I’m a singer-songwriter and about to buy a new CPU for my PC.
I want some real-life examples of how Cubase copes with multiple Audio & MIDI Tracks.
I want to hear from anyone who has a Ryzen 5, 7 or 9.
I’m hoping that Ryzen 7 will be sufficient
I appreciate any help
In my experience, Cubase copes well with multiple audio and MIDI tracks.
Sufficient for what?
A computer rig used as a DAW is only as powerful as it’s weakest link. You can have a fabulous, top of the line CPU but end up with poor performance due to a weak FSB or a poor ASIO drive or an interfering USB device or… You see where I’m going here.
You may find some interesting data from benchmark tests at DAWBench.
The only real advice I can soundly give is to use a professional PC builder that builds computers for A/V professionals. Anything else introduces varying degrees of gamble.
5950x 16 core…Cubase performs fantastic. Tons of CPU power.
Can I ask… What is your Coomputer spec:
Motherboard name, RAM, Graphics Card, Audio Interface, Cubase version, Windows Version, etc ?
Because I’m also going to be getting a new motherboard.
I already got a decent graphics card,
So I’m hoping to pair up the new CPU with a Motherboard which doesnt cause any bottlenecks.
It would be great if you can list your specs, maybe useful for my decisions
i think unless you are doing some crazy orchestral stuff with 100+ tracks of heavy VIs… just about any modern laptop system will do. it actually doesn’t take lots of computing power to do audio. video is another story.
Thank you very much
wow! 128GB Ram
your graphics card wasnt on the list… do you happen to know it, off-hand?
Is there anything you would have changed about your computer spec? ie: are you happy with the motherboard & graphics card?
My HP laptop is Windows 11 with a Ryzen 5/16GB/500GB/Presonus Studio24c. Cubase 12 works fine here. I did have to do some tweaking such as remove AUEPMaster.exe - AMD User Experience Program executable which was introducing pops and clicks. I also disabled the onboard soundcard in Device Manager as well as other tweaks I learned online.
Nothing impressive or problematic with this graphic card…works fine for Cubase.
The CPU I really want is the Ryzen 5800X
Many people online saying how it runs hot, and others advising you can easily reduce the temp to a good level by decreasing the PPT, TDC and EDC in the BIOS.
Each person has their own particular amount which they reduce the PPT, TDC & EDC. So that is for me to experiment with.
Does this sound like an ok approach to deal with this situation? or is it silly of me to be buying a CPU which knowingly runs hot ?
Multiple topics for the same questions are not necessary.
