I'm looking for insights on conserving resources with a large mix in Ardour. A few specific questions:
1. Is freeze functionality reasonably robust for most people? I tried it this morning and got a crash, but will revisit it when I get home.
2. Do vst plugins use more resources (in general) than LADSPA? I'm finding, bit by bit, some LADSPA plugins that I like as much as some of the vst's, and if the vst's eat up more resources, then I will be happy to limit my use of them even further.
3. I got the impression from comments in another thread that increasing Jack latency WON'T help free up resources in the same way we would expect it to do so in an ASIO/Windows environment. Is this true?
4. Are there any tweaks, Jack or otherwise that can help us to maximize resources (I'm already running the ll kernel, of course).
