I’m mocking up a full John Williams score right now, and I’m running in to some performance trouble. My machine specs are:
Mac Pro 5,1
2 x 2.66 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon
64 GB ram
1 system HDD, 5 SDD sample drives
Buffer at 2048
LASS 2, Cinebrass, Cinewinds, Spitfire Perc, some waves plugins
During MIDI playback in particularly dense areas of the score I get instrument drop outs, and the 2048 buffer barely keeps the pops and clicks out. I would think a machine like this would be able to run a full midi score without much trouble, or nearly as much trouble as I’m having at 2048. Is there something I’m missing that could improve my performance in Cubase, or is my system not as powerful as I though it was?
