Has anyone else experienced this?
I am working with another composer who is using the latest Ableton Live software.
When I import his 44.1kHz/24-bit WAV files (all continuous) which then get converted in Cubase to 88.2kHz/32-bit, they cause more than double the disk activity on my audio drive when compared to past and test projects recorded in Cubase with the same 88.2kHz sample rate, track count, continues files and song length. I’ve gone over his export process and everything is “off” including the dither option. The only way around the issue when working with his files is to do a batch “detect silence” on all tracks so that unnecessary reads aren’t happening simultaneously (which is fine by me because it is easier to work visually that way). Any clue as to what may be happening? We are talking about 22 WAV files at 88.2kHz causing 45% disk activity on the audio drive when compared to projects where all audio was recorded in Cubase with 60 tracks causing 65% disk activity.
FYI - My comparisons do not have VST’s or plugins loaded. Audio drive is 0% fragmented. No errors reported in any scanning. Audio drive is a terra-byte drive with only 45% usage. Increasing sample pre-load setting does help but this is only masking the root cause.
