So I did a bunch of PC and OS (Windows 10) optimizations a while ago on my laptop DAW (Cubase Artist 9.5.4). And after my most recent work I decided to check overall performance via task manager.
I’ve just started working on my latest song which only consists of a piano midi track and an instance of Halion SE and “The Grand”.
The CPU is only at 10% but the memory is at 25% which I found kind of startling. My laptop has 16Gb of RAM and Cubase is only using about 1.2Gb but even with all the optimizations I was surprised how many background and windows processes were running consuming the remaining 3+Gb.
Is this typical?
