Well like I said even with everything muted, once I load a new instance of the same synth it will consider any previously loaded instance and count it for total CPU load - for ex: I'm using a CPU hog synth (on my computer) - let's say Arc5 - 3 instances will suck most of the CPU. Once I render to wave, mute the playlist tracks, mute the synth instances in pattern section, click smart disable and all the other tricks to lower down the CPU, I get let's say 4 - 5% CPU load. BUT if I open a 4th instance of Arc5, the CPU spikes to full load. So it would be good to know how I can delete the first 3 instances of Arc5 and replace them with the rendered wave files (that I actually know, heh), but at the same time being able to recall those deleted instances if I want to modify something...that's my current issue/dilema/whatever you wanna call it...
Please ask for support in Looptalk - http://forum.image-line.com/viewforum.php?f=100 I will explain what to do there.
