Hi again people,

I'm planning on building a rather extremely complicated template which could need a great amount of buses with inserts and sends and stuff in order to provide several monitor outputs with submixing facilities ... my question is ... How CPU heavy is a BUS? uuuh, anybody tried to get working something with lots of buses? (perhaps a hundred or so?)

... in fact that raises another question (recursive thinkin' ... bad stuff for 1AM) ... which should be practica limits in ardour? I use RME cards, kolivas kernels, deeply tuned and updated Gentoo but I'd really love to know in "dimension" which could be the limits ... N tracks, M buses, P plugins etc... for a reference sistem.

Also how many editing groups, mixing groups can be defined?

A muted BUS consumes CPU?

I think that you will run out of ports on jack side.

You can always add more ports to jack with the --port-max parameter.
