I've had high idling CPU activity for a few years now, but it's suddenly got a lot worse. I'll open a session and hit play. The CPU monitor it probably sitting at about 10-20%. I'll work for about half an hour, editing, mixing or simply listening. CPU use gradually climbs up to 4 or more of my 8 cores being at 100% and playback grinds to a halt. I make sure an audio track is selected, disable all plugins, move the playhead to an empty portion of the arrangement and try playing again. The cores are maxed no matter what I do, and remain so for several minutes, until they suddenly fall back down to normal levels. Doesn't seem to matter whether it's a simple or very involved session. Anyone else?
