I only recently reached the limitations of having only 4gb of RAM on my laptop, so I purchased two more sticks and doubled it. At the time I was running the 32-bit version of Cubase, and started getting the slurring and crackling of playback…so I knew it was time to move up to 64-bit and increase the RAM.
Today I installed the 64-bit version on my laptop, also keeping the 32-bit one as well.
The problem comes when I enter “device setup” and I’m STILL seeing the same max settings as before. I use a Focusrite SAFFIRE 6 USB as my interface, and with the 32-bit version the buffer limit was always 1024. With the new install I would’ve expected that to increase to at LEAST 4 or 5gb.
Though I rarely use it nowadays, I also noticed that my ASIO4ALL driver is still maxed out at 2048.
What am I doing wrong? Is there another place in Cubase I should be adjusting buffer sizes? I double-checked the laptop (windows 7 64-bit) and can see that it “sees” the full 8gb.
