I’ve seen some topics pass by regarding this subject but I haven’t seen an official [ISSUE] yet. I made the step upgrading from C5 to C8. The promised performance enhancements are disappointing. It’s even so bad at this moment I can work really work on a project. I am forced to go back to C5, which luckily I kept installed. I don’t want to complain that much and I can imagine bugs on a new release. I just want to make sure mine and everybody else’s problems get picked up. Here’s a list of some of the issues I encountered.
- Increased VST ASIO load (15%)
- Freezing on loading plugins
- Render in place really slow
- Frequently freezes on opening older project created in C5
My system: Win7 64Bit, I7 3770 3.40Ghz, 16G RAM, RME HDSP 9632, Geforce GT620.
I updated all the drivers and tried multiple tips and tricks provided by Steinberg to optimize my system. No luck yet. I hope a new patch follows soon because I can’t wait to work (proper) with C8!
