Default ReaPower, test your rig

I think it could be nice for people to see, how different setups perform.
So i made this little test file. Just Put it in you Bradsuck folder. It will use one of the soundfiles from this one.
I uses ReaFir, stillwells MajorTom and EvenHorizon.
Just click on the track, ctrl-c, ctrl-v to add tracks.
The track amount is where the play is stable and thereīs no clicks, so though you can add more, they donīt count if you get clicks.
EDIT: Use the Taskmanagerīs cpu ussage.

Hereīs my results:
Reaper ver 1.14
@64 25 trks max cpu 68% Running reaper with realtime priority
@64 8 trks max cpu 6% Running reaper with normal priority
@128 33 trks max cpu 81%
@1024 37 trks max cpu 96%



Machine specs is:
Cpu: Intel Core2 duo 6700
MotherBoard: Intel Rogercity DG965RY
Ram: 2x512mb 667MHz
Graphic: ATI radeon X1300
Soundcard: RME hdsp, digiface.
Procces: TC Powercore


On my laptop i get:
Reaper ver 1.14
@1024 11 trks max cpu 97%

Machine spec is:
Hp pavilion zv5000
Athlon64 3400+
1 gig ram
ASIO4ALL using internal sound.

-----------------------------------
If everyone could post like:

Results:
reaper ver (this is because reaper prob change over time)
@64 tracks max cpu (Take it from the taskmanager ussage.)
@128 tracks max cpu
@1024 tracks max cpu

Machine specs.
------------------------------

Iīve chosen 64,128 and 1024 as the most interesting specs. Because lot of things happen between 64 and 128 regarding optimizing the machine. And 1024 is a good average mixing latency.
Be aware that to gain good results @64, your machine needs to be optimized well.
I know this is not a scientific test, but itīs nice for comparing and for people that wanīt a new machine.

Is this using REAPER's internal Performance Meter? I find the whole concept of "190%" quite strange. Wouldn't it be better to use Task Manager to measure these?

Cheers,

Malcolm.

Yes, it the Reaper meter.
Yeah, letīs use the Taskmanager instead. Iīll update my cpu use tomorrow.

Isn't 190% due to the two processors?

Yep. Iīve have changed the cpu % to the taskmanager cpuussage now.
