Default Re: Real CPU Usage vs. Pro Tools System Usage Window

Ran into this:

So it appears the system usage meter also takes audio driver load into account which is a whole different can of worms and now it seems like we're staring at a bigger issue with how DAWs handle plugins in realtime.

If I run into similar results with the new DAW I'll report back and then delve into how something like Vienna Ensemble Pro either helps or hurts. I may be looking at another solution there as VEP would be focusing on instrument processing externally and Pro Tools/Another DAW could be left alone to focus on just the mixing/mastering side of things...

I just can't accept that audio processing wouldn't have the resources it needs to catch up, not when mine and others CPUs are hardly starting to scratch 30-50%.
