I have a C12.0.30 project with 40 tracks, with plugin processing on almost all of the tracks. This is on a brand new AMD 7700X with 32 Gb DDR5 RAM.
Plays fine (CPU overload light and wouldn’t play at all on my old i7) … but not from measure 220.127.116.11 ? I get the CPU overload light, the play button turns green but the playhead doesn’t budge. The earliest it will start to play from is measure 18.104.22.168 there is a CPU bump, but not huge, and the project plays from there, anywhere else in the project it runs without a CPU bump (steady as per pic) and without so much as a hic.
It’s not a big issue for me as I start most of my projects from measure 3 to accommodate lead-ins, but just wondering why this would be? (no issues with an empty or small project).
