Cubase gets slower?

Cubase gets slower?

When I open a project with lots of tracks and FX, I can usually play the project and the ASIO meter does not jump (let say it is around 50%). After hitting play and stop, a few times, opening the mixer and closing, etc, I get the asio meter jumping like crazy....

Is it possible that after a while cubase is open or running, it starts a hidden process in the background that is running and interrupting the ASIO meter?

I am really having a hard time....

Which version of Cubase?

I had something like this. No idea if it's the same issue but you can try this anyway.

Next time it happens hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and select task manager.
Right click processes
Select set Affinity
Untick all but the first 3
Click apply
Reopen set affinity
Retick all of them

If it's the same problem the Asio meter should be steady now.

Can't promise anything but it's worth a punt.

i am having the same problem from time to time as well.
doing the task-manager thing as well. sometimes it helps, never for too long though.
have the suspicion its somehow related to some plugins especially delays with long feedbacks dialed in or with heavy modulation.. turning some plugs off an on again does help sometimes too.
just another cubase-conundrum in the long list, i reckon.
things like this occur more and more when you get closer to full asio blast.

Mine is fine until the 40% mark and then the trick above fixes it. Starts to disrupt again once I hit 75% or so without a fix. I've put it down to poor balancing across the cores in certain set ups but the must be another factor as you say as one machine I have does it and the other doesn't. Annoying but I've lived with worse.
