  1. Also @ Thomann off course.
  2. I think the samples might be this starter pack.

  4. + Now we know where the term "galloping bass" comes from .......
  5. Agree - my 14 years old RME Fireface 400 is still running fine and has never caused me any headaches, although production stopped around 2010-11 RME provided a driver as late as 2019, that's dedication to the products and the users. ASIO & multiple interfaces? Does it work at all? I remember that it wasn't officially supported when I thought about getting another interface a gazillion years ago, however (if my memory is right?) WDM drivers did but the latency depended on the slowest driver if you combined different interfaces. When it comes to the Mac vs PC "debate" I've seen both kinds of systems crash at professional studios, IMO it comes down to what the user feels most comfortable with and setting up whatever OS you use for the purpose - if you don't want to do it yourself for one reason or another there are companies that can do it for you (like Jim Roseberry's Studiocat for instance). I wish there was a dedicated OS for DAW's BTW.
  6. This Besides - if you're perfect everytime the audience might as well buy the CD or use streaming. Other than that - be as prepared as possible, i.e. be as well rehearsed and well rested as possible, clear your mind from anything else than the music and make sure your equipment is in good shape. Playing out should be a fun experience so it may also help to push one self towards a happy state of mind. Or you can do as me - be lazy and just leave the stage😄 Having fun with the audience is the key for me and the best part of making ""organized noizzze".
  7. English is not my native language so I apologize for misspellings and maybe sometimes coming off as a bit impolite, which obviously is not intended. My thoughts anywho (you obviously get the idea "remove/disable anything not needed" for your use): The Bonjour service is installed as part of Ilok so I think it might need to be reenabled(?), never thought about experimenting with it though. Is ElanFPservice for fingerprintbased login? If so and unless you use it I´d stop that too (maybe set it to manual start depending on what you use it for?) or possibly uninstall it. Do you use the internal soundcard? If not I´d disable the RtkAudUService64_BG service or uninstall/disable that soundcard in Windows' device manager. The FLV stuff doesn´t need to autostart, you can set FLV as your default mediaplayer in Windows settings if it´s your preferred player. Apart from the above it´s hard to give advice based on just what CCleaner can do, as an example my printer's service shows up in Windows services panel, but not in CCleaner (I set that to manual start BTW which works fine on my machine). I learned a lot from Blackviper's tweaks and Tweakhound's tweak guide (back when Vista was new his guide turned my midrange laptop from unusable for DAW to recording 16 tracks simultaneously troublefree), when it comes to services I recommend to not mess with any service you're not sure of what it does exactly and just disable 1 (or at least just a few) at a time so if you run in to problems you know what probably caused it. This guide for that other DAW is worth reading too. I think Pete Brown's Unofficial guide is a good place to start before doing anything else. I hope the above is useful.
  8. Apart from the very low CPU speed and other already mentioned possible causes you seem to have a lot of processes going, in idle my (somewhat tweaked) Win 10 Pro machine shows 76 running services after a fresh start while my older (less tweaked) machine with Windows 10 LTSB only has 53. From memory a freshly installed Windows has a little over 100 processes in idle so I would look for unnecessary autostarting programs/services in the taskmanager and if that doesn´t help I´d also look for unnecessary Windows Services in the control panel.
  9. Don´t trust Windows update when it comes to drivers, my experience is that driver updates should be made manually, i.e. look for and download them yourself directly from the manufacturer - pre the February(?) 2021 cumulative update my DAW-machine worked fine, after the update it started crackling under relatively low load. After having torn my hair and making guttural noises for a while I started looking for added services and checking for driver updates since Latencymon results more or less looked like yours - installing the latest network adapter driver (just Wired, not PROset) from Intel solved my problems. The at the time latest network driver didn´t even show up in Windows optional driver updates. I have also disabled the HDaudbus.sys through Sysinternals Autoruns since (AFAIK) it´s related to the motherboards internal soundcard which (like the internal videocard) is disabled in BIOS - but Windows 10 persistently wants to use and install drivers for. This didn´t happen in Windows 8 when you disabled something in BIOS.
  10. Call it what you want, Steinberg's own comparison says Nuendo can do anything that Cubase does but has "more of everything" - the only thing missing in Nuendo but not in Cubase that I could see in their comparison is, as you mentioned, VST Transit.
  11. Nuendo does everything Cubase does, think Cubase XL/Platinum/Producer, so you don´t need it anyway afaik - I bought the competitive upgrade last week so maybe there´s some advantage to using Cubase instead that I don´t see yet? Being a Sonar XL/Producer/Platinum user almost exclusively for about 20 years I´ve got to say there are some things that feel a bit awkward usagewise - but I´ll learn sooner or later.🙂
  12. You probably have to get in touch with their support as I have the latest 2 versions for some reason - despite buying versions 4-6 and being registered on their forums I don´t get the deal-mails. They respond very quickly though. 🙂
  13. Hi Pathfinder, MS do have a strange sense of humour for choosing update dates.🙄 I have pretty much the same specs on my DAW ASUS Z370 TUF, 32 GB RAM, i8700 + Asus 2060 GPU + 2x M.2 & 6 SSD's/HD's + a Allen-Heath SQ-5 as audio interface. OS Buildinfo is identical, so I don´t think it´s the latest Win update that caused this. Do you experience sluggishness in any other way on the computer? If you do I think a virus and malware scan might be a good idea + look if any other programs/apps have been updated and possibly added an autostarting service or two, I always try to disable autoupdates in the programs/apps. Another thing to look at is what driver is used for the network adapter, I know it makes little sense but upgrading to the latest drivers from Intel can make a difference for various programs - including DAW:s. (Another, possibly better way, is off course to disable the network adapter when using the DAW) Latest Intel network drivers I installed the "wired 26.1_x64" version. Latest Intel chipset drivers - for some reason Win update don´t always (or rather rarely) install or even suggest to use Intel's latest drivers even though they might be useful for the latest Win update. Other than the above I´ve done pretty much the tweaks suggested by Pete Brown here + disabled a bunch of services that I don´t need on a dedicated DAW, especially disabling the (at the time new) "Connected Devices" services made the computer feel overall less sluggish. Good luck and I hope something of the above is useful for the solution.
  14. I didn´t feel burned, maybe a little disappointed, I see it this way - I still got more updates/stuff in $/day than what the (kind of) yearly update fee would have cost me, my biggest concern when the doors closed was about the servers so I still could do new installs when necessary.🙂 I´m VERY grateful💖 to Bandlab and the CW-staff for what they´ve done after the shutdown, from keeping the servers alive to updating the renamed Sonar platinum in the same (maybe even more) forward thinking spirit as before the shutdown.🙂
  15. I also remember the early Sonar (I started with Sonar XL) days when there was about 2-3 updates a year and no one worried about it unless there actually was a problem with the latest release.🙂
