Streamline CPU usage..

What exactly is protools 10HD thinking about when sitting idle?


On an empty session with a single stereo aux passing through audio to my monitors - 38.4% CPU usage with 74 threads sitting idle doing nothing.


48/24 session @ 128 samples


Logic on the hand, 300 tracks up with about 70 VI's sitting idle - same specs is using 12% / 161 threads sitting idle.


What exactly is PT doing that is needing that much juice?




Mac Pro 12core 3.46Ghz / 48GB Ram / OSX 10.6.8 / PTHD10 with HD native & MADI. Logic using RME PCIe MADI
