First time here on the Steinberg forums
I’ll try not to bog you down with all my computer setup problems (those are documented very well on a home recording forum :p) and just pick up where I’m at now.
PC: HP desktop, Win 7 Enterprise. 64 bit. recently upgraded to 16GB RAM and AMD Phenom II X4 CPU. and that’s where the problems began. Eventually they led to me giving the computer to a tech friend to do a service on. All seemed well, but I felt like there is too much strain on my CPU considering what it is (Quad Core, 3.7 GHz). I originally thought that when I saw the CPU running at a higher percentage in Advanced System Care 4 then I thought it should be. Then I really started thinking that when I saw the VST ASIO Performance meter living between the 3rd and 5th bars (which I assume is 30-50%) when I opened up any sort of virtual instrument track. Before (before the tech friend set it up that is) I don’t recall ever seeing it go beyond the 3rd bar.
Also more concerning is that a couple of times ( random start up occasions) my computer has flashed to a “CPU Fan Failed” screen and shut itself down within 5 seconds. But on the start up immediately after the fan failure screen it starts up fine. Now out of the 10 or so times that I’ve started up the computer since I’ve got it back that’s only happened twice, but still, I don’t think that’s a normal thing at all
fellow Cubase users’ opinions.
where your vst performance meter sits
wtf you think is going on with my cpu situation
and also on a side note, your latency times ?(I’ve got 1.xxx ms input latency … but 13 ms output latency … is the gap between in/out latency times usual? )
Sorry for being the forum n00b
Thanks for reading
