I am working with friend on a project and he uses Cubase 5 and I use Cubase 8 Pro. I have noticed something weird, if I put audio files directly into channels and especially .rex files, the RAM usage is gradually going up, even though I use only 4 channels only with rex., that is the only channels in the project actually. I let them play without any insert or send effects and I notice the ram going up from 2.6 GB to 4.6 when Cubase 8 PRO 32 bit crashes.
I thought it can be a setting so I removed the auto detection of hit points, also tried disabling asio guard, trying different settings of asio guard, tried with removed multi processor support with no result at all, so I wrote to the support and one kindly helped me and gave me link to the old Cubase 5. After I opened the project there, it was all normal, the RAM didn’t go up even with the rest of the channels and vst fully loaded. I decided to save it and try it again, thinking it could be a bad saved project-no dice, the ram still goes up in my Cubase 8 PRO.
Step three was to test all other possible versions until mine, everything after Cubase 5 ( without any updates, the version I was given link to is 22.214.171.1242) does the weird RAM thing. Please please please test this and if there is a memory leak or something patch it with the next version.
Thank you in advance !
P.S. Here is a video of the problem in action!
