After the upgrade I loaded a current project and all of my “Snap-Crackle-Pop” CPU /latency problems were gone! It is very heavy with VSTs/MIDI and I watched as the CPU gauge never hit 25 percent!
So whatever optimizations were done really helped my Quad-Core Pentium-D Processor! Thank you Steinberg!
I played with the PadShop Synth, and I really like the sounds I’m hearing. Very cool. I haven’t had time to explore the other features but so far it’s a great improvement and well worth the $49
