question about SWAM's CPU usage (when idle)

Post by dchapiro » Mon Jan 09, 2017 6:08 am

Hi - I am running the cello with Garageband, on a Mac-mini (2.7GHz, I7 dual processor, 8GB of DDR3 RAM at 1333MHz), w/El Capitan.

When GB is idling by itself it uses about ~15% of the CPU, and when it's GB+Cello they use ~45% of the CPU (unlike most other applications, which use negligible cycles when idle). Does anybody know how to reduce the idling load of GB+Cello?

Also, couldn't the SM plugin notice when there's been no activity for say a few minutes and turn into a state in which it uses few or no CPU cycles? (or maybe after a time limit set by the user)
