How to use more than 1/3 of available CPU power?

Hi there,

How can i use more than 1/3 of available CPU power?

Asking bc Cubase is the only program in Windows that shows it hits max performance, when my CPU still has 60% free/available

Because Asio Load is unequal to CPU Load in the task manager. The Asio Load in Cubase measures the whole system performance an not just the cache load of your processor.

In order to use more of your CPU you either have to use a much higher buffer or use ASIO Guard

Or run some instruments in their own host connected via virtual midi ports to Cubase.
Or spread the load by using more tracks with fewer plugins. For example instead of loading the Master bus with a lot of heavy plugins, use a Group for some of them.
