I have a question about the Steinberg Audio Power Scheme and improving ASIO performance. Whenever I add certain VSTs, I get BIG spikes in the ASIO performance meter. It’s like the meter will be less than half full, then jump to about 90%, sometimes even 100%. My computer has an i7 processor and is less than a year old.
When I enable the Steinberg Power Scheme, there’s a DRAMATIC improvement in the ASIO performance. But my question is if that uses more processing power and whatnot? I’ve read some reports from other users that the power scheme makes their system run hot and uses more power. I don’t want to put more strain than what’s necessary on my computer. Is it true that it uses more power? If it does use more power, is it not safe to leave enabled for long sessions?
I’m absolutely loving Cubase, but this ASIO performance issue that I’ve read about and experienced is quite worrying.
