I’ve not found an entry here in this forum, so I start a new thread.
My studio computer is a i7-3770K with Win 7 64Bit, 16GB RAM and 2 hard drives (500MB for system area including VSTs and 1TB for data like sample libs and projects).
I now have a project imported with 48 audio channels in WAV format (24Bit, 44100 Hz) and when I make an audio export, this is much slower than an export with 35 vst instruments. That means for me, that during the audio export (and also when I work with the project) all audio files are read from disk.
And I would like to ask why? All audio files together have a size of about 600MB (in WAV format) and my RAM has 16GB, so this should be nothing for the machine. Why are not all audio files in memory? I had extra chosen a lot of memory for the machine and I have really no project in Cubase, which uses more than 5 GB (System+Cubase+VSTs+Audio Files). Usage of disks (and their cache) means a slow down of the performance.
Is there any option in Cubase to make settings, how much RAM can be used for audio files?
thanks a lot in advance
PS: In my business job I am working with inmemory database technology, where everything is kept in memory - due to optimization of performance - that’s the reason I am wondering, and why I am asking.
