Default No more CPU spikes...

Hey guys,

you can call me dumb, but I just recently figured out how to get along without CPU spikes in PTHD 12.6.1.

My meter-plugin Nugen VisLM2 was on the Masterout, that went out to monitoring. As soon as I put a channel in record or input monitoring, CPU load was up to 50% and sometimes produced spikes that stopped PT with an error.

Now I made an Aux with my meter on (output goes nowhere) and this gets its signal from a send off my Mixauxmaster. Effect is, that Cpu load is now at only 10% and no spikes!!

Just wanted to let you know.

That's really interesting, and useful to know. I'd notify Nugen.
