Under heavy stress, how evenly does Cubase distribute the load of all of your plugins? Kind of an odd question, but I do work exclusively with heavy synths and sample libraries. So, when you’ve pushed your computer to the absolute max, say, sessions that use 80-90%+ of your CPU, how gracefully did Cubase handle things?
I’ve actually been looking at trying Cubase for a long time, but my current project that I’m working on in Pro Tools 11 kind of tipped me over the edge as it’s failing to allocate resources properly, thinking that it’s maxed out and causing audible issues when really I’ve got another 70% of my CPU just hanging out and doing nothing. It’s a well known bug and now it’s in my way.
I’m at the point where I just need something that works and for a composer/producer like me, and many of you here, Cubase was probably a better fit to begin with. I just need to know I will have a DAW that can scale with my computer’s resources and not cut out before my computer does. I know that’s difficult to answer, but I’d appreciate any insight.
Thank you very much for your time.
