I am just mixing an album in N5.5. There are a couple of issues and strange behaviors which are turning work into a bad experience, on the other hand side I love a lot of the new and improved features…
One serious problem:
I am in a not-THAT-heavy blown project (I had way bigger projects in C5.5) and I am finally at 90% CPU - when the meter jumps to max I even have pops.
I opened the task-manager: about 30-35% CPU usage… I have a very recent i7 system, 12gb ram, SSD drives etc - the 35% feels realistic but WHY is Nuendo 5.5 so ineffective in using it? It was way better in C5.5.
Please check this picture
A todays host should be able to deal with more then one CPU!!
What is happening here?
