Today, all of a sudden I am getting crazy CPU over-usage, even when playback is stopped on a song.
I have about 30 audio tracks playing, with stock plugins and only a few VSTs (All sample rates matching)
1 instance of addictive drums2
2 instances of Arturia analog lab - both of which tell me they are using about 2% CPU
It is telling me that 2 instances of ampire are using 20% CPU each?? That doesn't seem normal.
CPU usage is fluctuating all over the place and randomly jumps to 100% and then sits there for a while and eventually falls back down but then never goes below 50%. This is even with maximum dropout protection engaged (usually I use low setting and usually use a small process block size without problem.
I consider this to be a small number of tracks, plugins and VSTs and for some reason the CPU keeps maxing out according to studio one's meter, and everything gets all distorted and clippy.
Meanwhile, when I look at windows task manager, it says my CPU is at 25% (With studio one using 23%)
Anyone know why this could be happening all of a sudden? The only recent change I made was the most recent studio one 5 update a few days ago and a windows update a few days ago.
Other songs don't seem to be causing this problem. This song is basically un-workable now for whatever reason, unless I convert vsts to audio, but the system is still being overused way more than I would expect for this.
