    I'm just curious about how your ANUS-DAW is running with Cubase SX. I've found a link to this test file in a swedish forum: CubaseSXTest
    When I did it my CPU-load was ~52%.
    It would be interesting to see how your system is doing? I guess that Master Opus will probably win this test! :D
    Well this is my system:
    Asus P4B533-V Mobo
    Intel P4 2.4 GHz 533MHz
    512 Mb Samsung DDR PC2700
    WD 120 GB AudioDrive
    WD 120 GB OS-drive
    Matrox G550 videocard
    Win XP-Pro
    RME-Hammerfall LE soundcard
    Cubase SX
    Finally , I did 95% of the "Opus-Tweaks".
    It would be fun to see how different systems are doing in this test.

    Tore, that link sems to be dead or not responding at this time. Anyways, seems like a good idea. I'd like to try this just to see where I'm at with new system.

    DD, well I also had problems with that link a few hours ago. But now it seems to work.
    Leading their "high-score-list" is someone with 38% CPU-load... but you never know if they're telling the truth. To bad that there's only one Mac (notebook) on the list. It would be nice to see some G4's there. Anyway it would be nice to have a "number" on your DAW....Looking forward to the day I can say:

    Actually..the new Mini-Dac from Apogee goes to joke either! Check out the information of the site about the Mini-Dac!!
    Opus :D

    Hi Opus! How's your life as "sambo"? (Sambo is the swedish word for "living-together-with-your-girlfriend-without-being-married-yet")
    Any time for your DAW's?
    I've been "sambo" for 3 years now, having 2 kids... so I know how hard it can be to spend time with my lovely "ANUS-machine".

    Anyway, that Mini-Dac sounds like a very nice solution for a laptop DAW... or do you think it's worth trying out on desktop DAW's too?

    Back to´the topic... Am I the only one that has tried the DAW-CubaseSX-performance-test?
    I know that the link is slow ( I have to try it 2-3 times before it works) but the test is the only thing that I've found that can compare different systems. If someone would like to do do the test and can't access the site, I can email the testfile to you (it's a ~500kb zipfile).
    Or maybe you've tried it but you're afrid to post the results? ;)
