Does deactivating eq’s,compresor’s, gates, reverbs etc in a template take away their CPU load?

Why you don’t just test it? I would say yes :wink: pres F12 to see the load and activate and deactivate so you should see what happends.

Yes.
Deactivating (rather than bypassing) an effect means that the effect isn’t processing the signal.
Bypassing (rather than deactivating) and effect means that the effect is still processing the signal in the background.

Also, if “Suspend VST3 plug-in processing when no audio signals are received” is checked in the preferences; then any effect will not process if there is no signal present (ie on a blank audio track or a region of silence).

True!
and too bad VSTIs can’t also do this when no MIIDI events are present.

But I guess (according to this thread) those VSTI’s would have to ‘unload’ and not just ‘de-activate’
for that to happen which is not very practical in realtime.

Instantaneous loading and unloading of VSTI’s would be a very nice feature.
Maybe in a future version of Cubase.
NOT! :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
