Really can't wait to try this RC.
They said they're working on it several times, we just have to wait. It takes time to rewrite the whole thing. You should HIDE the VC when not using it to make changes, it improves the speed a lot
Optimism is great, but this issue has really been making my Virus useless for the past few months. It also makes Cubase 5 more sluggish than it should be whenever the Virus is playing sounds, which makes it a less convenient option than most softsynths. I bought it for the total integration and virus control, and so far it isn't delivering. I've been contemplating the idea of returning to XP but my production computer is also used for some of my work so it would be a huge pain to go back.
I really cannot wait till this thing is fixed and I'm glad I'm not the only one. Would be cool to have a rough idea of what's going on with this fix they're working on.
I posted a message on steinberg cubase regarding the GUI issue and got the following reply:
Try disabling Desktop Composition for Cubase. What this will do is turn off Aero when you're running Cubase and automatically turn back on once you close it. I don't run my TI on Windows 7 so I'm not sure if this will actually work. It could help since it would ease pressure off the graphics card.
1. Right-click on the Cubase icon on your desktop and choose Properties.
2. Click on the Compatibility tab.
3. Put a check next to "disable desktop composition".
4. Launch Cubase.
You'll get a message about Windows switching to a Basic theme, just close it. There's an option to "not show this message again" that you can enable if you want. But yeah, after doing this, see if you still have the GUI lag.
After you've done this the lag is MUCH less. Still a little laggy but for me it's acceptable.
Tnx 2 Hell Yeh
Tried it. Sadly no effect for me.
Thanks for the idea though.
Having this issue here as well. Any ETA on a fix...?
