  • Only 7 core are used on my 8 core Macpro 3 ghz

    Hello
    I have a song with VSL instrument based on the template given with the VE
    Logic is showing that only 7 core are used

    VERY STRANGE

    Any idea ?

    Is it a bug ?

    Is it a Logic or a VSL bug ?

  • assuming you are using VE as AU plugin ...

    finally the operating system decides how many cores are used for a certain application, however the application and further the plugin within the application can request more than one core to be used.

    in detail there are more restrictions related to the nature of threading processes (allow an application to use more than one core simultaneously) for audio which can also depend on another plugin (EQ, compressor, reverb, ect)

     

    so you might have run into a situation where threads could only spread across 7 cores ...

    and remember: only a CRAY can run an endless loop in just three seconds.
  • Hi Christian

    Thanks for your answer.
    I am using VI AU.

    Before using VSL I was using Kontakt2 with QLSO Platinum but with no EQ and no reverb, and I never saw this, all the processor where used and they where very very busy

    I have another little problem, I get a core audio overload the 1st time I play my song.

  • Hi Cyril.

    I used to have  serious overload problems using just EXS and Kontakt 3 instruments, and not many of them.   Would grind to a halt as many as 10 times when I first played a tune. I have had no trouble in recent times and have to assume that it was updating from OSX10.4.10 to 10.4.11.
