The 7.0.2 update solved our most urgent concern with C7 - the poor ASIO Performance compared to 6.5.3 which I reported a while ago in this tread. Thank you. 7.0.2 performs adequate or even slightly better now with our super-loaded low-latency live systems.
Another improvement is a change in the EUCON Adapter. The Cubase mixer view used to change every time I used the Knob Set Selectors on my Avid McMix Consoles. This was very annoying. Now the Cubase mixer view doesn't Change anymore when I use Knob Set Selectors of the consoles.
I am very pleased, thank you.

In Cubase 6.5, this project runs rock solid, at the performance limit of the system yet I never have any ASIO meter reds and never any crackles.
With C 7.0.1, I get reds in the ASIO meter quickly, and occasional crackles, and sometimes (rarely) I get a burst of crackles. Although cpu load (in the Task Manager) is a bit lower in C7 compared to C6.5, ASIO performance is worse in C7.0.1
I even get occasional ASIO spikes and the red light going on when the project is stopped and ASIO Performance drops down to 45%.
I like the many improvements of C7. However, for me, good and reliable ASIO Performance is the single most important thing, and C7 has an issue here.
Fixing this issue is, for me, most important.
Tested this issue under W7/64 and W8/64, it's the same on either operating System.
