But if we're at the mercy of how much code is required to run a plugin, we're also gonna get get various amounts of smearing in our signal path. It's just the nature of working with digital audio on computers. We can compensate, we can get a faster processor, we can get faster converters, but we're all gonna have to face this issue to a small or large degree depending on our workstation.
Yea, I am running a fairly heavy machine here.

Its a Gigabyte Mobo with a liquid cooled I7 5960X at 3.5 Ghz, eight cores each with two threads. Gforce 900 graphics and 64 Mb of Ram.

I've no idea what would happen with a slower machine because I never tired the test before
