I took the plunge last night and installed cubase 8.05. What a mistake ! If I load a 7.5 song into 8.05 there are very high performance spikes. The specific song that could run flawlessly in 7.5 prior to installing 8.05 now has performance spikes even in 7.05. The performance meter was much lower and more consistent in general with this track but now it is moving up and down all over the place…even more so in 8.05.
I have not installed anything else apart from 8.05 since I last checked this track was working fine in 7.5 so what the hell has happened ?
Additional: Even a new song I’ve created in 7.5 now has performance spikes. I literally have 5 instruments which I’ve never had issues with before. My system can normally handle many more instruments than this.
For the track I have: 1 x groove agent se. 2 x diva. 1 x omnisphere & 1 x zebra(HZ). This is a very simple set up and yet now I have issues with performance ! The real time meter goes up and down erratically whereas on projects prior to the new install the performance meters would be fairly stable at the lower end.
