DSP CPU utilization in Ardour 3 (wow!!)
If this is what I think it is, then I am now able to gain more benefit from my multi-core CPU... and even better, set some limits so I still have CPU for graphics and other threads..
I knew this would happen, and from what I can see the implementation was worth the wait...
Thank you Paul and the ardour team!!!..
Before I throw in a feature request, I am wondering if the menu is dependant on the CPU.. e.g. more cores, more menu options..
I currently can see, these options
- all but one processor
- all available processors
- 2 processors
I have a triple core CPU, so I really only have a choice here of 2 or 3 processors..
In time I may upgrade to a CPU with 6 or 8 cores.. If I have more cores .. is it possible to say select 5 cores for the DSP CPU utilization, leaving a CPU core for graphics subsystems, one for MIDI and maybe one for something else... (or is this ridiculous).. I ask because I like using MusE for MIDI editing and have been playing with the idea of using hydrogen or another software sampler in place of my old MPC 2000xl...
This maybe asking a bit much.. but let me know if it's reasonable and I will put in a feature request in Mantis..
