Plugin Alliance Opto CPU spikes

Since Pa switched to a new copy protection I get a CPU spike with all of their plugins every 10-15 seconds, extremely severe with the great sounding opto, which is a shame.

I've been in contact with them, they couldn't find a problem, sent me a new version, but the problem persisted. i tried computer and usb-stick authorization methods - no difference.

This behaviour happens on 2 mac pros and a 2015 macbook air - logic instrument track, say a piano coming from the exs-sampler with the opto and my cpu goes nuts. now using opto 1.3

Is there anybody who can confirm this? thanks!

That doesnt sound like something that would be caused by copy protection or authorization.

Hard to tell from the outside, it's often copy protection (even pace had a problem like this not long ago) or some graphics (open gl) related stuff.

PA said it could have something to do with CP, they suggested to me trying out usb-stick authorization.

I can post a video about the cpu meter in Logic spiking around every 10-15 seconds to unreasonable levels on 'live'-tracks - this has been happening now for more then a year on several computers and only with PA plugins - strange that i'm the only one.
