “Tempo+Beat” that the audio-processing load in Cubase increased with the bar number.
For example, if my transport is playing at bar 9, my audio-processing load meter is normal looking. If I jump to bar 800, it increases a good bit. If I jump to bar 1700 it is almost maxed out.
I tested this locally with a HALion 6 in Cubase 9.5 and I tested this with a HALion 6 loaded in a VE Pro 6 instance on another machine. In VE Pro 6, you can see the CPU usage increasing with the bar number count.
After a series of tests, I narrowed it down to the step mod sync mode set to “Tempo-Beat”
Any one else run into this?
Looks a lot like a bug.
