my test
10 track stereo 24 bit audio
each ch
waves cla 2a
waves cla plugged
waves cla guitars
waves cla drums
waves cla effects

but i have 8 core i7 i think pyramix use Using a maximum of %21 cpu. exampe 1 or max 2 core. missing 3-4-5-6-7-8-and HT cores...

please Please provide masscore support for all real and virtual cores next pyramix 12 or 13 but, i made same test other daws reaper cubes 9 and other, working perfectly using all cores. but i love pyramix. therefore i will wait next pyramix

please try with waves audio plugins 3rd plugins, put on track example 50 track stereo audio on mixer. after, give each channel 1 effect example
track 1 waves CLA drums
track 2 waves H-eq
track 3 waves H reverb
track 4
track5 ....track 50.. point to the same 50.

result= 50 track, and 50 insert plugins, goto ctrl+alt+del can see cpu task bar cpu usage %20 core 1. but, pyramix system usage is does not put all the cores into circulation. i did same test reaper, core 1 and 2-3-4-5-6-7-8 distribute the load equally, and I could still keep the effect on the right hand. I could open a lot more effects with reaper. pyramix is installed in core 1 and core 2

my dream is
I look forward to next pyramix
I want to all cpu core max performance with pyramix for 3rd plugins waves or any.

This drives me crazy as well. I built a new computer with an i7 6700k CPU - 32 GB of RAM and PMX is overloading with audio dropouts on 8 tracks with VST plugins. Checking Task manager and , like you, only a fraction of my resources are being utilized. I have to go through and turn off effects and remove the more hungry offenders.

I am still on V10.2 - but was hoping this might improve in 11

Same here issue here. I was told that native PMX only uses one core for all of its processing. I can see clearly in the task manager's performance pane that only one of my cores/threads are active, and all of the rest are idling.
