Why nobody didn't tell me?

Why nobody didn't tell me?

I was using Logic for years. Two years ago I discovered Acustica/Nebula plugins. Really Nice analog vibe ITB. My music was getting more and more acoustic. So, I wanted my processing to be at 96khz.

Today I recorded a vox and an a. guitar. Only two tracks. On the master bus in Logic I put the two Acustica plugins: TaupeTaupe and Magenta5. Oh boy, the CPU load was horrible and the Logic has just stopped playing audio. My MacPro 12 core (2 x 3.33 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon) with 64gb ram and SSD was struggling. It couldn't spread the load across the cores. The entire CPU load was on just one core peaking the maximum on the Logic's CPU meter.

Then I tried the SAME in Reaper and the CPU load was like 4-5%.

I though you guys were friends of mine. But you were hiding this secret from me for years

OK, I knew something, I was reading about the better performance of Reaper. But this is crazy. It is not even funny. Didn't know that the difference is huge

Now an old man has to learn a new app


UPDATE:
Sorry, in Reaper I put the plugins firstly not on the master bus. Now I realized that... My mac is having problems even with Reaper.

Dear Mod, please delete this thread. Thanks.

Here for the gear
 

In Reaper, I don't put anything on the master bus. Instead, the first thing I do is create a track (to be used as a bus (called submaster) and put all other tracks below it (i.e moved to the right so they are like inside it as a folder). Anything you would normally put on the master bus I put on this submaster. That way the plugins are multithreaded

Yes it is better CPU performance than on the master bus.
And much better then Logic

Hold up. The master buss processes plugs with one core. But a folder track acting as a master buss uses multicore to process? How the!?!?

Also by having master FX on the sub master you can route a new overdub track direct to the master and it's record monitoring is not affected by latency of the plugs on the sub master.
Makes it possible to track live in heavy projects with master FX still on.
