Performance Spikes!

Hi all,

I am currently struggling to record anything, or listen to my project smoothly. I am running Cubase 8.5 on Yosemite - i7 with 32GB ram.
I have about 16 channels, and the performance using is generally about 1/3, as soon as I want to playback or record it would randomly spike up and cause crackling or pausing.

I’m not even sure where to start to be honest - any help would be very very helpful!


Try to increase Buffer Size.
