I’ve had an unexpected shock seeing quite poor performance with this setup.
Running at 88 Khz and 1024 buffer, the Core audio seems to provide performance not even touching 1%, whereas switching to AXR4T interface the performance jumps up to 25%+ !
This test was run using just a few tracks duplicated of a stock plugin.
Could it be the macbook driver is better and the Steinberg AXR4 driver just isnt up to the job? I see people posting crazy track counts with very little cpu usage.
Can anyone shed light on this?
Thanks in advance
