OK, maybe this has been discussed. But is that normal. I notice that I can peak out one core quickly with certain sounds- yet the other core appears to be doing nothing. Is Logic to blame- is there even an issue? I would like to be able to force Omni/Trilian to use both cores (especially for live playing). Or is it doing it behind the scenes?
Running on late 2009 MBP 2.53/4GB (in either 32 or 64 bit Logic Studio)
a channelstrip in Logic can only run on a single core.
If you use several parts in a multi you can spread the load to more cores by opening up another instance and assign the other parts to that instance.
Hmm, so this is not the case with me. In Logic (64bit)- I load up Omni and Trilian (and even EXS24)- I record enable all 3 and start playing- still only 1 core on the performance meter lights up. I will keep adding more instances to see if maybe Logic will auto-magically reallocate to the other core.
Eric/Spectrum- does your Logic setup show both bars going when you use your instruments?
Maybe-the reason is that you record enabled all 3 tracks.
Also-Logic doesnt use a 2nd core automatically. If the first core still has enough power to spare the additional plug ins will also run on the first one.
Rule of thumb is:
A plugin can only run on one core but one core can host several plugins.
