Keep in mind that I had a perfectly stable experience and none of these problems before this paid upgrade to Cubase pro 8.5
Desktop Windows 7 64 16gb ram 4.0 ghz
Laptop windows 10 64 6gb ram 2ghz
This is a description of working on my desktop system for the most part.
Some times my resource meter will be 1/8 used on a particular project. Then at other time (same sparse project) 3/4 is used.
Player head in project window and in sample editor window does not always follow simple play back. sometimes, it is invisible.
Music will play, but there is nothing to indicate where you are in the playback.
Moving event parts does not snap to the proper Quantization even though snap is on. If it set to bar, moving events rarely snap to a bar when zoomed out. I have to zoom way in then it is more compliant but still not locked in like it used to be.
Control and select and drag in the audio recorded on a lane track (cntrl + drag) down … Will not lock event in time.
I always record at 48 khz 32 bit
Now sometimes my projects load as 44.1. 32 bit.
Triggering the option to change the sample rate and bit depth of files that do not need to be converted.
I think this happened after I was working with an old file that was set to 44.1 16bit. But still…
Glitches and Skips in mix down… Timing looses sync. But catches up. In the mix down.
Some times certain tracks wont be heard on the first mix attempt. I change nothing and do it again, and miraculously the missing track will return to the mix.
And I don’t even have the energy to get into the behavior of the media bay on my fully scaned libraries…with the perpetual searching…
As a pro. I cant believe I paid for this “upgrade”.
Me and my clients love the new features!
