i’m working on windows7 (64-bit) with cubase 5.5.1 32-bit… 6GB RAM… Cubase and Windows on C: Samsung HD103SJ and Audio Source on Disc D: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12
audio interface: rme multiface II, I’m using 512 or 1024 latency
I’m working on a huge project with nearly 200 audio tracks, no midi or VST instruments… everything is bounced to audio, 24-bit… i’m using a lot of plug-ins…
my problem: I get disc-glitches… audio won’t play smoothly…
do you think I can improve the situation by changing the hard disc set-up?
Changing my C: System (Cubase) Hard Disc to SSD would be good?! But I have to install everything new and I don’t have the time for it…
Changing D: (where I store my audio tracks and the project folders) to a faster Hard Disc?
Mmmmh, I guess the best try woould be to upgrade to cubase 64-bit?
Can I install another cubase version (let’s say cubase 6 64-bit) simultaneously on my system? (the cubase version that supports 64-bit is cubase 6 and 7, right?)
do you think I can add-install the 64 bit versions of some plug ins I’m using and cubase 5 (32bit) and cubase 6 (64bit) would work without compromises (of course, I don’t want to run both versions simultaneously;)
thanks for your help and recommondations.
