Over the years it’s generally been discouraged by Steinberg and Native Instruments to have Cubase’s Multi-Processing support AND Kontakt’s Multi-Processor utilization both enabled at the same time, and I’m fairly sure I’ve had problems when trying that in the past.
I’ve always just assumed that you’d NEVER want to enable both, so I only ever had MP enabled in Cubase and not in Kontakt.
But for years I’ve been suffering constant Cubase ASIO meter peaks and audio dropouts from large Kontakt patches or Kontakt patches with complex scripting.
I tried this scenario again of enabling Multi-Proc in Cubase and Kontakt, and lo and behold, a lot of session drop-outs disappeared. They’re not all gone, but it’s much better.
Anyone (Steinberg or otherwise) know why this might have made such a big difference?
