If you want really cpu hungry, try MSF in FM mode with Unison and longer release times.
More BPM please

Iris 2 Probably the most cpu hungry(unoptimized) plugin I own.

well, you could ask what cpu/motherboard it has and google it
So you are going off topic again. Nah, it's a special server configuration. None have used for music. You seem a little irritated. :? You here to discuss CPU hungry vsti or to cause aggravate?
its not OT, we're talking about your cpu....

if you buy a pc without checking what it is (or anything for that matter) you're taking a big risk

do you even know what the cpu is?


you dont really need a thread here to do this "test" just load your biggest project and look at the cpu meter, or keep loading vsts etc etc

really, you're just wasting everyones time.

Seems to me you decided yourself to waste your time (on an online forum), nobody held a gun to your head and told you to participate in this thread :D

I don't have a suggestion as everything I use is pretty light on CPU, but I definitely understand where the OP is coming from. Getting old stock server hardware can give you a pretty hefty system at low cost. Servers where running 8-cores way before they hit the consumer market so go figure.

but you have no idea what his computer has inside, so it's all conjecture at this point.

if a person is going to ask a question on a public forum and then get shirty when someone asks a question back (without being rude) they don't really deserve any help

anyway, my point stands, it's a pointless thread. He can answer his own question if he has even the slightest idea how a pc works

RePro-5, Softube Modular.

But perhaps it would be best if you simply took your old project files - or even some demo projects if your DAW has those - and see how they work on the "new" machine? Looking at single plugin performance can be very misleading, especially on a multi-core server systems that you might not know (yet) how to optimise for realtime audio processing.

Playing a pad with a 5 note chord on Blue II or Serum should keep you cpu quite busy.
Or wait for Massive X :clown: .

Diva, Serum, Diversion, Repro-1/5, LuSH-101, Monark should give the CPU something to think about, depends on what settings somewhat, flick through some presets and you will soon get an idea. If you just want to cure your heatsink's thermal paste turn the multicore option off Lush and Diva.

Then again maybe that will just roast one core. Anyway these synths are the ones that I can struggle with on my very old machine.
