Here is my monthly update regarding my misadventures trying to use Cubase 10.5.20.
It doesn’t work. I have tried all the settings on or off, etc. This version of Cubase causes the CPU meter to grow bigger and bigger, and then spikes occur that stop playback. Lot of fun. I’ve tried it with my Apollo Twin Duo, my Focusrite Scarlett, even two inexpensive Behringer travel interfaces. Even using the built in audio on my MacBook Pro.
However, Cubase 10.0.60 works perfectly and is what I use daily for my recording & mixing production work. No spikes, and I can actually finish my work and (cough) get paid without having to tell people that “their project is late because I’m having some issues with my software”.
I’m sure when Steinberg releases Cubase 10.5.30 orr 40, 50, 60, etc. I will try again and see if I get different results.
