Increasing CPU usage while recording
Hi @ everyone!
I'm really looking forward for the version 2 of Ardour! Until now, I used Windows for recording with my 2 SEKD ARC88 cards. After writing an ALSA Driver for this cards, I tried this with Ardour (using last svn version). 8 Channels recording is no problem.
But the problem is, that with proceeding recording the CPU usage is increasing. At beginning recording the CPU usage is at about 40%. When the recording pointer arrives the right side of my screen the CPU is at 100% usage. After flipping the screen to a new side, it falls down to nearly 40%.
Tring with version 0.99 of Ardour, the usage is nearly constant at 40%.
I have a Pentium 4 with 2 GHz and 256 MB of rom and ubuntu-studio. Is there a change in version 2 causing this issue or is my system just to slow? Does anyone have the same problem?
