A brief history of "Cubase Performance Test"
Since there've always been so much confusion surrounding the real performance of different systems running Cubase, I realized a little standard Cubase SX project that everybody can download and play on their systems.
This was Test v1.0, the same Timo Sack used in his website a few days later.
I improved the Test in a more meaningful one, v2.0.
At the same time I published my website for collecting results from Cubase users.
Steinberg published in Service.steinberg.net a "Performance Test":
this test is just a brutal copy of my Test v1.0.
Steinberg corrects their page with a credit to FiveTowers.
I realized new Test v3.0, more meaningful e very well-done.
Steinberg published a document about
advanced multi-core processor support
with Cubase SX and Nuendo 3:
they use FiveTowers Test.
Cubase 4 introduce many new features, like new VST3 architecture.
I realized new Test v4.0, the only one Cubase 4 compliant.
