Hey guys, so black firday and christmas sales are (almost) over and i've got a lot of new stuff, especially spitfire. But the new spitfire stuff that i downloaded absolutely destroys my CPU. I've downloaded BDT and Solo Strings from spitfire, and one note at a time is enough to get that crackling cpu-overload noise, which i find really strange. With solo strings it's so bad, it's literally unusable right now. So my pc is: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40Ghz 32 RAM 64 bit Cubase Samples are stored on internal Samsung MZ-76E1T0B/EU 860 EVO I did batch resaving, tried enabling multiprocessor support, experimented with the instrument preload buffer size. Doesn't help. I don't know much about CPU's, I don't have an idea how good my CPU is compared with what's the standard for this kind of stuff. I plan to go for 64 RAM, put i assume this won't change this particular problem. The reason i'm so surprised, in case anyone wonders, is that I already used many sample instruments at the same time as you can see here, and it worked just fine. I thought this had put the CPU to the test. The my question is: Is it really the CPU? Do i need to buy a better one, or is there anything i can do or do wrong?
