I have had my copy for only a few days as well. I have pruned my large default template of all 32 bit plug-ins and moved many VI’s into a VE Pro project. VI’s that did not move were better left as part of the project template. With ASIO-Gaurd and multi-processing set to ON, I have not been able to get this project to use a buffer smaller then 512 KB. I had hoped to get the buffer down to 256 KB but it does not appear possible at this time.
Overall, I am happy with the update. I am not back from using other DAW as of yet but as I slim my projects to reflect a smaller amount of VIs, I am certain that the buffers will come down to a more manageable level. CS.
PS. I de-activated the VE Pro instances and my default large project is useable with a 256 KB buffer. Also, my signature does not reflect the fact that I have been using Cubase or it’s derivative names since v3.
