Topic: Nuendo, Fireface 800, Win 7 - CPU goes to idle when hitting solo
I've been using Nuendo and firewire and Nuendo for ages and been pretty satsified, but recently I swapped to win 7 64 bit and things have changed.
I use Nuendo 4 32 bit and everything work as a charm exept, when I hit solo in my host and cpu slowly goes to 80 percent and jumping causing major crackles.
When not in solo, I am able to have lots of plugs and everything works smooth. I can even run the machine on 48 samples wih several heavy plugs, but If I work in any buffersize and hit solo everything changes. This includes 1024.
I am sure it has to do with the drivers in some way.
While I am it, why won't RME create drivers with higher buffersizes like 2048 and upwards. More stable mixing would be possible. I had a multiface and that had up to 8000 someting.
