Default Re: New CLA Plugin - Looks Very Cool

Better emulations probably use more CPU. That said, there's many ways to skin a cat and some programming can be far more simple and elegant to achieve the same result. Either way, native processing power is up exponentially over what we had say 10-15 years ago and we can run many scores of plugins without resulting to AudioSuite.

Personally I'm highly unlikely to run the CLA MixHub on every channel. I tend to grab whatever comes to mind and see if it works. I tried it on a lead vocal on a mix the other day. I found the original CLA-76 blue stripe sounded better than the MixHub switched to Bluey compressor so I took it off. One instance didn't seem to tax my modest i5 more than any other Waves plugin. Anyhow, a welcome addition to the arsenal. I'm sure it will get some use.

Can anybody back me on that??

I've noticed the same trend. I first began noticing it with VIs. Lately it seems I'm always hitting up against CPU limits with any number of plugins. The better VI's, for example, hit the CPU pretty hard. Omnisphere is a good example. Great VI, no question, but definitely a hog on the CPU. So is Synapse Audio's Dune 2 and Dune 3. The trade off, though, is they sound so great! There's others like that as well.



Now, it seems, we're seeing the same thing with processing plugs, like the CLA Mixhub. Great concept, and I do like the sound I can get from it. But, I am limited for now on how much I can use in any one session. I have to make judicious use of track freeze and rendering etc to free up resources.



Of course, I'm more vulnerable to CPU limits that many others because my system is a bit outdated (kind like its user!). I'm sure when I finally upgrade to a newer system with more recent and faster CPU and such, that things will be much better.



It would be nice to have the developers say that on, say, a Win-10 64bit system running "XX" cpu at XGHz, we had no issues running X instances of this plugin. Or something like that. At least it would be a guide as to what to expect.

To some respect I can begin to see the practicality in a SoundGrid. It’ll help take that extra load off the system and it’s sometning that you can make itself useful of for a number of year. It’s just a pity not too many have gotten on board. Flux has and so have Sonnox, outside that Plugin Alliance just have a small selection of plugins.

I wonder how or if this will map to my D-Command I just bought, I'm in the Philippines for a funeral until the 3rd of March so no way for me to test it until then. Any ideas? I picked it up from AudioDeluxe this morning for $42 with the LOVE30 promo code.
