gizmo~ and maxed out CPU

October 7, 2013 | 11:09 am

The patch I am working on right now has a lot to do. I have two separate FM synths (poly~ implemented), a granular synth, reverb (gigaverb~ – gen~ example), and a 6 voice harmonizer w/delay using gizmo~.

The harmonizer seems to be sucking up the most CPU. Is there a way to turn it off when I am not using it in order to save CPU? When I turn on the patch it immediately jumps to 20%.

The problem comes in when I am running some MIDI files through my synths and the tempo really starts to fluctuate when the CPU meter starts hitting 50% or more.
