I would be grateful for feedback, my 8 year old pc and cubase studio 4 worked flawlessly with zero latency on vocals and zero cpu spikes.
I upgraded to a high spec laptop, windows 8 and cubase 8 and have been struggling for weeks with CPU and latency issues. Also after 5 minutes with cubase the fan comes on, I eventually fix the latency and now am suffering form CPU spikes.
I thought my laptop would easily handle things so wanted to double check with those of you who are more experienced, anyhow at first glance could you please let me know if my laptop spec should easily handle cubase.
I use an external SSD for some of my libraries…
The laptop is a Dell XPS15 9530 and this is the spec…
