Will such audio drop outs disappear when rendering to .wav? There the time it takes to process everthing doesn't really matter, right?

May I ask, where CPU (and/or resource) efficiency being such an important topic, that this topic be summarized with respect to MULab's CPU efficiency?

I know it's an old topic, but I thought I'd chip in with my findings. Testing on my laptop (i7-7500 2.70GHz) I compared MuLab 7.4.11, FL Studio 20.02 and Zynewave Podium 3.2.7.

For the test I incrementally added instances of my most CPU-hungry vst (Poly-Ana) with each instance playing a 3-note chord, until the playback started to distort. Both FL Studio and Podium choked at 11 instances. MuLab manages 12 comfortably, almost 13. On the windows task manager MuLab averaged at around 52%, FL Studio 69% and Podium 68%.

I know there's all kind of factors which affect this, so it's not particularly scientific, but thought I'd share these results.

I bought the Virtual CZ synth and had weird problems with the CPU going into overload after a about 30 minutes of use. I've given up with it now. I contacted the guy who made it but we were unable to sort it out.
