PowerCore: DSP usage and sample rate support for all plug-ins

Question

Please provide an overview over how much DSP each PowerCore plug-in consumes and which sample rates they support.

Answer

Please note the following:

  • The figures below are for the 150 mHz DSPs in the PowerCore Compact / FireWire / PCI mkII / Express / Unplugged.
  • Despite what the percentages indicate below, you can run a maximum of 8 plug-ins per DSP - meaning 16 plug-ins (2 times 8) on Compact, 32 plug-ins (4 times 8) on a FireWire / PCI mkII / Express / Unplugged and 64 plug-ins (8 times 8) on X8 / 6000.

  1. When linear phase mode is enabled only mono channel can be processed.
  2. Number of voices that can be used is limited to max. 5.
  3. Internal Error occurs.
  4. Intonator HS and VoiceModeler are 'mono only' plug-ins. Under some hosts, like Cubase, it is possible to instantiate mono plug-ins on stereo tracks - however, this is not recommended with VoiceModeler and Intonator HS.
  5. UnWrap requires 1 full DSP at 44.1 / 48 kHz and 2 full DSPs at 88.2 / 96 kHz.
