CPU spike after transition for no reason

Post by japhx » Mon Oct 19, 2020 7:10 am

Hello there,

I’m using Lenovo Legion 7i with 8-core CPU, and in my track, at the breakdown transition when many of the tracks stopped playing, and only a few continued playing, there was an unexplained spike in CPU from 27% to 75-100% shortly after the transition, causing some sound crackling.

I am able to reproduce this cpu spike & sound crackling everytime I play 1/4 bar before the transition. I read somewhere that there is a known issue where “unmuting/muting a synth track with a lot of automation and at the known RME low latency could cause a spike.” I think this might be the case!

Does anyone have any idea how I can tackle this issue?

Thank you all very much!
