Hey guys, recently upgraded my computer from XP to Windows 7, and I upgraded from cubase sx 2.0 to cubase 6. I’m running a very old pc and I know that this was probably a massive jump for my system, but I can’t get any lower than 1024 on my sound card when I’m running 2 tracks of VST plugins. One is EZ drummer and 1 is a VST amp simulation.
I already know that my Pc has limitations, but I was running 30 tracks with multiple plugins and EQ (all audio) at very low latency before on my system, with no issues whatsoever. Since the switch I haven’t tried recording just audio yet, but was shocked that with 2 to 3 tracks of VST I’m crashing the sound card.
My sound card is the RME multiface hdsp pci card with FireWire. My driver says that it is up to date, but I accidentally downloaded multiple versions of the RME driver. I don’t know how to verify if I’m running the correct one, but when I tried to reinstall the updated driver from the site, Windows tells me that I have the correct one.
If I’m doomed to run at 1024 because of how old my systems is, that is what it is, but I’m trying to figure out if I’m missing something.
I am running the 32bit on a pentium 4 windows 7 3GB ram
Thanks in advance, I have seen a lot of posts that have helped me to refine my settings, but I’m still stuck at 1024. Please let me know if this is normal. This is my first attempt at recording with VST instruments. I am used to just recording my band. 12 inputs, set at a very low buffer rate (128) and then overdubs. Never any issues.
My main concern is when I record my band, the drummer has a problem with latency. I will try to record 10 tracks of audio with no VST at a low buffer rate to see what happens as well.
