Switched from pc to mac and been searching this forum for an answers that I didn’t find but hopping you can clear this for me.
Is there some guidelines to tweak osx for work with audio and cubase like on pc?
I mean like Switch off all screenshots, sleeps, automatic check update, etc. of all applications.
Some more tweak maybe?
Since I new on mac only few month I simply don’t know everything that is running in the background.
The reason I’m asking for this is cause I started a very small project.
VSTi’s FM8,Nepheton and Lush101.
4-6 audio channels and maybe 12-15 vst plugins that was perfectly working on my pc core2duo.
My CPU meter is around 50% and jumping like crazy, latency 256 sample.
Also there a different between cubase meter and lion meter where on cubase it 10-15 percent more.
Also at some point I just picked a plugin ,placed it on all insert slots of a channel and started to duplicated the channel until I reached 80% on cubase meter…but on lion meter I saw 326% and my fan started to spin like crazy.
I’m working on MacBook Pro late 2011 (i7,4gb ram,500gb - 5400rpm) , osx lion, cubase 6.5.3.
Thank you very much in advance.
