My CPU meter at idle in an empty project is jumpy and sporadic. In a normal project with several tracks and instruments, it is even more jumpy. I have tried just about everything in the world to no avail. I’m using a new computer running Windows 7. This issue bothers me because on my last setup, the CPU meter behaved as expected. Its as if something or some process is going on in the background. I have gone through many DAW tweaking guides and disabled everything possible. I have changed driver versions multiple times for my Fireface 400 and the issue prevails.
Does anyone have any ideas of what could be doing this or of any ideas as to things I can try? Has anyone else seen this before?
Thank you in advance.
