I have a big project with lots of stuff going on. Up to 18 minutes long.
Thats said, the Asio meter is safe at around half way and my CPU usage is between 45-55% I also have 5.5-6 gig free ram left unused.
Using Cubase 7.5.2? (newest version patched)
iMac late 2012 i7 3.9ghz 16 gig ram, 3TB fusion drive, 680MX 2gb GFX.
all up to date.
Its been a few weeks since i’ve done anything big in cubase so maybe it’s meant to be like this?
I click in the project along the timeline and it take 2-3 second before the timeline bar moves to the position. Zooming in and out of the project is really really slow.
The peak meters are sticking and going around 1 fps
The timeline bar is also only moving once ever beat it seems.
when it’s like this is almost impossible to work with. It’s horrible.
Meanwhile the rest of the my computer operation remains un disturbed.
I’m not moaning , just wondered if this was something that others are having issues with?
I found the problem and it’s not just me expecting the earth from my iMac and Cubase or forgetting it’s limitations, it’s a bug.
Extremely low GUI performance that effects menus and peak meters as well as the timeline.

- Close the mixer
- never use the mixer
- wait and prey that Steinberg have seen this and will fix it soon
- go do something else with your life
