VK-2 and Expanse CPU inside RRP?

I wanna get more usage from VK-2 and Expanse, but they are so CPU heavy.

Has anyone compared how the CPU usage is if running them in RRP inside, say Ableton?

I think Ableton is about the worst DAW for CPU usage and VSTs etc. I think you'll get more CPU "value" from using those two synths in Reason.

It may be that if you use RRP in a very CPU-light DAW like Reaper, you can use more instances of VK-2 than you can in native Reason. Not sure how likely it is, though - not since the optimization update in Reason.
