Been using Cakewalk when I first used Vital and I found Vital to use so much CPU that I found my CPU crying with just one instance of Vital with complex patches. As much as I loved Vital, I could only use it sparingly and I find it hard to get inspired to use it with such limitation.
Then, I made a switch to Studio One Artist. And WTH? Vital used much less DSP and I can now layer multiple instances of Vital supersaws for those fat modulated chords, then another for the reese bass and one more for pads.
I wonder why this is so?
