I’ve been away from cubase doing other things and coming back to it I notice some strange ASIO performance issues.
Several simple plugs seem to draw a much larger amount of the available ASIO resources than they should.
For some reason each of the following adds about 20% to the ASIO meter;
Any MDA plugs
Any digitalfishphones plugs
Kontakt5 completely smashes my system and maxes out all ASIO resources. These are just the ones I’ve tested I’m sure there will be more.
On the other hand HALion, Mystic, Prologue and Spector consume virtually no resources.
I can even load a large violin patch in EWQL Play’s Symphonic orchestra, but a simple oscillator plug chews through the resources?
It seems like older stuff takes more resources no matter how simple the plugin. Is this a 32 bit plug Vs 64 bit operating system and DAW environment?
WTF do I do here? Even some of Steinbergs own VSTi’s are causing trouble (Embracer, Monologue).
Many thanks for any help
