LogicPro not releasing CPU on auxes??


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon,


I spent several hours tracing through an issue here - that any CPU load generated by a reverb placed on an Aux isn't being released after playing stops entirely.


For example, I was playing live with EW Hollywood Strings, sending reverb to an aux bus. When playing live, the CPU activity spikes, as expected, but never falls back to zero once my playing stops. This is true even if I switch to highlight a no input/no output track. I was able to isolate it to the presence of the reverb on the aux - it's as though, once awakened, the reverb keeps cranking and calculating.


As it turns out, someone else found the exact same thing and documented it very well here, albeit on a larger test scale:https://www.logicprohelp.com/viewtopic.php?t=151053


Now, I'm still on Logic Pro 10.5.1. Anyone happen to know if this was fixed in later versions of Logic? Appreciate any thoughts on this one.....

This might have something to do with the nature of Software Instruments and "Live Mode", where the computer has to be ready for extemporaneous signal. The same goes with AUX tracks in my experience. It's gotten better over the years, but I can't speak to whether or not the issue has been entirely addressed in later versions of Logic.
