Ok then, thanks… I only really use a plugin editor for my virus or novation, so they would just use normal slots like other plugins. I have a motif now too though so may use the plugin for that also. We’ll see. Generally I use stand alone editors for my HW synths, or the ipad.
I just hope there is some workaround some day, like cubase opening plugins in a new process once the limit is reached…
(basically, say, cubase could be designed to let the FLS slots max out, with a permanent slot counter shown somewhere in the info line, then when the limit is reached, all plugins from then on could open in a separate process, until the limit is reached again, and so on).
The whole reason I want such a powerful machine is cause i use a LOT of plugins and high track projects… I know I will hit this FLS problem very very quickly if i switch to windows… That’s my main turn off at the moment… well, that and forced windows 10 updates.
