I tried a demo of this plugin and on my Imac (El capitan) it is very CPU intensive (30 %)
For comparison, It uses 3 times more CPU than Uhe Diva (10 % CPU).
It is a old 2007 imac but it runs fluently most of my plugins.

The same here on Win 10 CPU i5. DAW Studio One 4.6.1, no plugin loaded exept DC. Although DAW is not running, CPU Meter is nervously jumping back and forth from 10% - 32%.

if the gui is closed, cpu should be better.
I get 1-2% on a i9 cpu with open gui, 5-6% while gui is open.
the „animate wt draw“ option is there to tame the cpu a bit. retina drawing is just pretty intense, plus all the VA circuitry.
