Multicore performance in WL11

Hi,
I was hoping that WL11 will be able to use more than one processor unit at once when rendering audio from a montage. As many of us I have an 18Core processor and don’t like the idea that Wavelab is using only one of the cores. I there any setup or switch where I can make the rendering process a little bit quicker?
kind regards,

WaveLab 11 uses multiples cores to render montage. But if your plugins are slow or are put one after the other in the audio chain, the multiple cores can’t be an advantage (like in any other DAW).

Hi,
thanks for your reply. It seems that, on my system, Wavelab in fact doesn’t use only one core while rendering, but only one at once. After a few seconds it switches to a different core and uses only that one.
kind regards,

Again, it all depends only on what can be processed in parallel.
If “C” needs to be processed before “B” that itself needs to be processed before “A”, then this can’t happen in parallel.
Hence this depends on clip and track layouts.
eg. two clips playing at the same time, can be processed in parallel.

Okay,

thanks for the reply, I understand.
Still I would find it useful if Wavelab would render an ausio montage with f.e. 10 tracks in 10 processes at once (using 10 cores) instead of of rendering the tracks one after another using only one core at a time.

thanks and best wishes,
