Is there a setting to take advantage of a multi-core CPU?

Recommended Posts

I'm running a Core2 Quad - I notice that when processing, the CPU usage stays relatively low, hovers around 30%. Is there a setting to tell CW to take more full advantage of a multi-core processor?

Usually the installer is pretty good at detecting the CPU.

There is a setting in Aud.ini called ThreadSchedulingModel. Read about it here.

Verify or change the setting in Preferences > Audio > Configuration File. If this is not visible in preferences, click the Advanced radio button at the bottom of the preferences window.

1) Is this the CPU reading for your DAW or your PC? 

2) How many programs do you have running in your background?

3) What is your sample rate (yes this affects your CPU usage)

4) what is your driver mode setting? (yes this also affects your CPU, as the lower your buffers, the harder the CPU can work.)

30% may be the normal for your PC, DAW and project. Depending on how many tracks, plugins, automation, etc, etc you have goin on, the CPU will be working. 

If you are not having any problems and everything is running fine, then I would not worry about it. If you are dropping out and getting artifacts, then i would worry about it.
