Anyone care to do a stress test by duplicating a mono channel with the strip on the insert?
I made a small test here:
12 dx tracks
10 stereo mx tracks
8 mono fx tracks
8 stereo fx tracks
15 mono foley tracks
(understanding that I have all pre-mixed)
1 Channelstrip on each one track.
But I added 4 stereo altiverbs
4 Aux sends in each one of those audiotracks
3 - 5.1 AUX STEM TRACKS
and 3 5.1 RECORDING TRACKS.
47% of CPU use on a macbook pro i5 mid 2010.
4 GIGA RAM. but now, I just got notice that the System Usage window now have CPU (NATIVE) & CPU (CLIP) indicators...
So doing this test without any audio on the tracks, I don`t now how much conclusive this test could be.
I also would like to say that turning off the EQ or the DYN section of the plugin, didn`t make any difference at all.
I hope it helps.
