So even with my i9-9900k I can get Diva to max out my CPU. Is it with the patch to kill all known sound...No. It does sound nice but even so usability is paramount. To be fair most patches fall into 1 or 2 DSP bars which is fine. Its a nice synth and I bought it on a whim. On my old PC (AMD-6500 piece of s**t!) I couldn't even run any patches even the simple basses sent me into the red.
Looking forward to Props getting that VST performance improvement now. Which is one of the reasons I bought this.
In the Reason preferences, do you have Hyperthreading enabled? I found that doesn't help performance in any cases for me, and really hurts Diva. I'd recommend Hyperthreading off, but Multicore on in Reason, and hit the Multicore button in Diva. That gave me the best performance overall.
Thanks ScuzzyEye that does help with Hyperthreading on in Diva and Mulitcore off in Reason. Though I'm not back to one DSP for all patches! LOL I guess I'm expecting a lot. I still will hope for A) Props to get an improvement to VST performance which they are working on apparently B) U-he to release an updated Diva with tighter code. Not likely as it is old now and they may be testing something that burns an water cooled i9 to the ground!
This Diva certainly wants it all! Greedy synth it certainly is. I'm pretty sure when I trialed Dune 3 recently it didn't eat this much CPU. I know its a different sound but Dune 3 sounded pretty cool to me even if it does lean towards Trance and EDM.
Reveal Sound Spire that I have is still one of my fav's the only issue is the crazy stuck notes thing which at times drives me nuts. Someone should add a kill audio button to that synth.
I know people get on Props cases a lot but Europa doesn't do any of this stuff does it. Neither does Grain.Next thing for Props is to create a RE called Antiserum or better still auntyserum. One which has 521 oscillators per note and 9x unison (slightly beats Dune3!) has Moses mode rather than God mode, as God is too all powerful (After the Diva experience!) . So a button that says nearly high quality! It should also have furry dice in the top right of the skin and the 1st two patches should be sports exhaust and sub-woofer (designed for DnB tracks obviously!)
Yes I know lay off the coffee dude and get back to your Diva! Or should that be snickers...oh quiet now!
