ReVibe - general performance hog, also 5.0 multi-mono instance is 5x load of 5.0

ReVibe II - one of my favourite reverbs for post - is a performance hog. Each instance is always "surround under the hood". Having a multi-mono instance on a 5.0 aux (to follow the input panning) results in 5x the load of a normal 5.0 instance. Even a mono instance calculates all surround legs (see parameters), only to output a mono downmix. Please update for proper scaling, maybe giving a true mono-only instance. Also, ...more »

Graphics GPU Accelerated

I think this will be less taxing to the CPU if the majority of the graphics runs off the actual GPU. Example. A lot of the plug-ins have meters, or some graphics that moves around. The bigger the session get the more taxing it is on the CPU. This will also be helpful if you have a quicktime or wmv movie in the session. GPUs are now powerful enough to work as a second or third processor. Running video and graphics off ...more »
