I meant "seek" in the more traditional sense of the computer having to go find the audio on a drive, but considering how that's an established drive-related term it was a poor word choice.

Pianos can have a habit of doing that, especially those that are complex. I don't think any plugin, of any kind, has been more of a CPU hog in my experience than the older Abbey Road Classic Upright pianos (Mrs. Mills, Challen, etc.). If I tried playing even moderately thick chords using the sustain pedal my computer would self-destruct and burst into a blue flame.
