I hope he's not breaking any rules with updates during the challenge.
"During the voting period you may update your entry but updates must be bug fixes ONLY. You are NOT allowed to add new features or rework existing ones during the voting period".

Depends on whether reduced CPU demand is considered a bug fix or a new or reworked "feature".

I'd say it probably falls closer to a bug fix but then I'm not the judge.

I think CPU demand was reduced by removing oversampling.

Why do you think that? It sounds the same to me, although I've not done any 1:1 comparisons with each version. And if that is how he's achieved it, it just shows that oversampling wasn't worth the overhead.

Gotcha, I'd missed that. Still, what I said above applies - GR-8 doesn't need the oversampling, it sounds really good without it.
