It's good to hear that it seems to be an isolated problem on my end. whew' I was thinking "no way this can be a CPU killer can it?"
I was beginning to feel like the wind was getting taken from underneath my sails!
I really a musician so I've always been sticking to tweaking inside synths themselves and straight playing to a channel in the arrange. But I've had some time off between projects and now I'm really getting into modular stuff and going outside of synths themselves as part of patch design/creative process.
Baby steps I guess? Like I said I may be going about this a weird way, but it makes logical sense to me so far with the routing. It took me awhile to narrow other problems down like timing issues and avoiding using Rewire. (the timing/triggering of somethings on Bidules end is horribly buggy when synced via Rewire) I wrapped my head around it enough to start really writing something and then the CPU troubles started as I finally started layering in more instruments in real practice..
I've been using Logic since version 5, and I'm really comfortable and speedy with everything. I wasn't exactly afraid of the environment, just didn't really have a use for it outside of the arp object. I love no matter how much you get to know the program, there's always more there learn. So this new fangled exploration of the environment and modular applications is really refreshing/inspiring to me... just got to make it work in real practice!
Thanks for all the help again... I'll be up all night trying to narrow this down.
Great forum BTW! Super helpful and focused, I can't believe I never really paid attention to it till now.
