Global CPU meter
Currently the CPU meter is only accessible from the settings page. I’ve had a couple of instances where a muted plugin is consuming a lot of CPU. This causes glitches and eventually all audio stops. An always visible CPU would help me stay on top of runaway FX.
Hopefull it will come..
“11, DSP Display. Cpu.. readout on all pages, not just in setting. In the transport area.
@vincent said: Useful yes.”
Options! Always need more options! :-)
Wouldn’t want it no where near the size of the one in settings. lol
Something around the size of the iPad battery icon is good, even half that height.
AUM’s implementation of it, is another option..
Yes a bar is complete nonsense, just have a percentage readout, easy to read and unobtrusive.
eg (Bank1: 30% / Bank2: 5% / Bank3: 25% / Aux1: 30%)
Sometimes I load up AU effects on a particular bank (or AUX track) and forget they are there... hogging all my precious CPU cycles!! When the sounds starts to stutter, it would be great to see a breakdown of which banks/tracks are consuming the most CPU
A bit like task manager in Windows
But yeah CPU and RAM usage per bank, maybe even a table that you could open down to show AU plugins usage per bank too, its often 1 plugin causing issues, would be a great.
In the mean time, the cpu readout/metre could be in all browser pages, instead of the (extra) tap on the settings button. So it would always be 1 click away..
(Maybe not the store page, but who knows)..
