For me, the VST Performance Meter has always been pretty useless. It’s supposed to display disk overages vs. ‘performance’ overages (whatever -that- means). Usually (again FOR ME) it’s inaccurate–displaying overs when the sound appears fine.
But the main thing is that I look at it and go “so what?” It doesn’t -help- me in any way.
What I -want- is a breakdown (by VST or VSTi or other subsystem) by PERCENTAGE OF UTILISATION as one gets in the UAD Performance meter (if you have a UAD-1 or UAD-2) -or- in the Windows Task Mgr.
I need to see -which- plugs are using the most resources—either causing CPU overs or disk overs. THAT would help me.
