Identifying which plugins are using the most CPU?

Post by Infernouk » Thu Aug 25, 2016 10:44 am

Hey guys

Im working on a project and my CPU is hitting 80% with some audio stutter.

I was wondering if theres a way to identify plugins CPU usage like i can in other DAW's.

My only other change recently is a new audio interface but I cant think why that would affect CPU usage.

Cheers!

Audio interface can cause stuttering (especially if only at 80%). Do you have all the ASIO drivers and stuff?

Freeze single tracks and you may identify problematic plugins

This is one of those things where ableton tops other daws by simply not giving you what you need and making you think creatively for a workaround.

Thank you abe.
