exporting only takes 10% CPU

Post by The Carpet Cleaner » Fri Apr 14, 2017 11:14 pm


I have a freaking 1700x AMD with 8 cores, and when I export tracks, or audio interviews for clients that sometimes are 45 minutes, the export takes ages.

But when I check windows management app, it shows that albeton live takes only 10% CPU... I could run a game, or handbrakes to compress 1 video, and do so many things in parrallell.

But I would like the export to go faster, is there a way to tell Live to take more CPU, like 60% or 70% instead of juste 8 or 10% ?

Cheers :)

Hmm, have you got any External Instrument or, External Effect devices in use? Because they will really shaft your dingo (technical term). Those things will slow it all down to render in real time. Usually my renders are about 2x to 4x the speed of reality.
