64 bit windows 7, 3770k i7 3.5gz, gigabyte mobo, 16 gig ram, RME UFX at 2048 samples, Cubase 7.5.20
I have the latest USB, video and every driver imaginable, tweaked out powersaving plan, tried with ASIO guard on and off. .
I have small 5 track 24 bit /44.1k project using the following resources
- 1 instance of EZ Drummer 2
- 1 instance of brainworx rockrack
- fx track with S-Gear 2.41 on on it
- master bus with exmix 2
- i track with Amplitube 3 frozen
- 1 track with nectar 2 frozen
With just this my average load is almost 50% and my real time peak meter goes just over 50.
My windows performance shows an average use of about 9% across the cores, but core 1 is a little high hovering around 50%.
I feel like I am not using much but can barely scale above this.
Ignore my thread! I had inadvertently throttled down CPU performance!
