Space for Rent… Bypass Chain?
Conditional Paste or Paste Abandon
There’s been a few moments (absolutely my error), where I’ve had a bigger channel mixer process copied, I’ve pasted it where I needed the duplicate, but then later hit paste by accident. Of course this is when CPU usage is already heavy, so when this paste happens again, it brings the system to its knees and I’ll have to cycle power. Perhaps there should be a safeguard for pasting if CPU is above 80% usage with an added Y/N prompt? Or a way to abandon the paste at anytime when it’s crunching by pressing Cancel?
S3 “load” changed to “clear” function with an “are you sure y/n?” dialogue.
M1 to M6 - loads the quicksave listed above each button
Feels like this could be on the outmost immediate access S3 menu to quickly rename, and re-init could go into the menu dive?
Bypass / Disable
If system pref is set to disable, maybe this should be consistent when hovering over the unit header, so bypass would instead say “disable”
Also, reporting back on CPU usage while global bypass pref is set to disable:.
I have a single chain up that has 2 x channel mixers, within each, a custom unit with a bunch of processes.
up and running this is all taking 63% CPU (48k 0.3.4)
If I bypass (disable) a channel mixer, CPU drops to 55%.
If I bypass (disable) the sample player WITHIN the custom unit, within that disabled mixer, CPU drops to 29%!
If i delete the same channel mixer along with everything within, CPU drops to 28%
So maybe it’s the sample player/slicer that’s not getting disabled properly?
