I'm working on a project with alot of tracks, most of them are muted - but with a lot of plugins -

my question is - if i bypass a pug-in on a unused track will it free cpu usage- or

I must disable it completely ?

Correct. You could also simply mute the audio regions. When no audio stream reaches the plug-ins, they're inactive and they're not using any CPU. Another way to achieve this is to use the "CPU saving" track mute buttons (Under Preferences > Audio > General > Track Mute/Solo = CPU saving).

 

Then muting the track will save CPU.

thanks -

just to be clear -

muting a region - will not go through the plugin

but if i just mute a region it will keep "using" the cpu unless i change the configuration to "Track Mute/Solo = CPU saving"

but then muting will be less responsive..

right?

Muting a region = muting a track (in CPU saving mode) = no CPU is used.

 

Muting a channel strip = remote muting a channel strip from a track (in Remote Channel Strips setting) = the audio is streamed through the plug-ins (thus processed by the CPU) and then the output of the channel strip is muted.
