Logic 9 CPU usage

    Fighting with CPU redlining.

    Opened a new project. Basically a bass instrument, gtr instrument - not loaded up with effects. evb3 Hammond sim also.

    I opened a multiple tracked BFD2 session with 7 mono tracs and 3 stereo tracks. Loaded a bfd2 kit and played a bit onthe keyboard, nothing too complicated. Just testing to figure BFd2 out.

    CPU immediately redlines. Any ideas.

    Just for clarification the I use a Mac Mini -2009 2.4ghz, 8gbRam - so should ave decent horsepower.

    What is you I/O buffer size?

    Logic Preferences>Audio>General....

    If it's low, raise it.

    It's a balancing act:
    Low I/O for tracking reduces latency at the expense of cpu stress;
    High I/O for mixing which reduces cpu stress but increases latency if recording.

    Thanks-zipped it up to 1024 (from 128) and the redline want away- not sure who set it that low(the dog did it I bet). We'll see if latency Usa prob.
