GPU works for me so far!

Just downloaded and installed Pro 10 latest build. Before I did, I took a 1 minute 20 second mp3 of a song and did an unmix at best quality setting using previous SL10 Pro. . With my Ryzen 3700x it took 90 seconds. Then I installed new version, made sure to set to GPU and repeated the test. My graphics card is Nvidia 1080ti with 11GB Ram, not the fastest by any means. It did it in 10 seconds. Excellent! Thanks Robin. Eddie at Stealth Recording Studio, Glasgow

Did a 4 minute 20 second song in about 35 seconds. Great. BUT: First time I tried it, Spectralayers got to 93% and vanished. On reloading I tried again and it worked, but screen went to black at one point and returned.

On repeating the tests, it seems to settling down. Maybe my graphics card was just surprised to be doing audio work.

Hi, I’ve also tested GPU support and for reverb or noise removing, or unmix song I got very, very good results for my RTX3060 (e.g. reverb removing from 20 minutes file took 28 minutes for CPU, but only 3 minutes for GPU).

One thing is interesting - I’ve tested also “Noisy Speech” and got for both (CPU and GPU) the same time. Does “Noisy Speech” use GPU support? Could you test on your audio and PC?

Noisy Speech and Voice Denoiser with Background: Noise are not yet GPU accelerated. This will come with patch 2.

Ok, thank you, Robin, for the information!

Hello Eddie,

Thanks for your test feedback re SPL PRO 10. How did you set SPL10 PRO to work with your GPU.
I checked the options menu of the software but can´t find any information about that, unfortunately. Thanks in advance!

Trying the Patch 1 update with my (old) GPU. Unfortunately it crashes.
I am using the latest drivers from AMD 21.4.1
Any Suggestions?

Go to Preferences/system and it is listed there.

@Heiko_Grein your screen capture doesn’t list any GPU.

@Hooby2 your GPU is way too old to be supported.

All: please check the list of supported GPUs in the documentation : System Preferences

@Robin_Lobel

It is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.

Not sure if this is in compliance though.

Thanks in advance

Yes, a GeForce GTX 1050 works. Make sure to have the latest NVIDIA drivers installed.

What GPU do you have?

Thanks! Will check. Best Heiko

An old 9700k and Gtx1650 : with a 53 min 48khz stereo file loaded :

Unmix levels 45 sec’s
unmix components 2.40 sec’s

Great stuff , even thou i did have to redo all my preference’s after updating

Just unmixed an 11.37min mp3 file on two gpus in my system . The AMD Vega 64 took 2.07
mins.
And Nvidia GTX 1080 took 2.24
mins . But that is one impressive part, the other is I can Hear the Stereo in the Unmixed Drums which I didnt hear in any unmixed sound until now
. Also the Vega 64 to me, sounds better. Just to add, all settings at
High Quality,
CPU INTEL E5 2669v4 22Core took 15.08 mins.

… Are there any GPU tweaks we can do ?

I have downloaded the S10 pro update and have updated my GPU drivers. (I do have nVidia Geforce MX130 on my laptop - I know thats nothing special, but I am seeing a approx 40% speed improvement with functions like unmix drums / unmix levels / unmix components. Unmix song at Best quality takes twice as long using GPU, so for me CPU for that one seems the way to go

What my question is are there any GPU settings or tweaks that would aid in the AI process at the user end ?. I did notice that 3D rendering on my system has a quality or performance setting which you can adjust - probably unrelated, but it did get me thinking, are there any adjustments that I can do ?, as I don’t know what GPU areas aid in the AI computing, thought I’d ask. :slight_smile:

Not really, those settings you mention are related to graphic quality, but for AI processing you won’t find driver settings. The only thing you could do is overclock your GPU, but I wouldn’t go that way on a laptop.

Hi Robin. No problems, … I thought others might be interested that I’ve seen some improvements even on my weeny system :slight_smile:

Cheers.
