I use a Ryzen 2500U laptop (8GB RAM, Win10) - not super powerful of course, but now with the Version 2.0 update, Voltage Modular is the only synth I have performance issues with. To compare, I can use ten or more instances of complex Arturia Pigments 2 sequence patches with my CPU usage barely exceeding 50%.
It has become basically impossible for me to playback any sequence presets in VM now. The CPU meter in FL Studio hits 99% and I get severe audio stuttering. Same thing happens in REAPER, although REAPER's CPU meter only displays 15% CPU usage. This was not a problem at all with VM 1.XX. Even some really simple polyphonic user presets consisting of one oscillator, one envelope controller and one amplifier now eat 50% of my CPU. This was definitely not the case before. Hope the weak Ryzen performance will be addressed asap. I wasn't very happy with the VM 1.XX performance on my machine already but it remained largely usable. Now VM has actually become unsusable for me in most cases as I am really not into the bounce-in-place workflow. Of course it's awesome that we get such an expansive free update, I just cannot enjoy it at this moment.
I'm told the next update will have some additional tweaks that should help. The software devs apparently found some really good CPU optimizations that will make a difference.
the newest version, 2.0.15, fixes a lot of cpu problems in cubase pro 10.5.12 (on windows 10 pro (1909)). i can play my own presets, and the cpu usage was never so low. but it sometimes erratic, one preset won't play without dropouts (uses two little harmony's and some other stuff not much, no complex patching, only the sampler and the chord module from... o all those developers.).
i have i7 6700K, doesn't seem much in these days, but still it can hold big patches from voltage modular, softube modular and reaktor.
my own built desktop, perhaps that makes it much easier to have properly working system, many factors. (i built my own desktops for 20 years or more, more.. and for others..). and still can add more synths...
i will wait for the next version. if it fixes that preset. or else i will go kayako...
bought the ms-20 vintage bundle (had the one year bundle), thanks for the special price, it is worth it. and bought another small bundle.
and bought already of course bought the vector and the vintage voice bundle. nice bundles, very nice... module count 344..... wow...
strange message perhaps, but it is also a way to say i like VM (and softube modular and reaktor blocks... why do i say this, here!), but VM is most workflow focused modular.
love the update!
o yes, but this is for support. when loading a preset, it takes sometime, that there aren't "clicks" (no asio overload), it seems that VM adjust itself... this can take 10 or 20 seconds or so.
but like i said; you mention a new version, with more cpu optimization, so i will wait. it can always backfire, an optimization...
and a put my trust in VM, i bought a lot.. no regrets, at all.. and my trust, that the problems will be resolved.
