I’m having trouble understanding the options under “Engine / Threads”. The manual on the website says:
It is recommended to begin with 1 thread, and if you experience audio hiccups, try increasing the thread count by 1. Continue adding threads until no hiccups occur. The maximum recommended number of threads is the number of physical cores in your machine. For example, a quad-core machine would likely maximize the number of modules by using 4 threads.
But how do you increase (or decrease) the thread count? The manual doesn’t say (at least I couldn’t find any instructions on how to do that).
Secondly, can someone explain the options “lowest CPU usage” and “most modules”? They seem to be mutually exclusive (if you select one, the other is unselected). But what exactly do they do?
And third, I have a quad-core processor. I assume that’s why I see 4 lines numbered from 1 to 4 when I click on “Threads”, is that correct? Or do the numbers mean something else? However, I can only select “lowest CPU usage” or “most modules” on the first two lines; the other two are blank. Does that mean I’m only using 2 of the 4 cores?
