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

Thank you for anyone still following along. So I guess we arrive here:

What determines the capacity for realtime processing? It's clearly not CPU bound as I've never hit more than 55% ever and generally sit lower than 30%. Is it that the mix engine itself is having difficulty rendering all of those voices down to stereo? If so, is my interface responsible for this? Since I'm not using an HD edition, I was under the impression that all processing, including the mix engine, was handled by my CPU.

Questions, questions. Well, now that I have a Steinberg Key I can grab a trial of VEP. I'll try this in Pro Tools and Cubase and see if it offloads some of that processing from the ASIO driver...
