CPU use in Bias FX newer versions


  • A2

    Has anyone noticed CPU use going up and render times being much slower in recent versions of Bias FX desktop? Trying to figure if its a unique computer setting I have or if its really happening. Seems to go on both my home and work computers, but perhaps I have a setting in common with them as well

    I have around 20-25% CPU usage in Studio One 4.1.1 on both a Macbook Pro and an iMac Pro, both with macOS High Sierra 10.13.6. In Reaper 5 it’s similar and with BIAS Amp 2 too.

    When it comes to performance, the BIAS plugins absolutely suck, at least on Mac. And it doesn‘t matter if I use VST or AU, though the later has a slightly lower CPU count, maybe 2%.
