PCM Reverb Performance Issues
Tried the 1.3.10 version. It did fix the open/close issues.
However, quite frankly, the efficiency of these plugins (same as v1.3.9) is garbage.
v1.3.8 and v1.3.7 were much better. They were in fact usable when you had many loaded into one Pro Tools session. 1.3.9 and now 1.3.10 are not.
We run a simple test:
11 stereo tracks with double lexicion plugins on all of them (random hall and concert hall). Hit play.
- 1.3.9 and 1.3.10 spike to 100% usage and halt the whole thing from even playing. This is with buffers set to maximum on a Pro Tools Ult 2021.10 HDX system.
- 1.3.8 plays completely fine (with around 20% usage -- steady). This is with even buffers set to 64 on a Pro Tools Ult 2021.10 HDX system.
Same test tried with an RME HDSPe MADI FX system (running Pro Tools again). Same issues.
What's gone wrong with Lexicon's plugin code? And is this going to be fixed in some kind of reasonable time?
It took forever for 1.3.10 to show up after 1.3.9. And to find out it still is problematic is disappointing. And it was bad enough that Lexicon changed the naming structure as it appears to Pro Tools between 1.3.8 and 1.3.9 where we had to rebuild all our templates (and know our older sessions will complain that the plugins aren't installed.) Feels very much like these plugins are ignored or put on the back burner in development over there. Used to love the plugins but slowly migrating away from them at the moment because of all these problems with (what seems) like no end in sight to get working versions again.
Eventually, 1.3.8 won't work on a macOS/new Apple hardware and that'll be it. And that day is coming soon -- really hoped 1.3.10 helped Eventide get its act together.
