Why so much CPU usage?


Recommended Posts


I was wondering if this was normal behavior for Logic.

I have all apps on my main SSD drive.

I have an external USB3 drive for projects.

I have an external Thunderbolt2 drive for streaming samples.

I have a tune with 4 tracks. 

1 MIDI track with Una Corda.

2 MIDI tracks with Arturia Synclavier

1 Audio track.

I'm not running anything but the stock EQ and the RC48 reverb.

When playing back the tracks, my CPU is almost maxed out, but my disk meter barley moves.

I just got this brand new iMac and am kinda concerned about the CPU usage.

Any thoughts? Should I be worried?
