Option to lower CPU usage...
« on: July 28, 2006, 09:03:06 AM »

I've been happily using SSP for awhile and it works great. I'd like to request a feature.

Can there be an option for reduced CPU load? Normally, I have two displays going: 1.3 octave RTA and oscilloscope. Both are running in dual channel mode, so I know I'm slamming the CPU.

SSP is always open on a second monitor during my Pro Tools sessions, both as a tool and as eye-candy for the clients. For those times when it's MOSTLY eye-candy, it would be great to reduce the load on the CPU.

Maybe screen updates every half second, or an option to sample the input audio only a fraction of the normal time.

If you have any ideas you want to beta test, I'm happy to try them.

The onscreen drawing in SignalScope Pro accounts for the significant CPU use of the program.

We are working on a more advanced analyzer that utilizes OpenGL for hardware-accelerated onscreen drawing that should significantly reduce the CPU load.  It's not official, yet, but a limited version of the new software may eventually replace SignalScope and SignalScope Pro.
