Default Re: CPU cramp?

What is your buffer setting when this happens? Once recording is done, bumping the buffer to 1024 takes a lot of stress of the system(but does add latency to any incoming audio, so its not handy for recording). Some plugins are bigger resource hogs than others(amp sims are among the worst). For me, TL Space just kills my sessions(ever since PT9). If I add that plugin, even if the cpu(RTAS) meter is down near 20-30%, I get a bouncing line that jumps between 50 and 90% and will stall the session if the buffer is set low(too bad as I love the plugin).
