My meters seem slow. They peak a few milliseconds after the event. Also the peaks seem weird. On a 808 drum kit the snare peaks high, but the kick drum hardly shows.
I was away from Cubase since Cubase 7. But I wasn’t happy with Ableton Live, so I wanted to return to Cubase. I installed Cubase 7 on Yosemite with the Yosemite installer. It worked for 80%. I decided to upgrade to Cubase Pro 8. Cubase 8 was not feeling right. Tabs were off, windows didn’t popup correctly. So I cleaned all configuration folders and rebooted. This helped. Everything is ok, except the meters.
