a few month ago, I bought a new pc.
a lot of power and just a very good machine.
it’s been running great and it’s very fast.
my current cubase project is a big one though, so the pc is struggling to keep up and the cpu meter in cubase, is pretty much maxed out.
to try and find a solution that would improve my cpu in cubase, I started to look for tips and settings that supposedly would give me that.
tried a bunch of things and I ended up going too deep and my pc started to crash a lot.
had to take it back to the shop yesterday, to clear the c drive and reinstall windows.
the shop owner is a friend who’s been messing with computers, ever since the early days, so he knows what he’s doing.
he runs a business, where he builds, repairs and sells computers.
i described the problem for him, about cubase needing more cpu and so on.
he said that it’s best to have all installations on a separate drive and only windows on the c drive.
if you have cubase (or any other programs) installed on c, it would be competing with windows for resources and power.
and windows will always have first priority on a pc.
so he suggested that I should install cubase on a different drive.
I’ve asked about this in other places, but before I go ahead and install cubase and a bunch of other programs and plugins, I’d like to know your opinions about this.
ps! I’ll need to install cubase 11 pro, before I install the latest update, right?
or can I install only the update?
