Cubase 8 StudioEQ taxing processor

I have never had any issues with computer going quiet and need to process sound before picking up
again, a temporary sound dropout during playback. But have gotten it the last days, and just realised i’ve
started using StudioEQ as a gain plugin (minus or plus). Could it be so it is excessively hard taxing on the processor?

in short: is StudioEQ more processor hungry than expected? Seems like my problems of dropouts are coming from it.



I don’t notice any performance change, when I start to use StudioEQ on my system. Especially, if it’s only one StudioEQ.
