Topic: Is there a difference?

  1. #1

    Question Is there a difference?

    I am just trying to find out - if i were to load 8 instruments in one instance of GPO, or one instrument in 8 different instances of GPO, is there a difference in the useage of processor power - and if so, how much difference?

    I was trying to find out if there was any way of using the technique of building an environment shown in one of the forum articles, where you load the instruments but turn the channel off until you are going to use it. It obviously works in logic with EXS 24 instances, but can it be done using GPO/JABB instances????

    In my experience,inactive instruments in GPO don't use any CPU power worthy of mention, they only eat up the memory.

    I had this same question some time ago and did some experiments. There is a difference, though it is slight. Your second scenario will use just a little bit more of the CPU, probably not enough to worry about, unless things are very tight.
