Hello fellow composers,
Music has always been the driving force of my life. I’ve been a cubase user for awhile now, had a great experience up until version 8.5 on the Mac Pro. The audio engine is fine, but have issues with the GUI being very sluggish, slow and under performing. This includes even a song with 2 tracks or more. When I pick up cubase 8.5 as of late, I find myself being frustrated with how slow the process is and am at the point I walk away from writing - thats un-exceptable for me. Some of the new VSTS are so slow patch switching, the zoom in and out scrolling, all very slow compared to 7.0 or 7.5. I’ve tried other software and the result has been lighting fast to my experience in cubase 8.5. Any fix for something like this?
On my mac pro I don’t have any other issues and honestly am now on the fence with possibly reverting back to cubase 7.5. The previous version of the software was perfect, and now I find myself losing interest in composing having to deal with such a slow composing process, which I cant have! I really just want to get back to enjoying writing, so this isn’t a post meant to offend anyone. I truly just want to get back to a point of steady production again.
My question is, has anyone else experienced this dlemma? If so, what version of cubase is fast and stable, I don’t need bells and whistles of any software at the cost of performance for OS X?
Id really like to enjoy Cubase Pro, but its been a hardship for me rather then a tool I can rely on from a production standpoint.
Thanks for the feedback,
