I’m posting to request helps or tips or possibly to point out a prob w/ Cubase 6.
I have a ten track project that I start by importing a general midi file. In cubase 5.5, 10 instances of halion one are loaded ( 1 per sound). In a nutshell, in C5.5, the project plays perfectly, with ASIO meter barely topping 20-25%. In C6, the project is unplayable.
Q6600 Quad / 4gb ram/ Win 764 bit/ presonus firepod, 256 buffer setting. C5.5/32 bit vs C6 32 bit. The only difference is C5.5 v C6. Note that there are no external effects/etc – just the raw midi file connected to Halion One (C5.5) or Halion Sonic SE (C6)
Perfect playback, Audio Priority: Boost, Multi Processing, Disable CPU energy saving. 10x instances Halion One
Crackling out of control, ASIO meter all over the place, Audio Boost, Multi Processing, Steinberg power profile, 1X instance of Halion Sonic SE(10 channels)
Note that I’ve tried all combos of settings in C6 – Audio boost normal/high; Multi Processing enabled/disabled/Steinberg power prof enabled/disabled, etc. Even tried disabling all effects in Halion Sonic, etc.
Also system audio optimized – Aero disabled/Processor Scheduling set to background, all unnecessary services disabled etc. I’d really like to get C6 working w/ a simple Midi project-- as noted the only difference is between the Cubase versions and the internal instrument used (Halion One vs Sonic/etc). No external effects/etc. Just that in C6 playback is impossible. Thanks for any help!
