Re: Best system and storage management

The main question is, what is your data backup strategy? Hi Trevor, I generally have projects on an external non SSD hard disk and libraries in part stored on system hd and partially on the same projects hd... I suppose I could manage things better but the weird thing to me is that I quickly reach ...

Re: Best system and storage management

Unless you’re running enormous projects, 16GB is enough to ensure your samples are loaded into memory. The first thing to look at is cleaning your Mac mini! It may also be that the heat sink needs to be re-seated. Hi Richard, thank you for answering, I don't run big projects and this is the main re...

Best system and storage management

Hi everybody, I can guess this it’s probably an old kind of question but I would be very interested in knowing about the best way to manage hard disk, softwares and libraries. I’m using a late 2012 macmini (16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, 2,6 GHz Intel Core i7, Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB) and my main daw a...

Re: Cubase 11 iper high CPU usage on A Mac Mini late 2012

Hi again, today I tried opening the same old project in Cubase 10.5, that I still have running, with a 128 buffer, and it actually used a bit less of CPU but not in a significant way... (I use the equivalent of task manager that's called System monitoring) I also tried to deactivate asio guard but I...

Re: Cubase 11 iper high CPU usage on A Mac Mini late 2012

Hi James,
I hadn't considered this possibility, I could try to open the Mac MIni and check it, even if it's quite completely closed, actually...
Thank you for answering,

Re: Cubase 11 iper high CPU usage on A Mac Mini late 2012

Hi, OneWorld, I checked Audio Guard and it was set on Normal so I tried to switch it off and i set buffer at 128 (I change it depending on the situations) and I notice a light improving but something is still not going as it should: I can't have 95% CPU used for a project I created in Cubase 4.5, wi...

Cubase 11 iper high CPU usage on A Mac Mini late 2012

Hi everybody, hope this is the right place for posting this question... Is it normal that Cubase, only for being opened, NO project loaded, takes over 50% of CPU?, according to system monitoring? I’m using a MacMini late 2012, I7 quadcore, 16GB RAM, 256 SSD drive (32GB free space…), OS Mojave... And...

Re: motu 828mkII routing in mac os

Hi Sarqueboute, sorry I'm answering very late. I had initial difficulties with Firefox / Safari / iTunes but this settled down by tweaking the controls (don't really know how…) This is exactly what I was trying to understand but it seems it's not possible to route Firefox/Chrome audio or audio file ...

Re: motu 828mkII routing in mac os

Did you not buy the motu to use in a DAW? I guess that's one major question I also have for you.. I hope you find a solution. I'm also planning on getting an old mk3. Hi wearashirt, I've been using my MOTU for fifteen years at least an I still am, with Cubase 11, Live 10, Sibelius, and other softwa...

Re: motu 828mkII routing in mac os

Hi Black Sheep, it seems so, actually... :-/ I'm trying to get in touch with MOTU tech support... In the meanwhile I downloaded MOTU mac audio installer from https://motu.com/download (it mentions 828x) and I installed it (v. 1.6 83634) with no troubles but anything changed... Hope MOTU tech support...
