Holy cow, that's insane!

Thanks for taking the time to run this test, jelmet; truly appreciated!

So, this means I could run 35-40 instances using 11 kernels programs with a DSPBUFFER of 2048 (you should try to lower your 8192 to 2048 since more latency requires more CPU... maybe 2048 is a better setting for 512 buffer size?), at 96kHz... awesome!

Thanks again!

Nice Jera!

I saw someone saying 100 instances of Nebula on a i7, looks it's not possible to have that much Nebulas going on based on Jera tests... do you guys think that we could gain how much % using w7 64bit?
Cheers,
Fabio

Keep in mind that one instance of Nebula is not necessarily equal to another. The test in this thread was utilizing some of the chunkiest programs available (11 kernel programs). But if you had done the test with smaller programs the results would have been quite different. So it is possible that someone had 100 instances of Nebula open on an i7 (I've not seen that claim but if it was made I have no reason to doubt it), just not 100 11-kernel instances.

Nice to know. Thing is I end up using programs with a lot of kernels too... Pretty soon I will test myself, putting up a monster i7 like his this month, will see.

cheers,

So far most 11 kernel libraries are sampled at 96khz (AlexB/CDSM/RM). Bump your session to 96khz and watch your Nebula count plummet to about 15-25 tops.

At the cost of an increment in quality in the high end (4kHz-14kHz) :)

I was fine working at 48kHz until I heard 96kHz programs at their native sample rate in a full mix (tests on 2 or 5 tracks never impressed me and it was until that day when I recorded and mixed a song at 96kHz that I realized what was the problem, in theory). Going to 96kHz is one of the best changes I've done in the last 5 years (music-wise).

I also did a project using Nebula at 96K a while ago... I remember liking it very much! :D
But I don't have anything to work with at 96K now... I'll see if I have the backups in hand...

Ok guys,

Another test after I've worked on a few mixes:
At 96Khz I could get only 8 channels with those programs and the CPU was at almost 90%.
If I add another 3 instances on another channel it starts to crap out.
See for yourself!
I'll try as Mercado_Negro said, lowering the DSPBUFFER and see if it gets any better!

Now, the setup and the whole picture ;)

Ok,

With DSPBUFFER at 2048 my cpu usage increased!
