I’ve been using GA SE4 up until I decided to purchase GA5 yesterday.
The way I use it is by having multiple instances running per project, I was shocked to find out that GA5 uses far more CPU then SE4. I didn’t expect such a big jump.
I’ve provided comparisons, please see attached image.
I loaded 12 empty instrument tracks into an empty project and then made note of the CPU usage. I did this separately for both SE4 & GA5.
I thought CPU use was to be improved with full product versions not to mention latest versions. This isn’t very welcome and somewhat disappointing considering I’ve just spent £153 on GA 5.
