You know I have been testing and using Cubase Pro for a few years now. I do Applications Support at work and so it is a real passion for me :)

Which is why results like this really bother me:

NB: AG stands for ASIO Guard!

Why is Cubase so terrible on Mac? Ughh!

I have to wonder if the fact that Cubase is cross-platform means that it's impossible for them to optimize a single codebase for good performance on either / both platforms? Maybe because Logic is Mac-only that lets it have a codebase that can be ridiculously efficient in ways that Cubase could never be?

Then again, other apps like Ableton Live don't seem to have such a dramatic difference in performance between the two platforms, so what the hell do I know.

Ironically all the official Cubase channel stuff by Greg is done on Mac, but everytime I check the CPU meter, and there is always the red mark, indicating a real time audio peak, and there will be like 5 tracks in the session. I am even having to host synths in VEP to not crush Cubase, and I'm on an iMac Pro. I keep thinking about Logic, I just like the midi editing and Note Expression in Cubase so much.

I admit that as a long-time Logic user I am a little envious of some of the features in Cubase - mainly the slick way it deals with VEPro; or rather the normal way it deals with VEPro as opposed to Logic's incomplete and flawed implementation. But I hold out hope that the true multi-port MIDI handling that AUv3 has will some day find its way into the Logic + VEPro combo.

There's a lot to love in Logic - but there's a lot missing as well.

Still, I am secretly glad that I've put so many of my eggs into the EXS24 basket as this gives me a flimsy but legitimate-enough excuse NOT to switch DAWs. I do own Cubase and could use it if required, but after 25 years in Logic it feels like a comfy chair that I can't bear to part with, even if it's a little threadbare.

I’m not quite sure what’s going on there. IIRC AU3 has been ready to go in Logic for 2 years now, but Vienna haven’t released a new version of VEPro to take advantage of it yet.

That said, I don’t recall seeing any AU3 plugins out in the wild.

Experimenting with Cubase 10 on W7 for 2 days now, and all worked great, not only one crash. :)
This Vario Audio tool is sooooo great! (The mainly reason why I updated)
Yea - super solid here on W7 for last 3 weeks. Nice version - now if we can just get the 'replace audio in vid version' back..... Life would be more perfecter. :)

Yea - agreed on workflow. NOW, I open the project/cue in 8.5 - do my business - then go back to 10. :( BUT at least I can get er done - albeit time to do....
I switch to Cubase 5 often only because I have some cool 32bit VST's .... . It is great that you can load Cubase 5 projects into Cubase 10. Try this with different versions of Logic on an Apple Puter .... . ;)

Yes the replace track thing is just plain stupid. Everything else in C10 super as far as my workflow goes, zero crashes and no problems on a stock, unmodified, new Win 10 installation with 20 cores. Red Bars? What's that? :cautious: I've totally lost interest in Studio 4 or even switching to Macs for Logic. But Reaper's in the upper righthand drawer just in case...

DaVinci Resolve still has a well featured and easy to use free version, but it's maybe 10 minutes per clip with the import/align/render/check steps. Doesn't seem to trash the video quality if you keep the same video codec, which takes some client interaction to get right and assumes sympathetic clients with time to spare. But it sure breaks the workflow when you're on a roll. Fortunately I mostly deliver stems.

I would look at doing this in C8.5. It might take me 3-4 mins to do that.

You also point out something -- that BECUASE of C10 - I'll change out my main Daw puter earlier than planned to capitalize on more cores and W10 (higher resolution.)

Anyone finding C10 slower at enabling / disabling tracks & loading multi track presets (of disabled kontakt instruments) when compared to C9.5 ?
