Pianfully Sluggish GUI

I know this has been a complaint by many CB users and I hope Steinberg will fix it.
In Cubase 8, 8.5 and 9 the lag when zooming, editing, clicking in the background, etc is SO painfully slow compared to every other DAW, especially when there are a lot of audio files in the session.
This is not only a MAC issue. I’ve tested on Windows 10 and it’s the same mess.

I imported the same amount of audio files into Digital Performer, Logic, Pro Tools and Studio One 3 and they all respond smoothly with hardly any Lag.

It’s so frustrating, especially when you have to work fast tom meet a deadline.

Am I beating a dead horse with this post?
Hopefully not.

There is a full on topic going on at the moment and you are not alone.

Please do share your info and issues you are experiencing so that Steinberg can tackle this annoying GUI nuisance.

Same issue here! I thought I was alone. I am also having really slow load and saves. Getts worse with every upgrade.

I’m on PC though… and I have C9. Client waiting :frowning:

The link I provided is a thread for Mac. You should definitely start a PC GUI issue thread.
I read that this is one of Steinbergs priorities and are looking into it, hopefully for both Mac and Pc.
