VCV Rack 0.6.2c Performance on Linux


#1

Hi there!

Is there any multi core support in this version for linux? Currently my Ryzen 2700x has not so much to do and VCV Rack is running out of performance. I can also see that not one core is fully under load.

Thanks!

I’m using the alternate version from https://github.com/Rcomian/Rack on Linux (Manjaro), and it’s working nicely so far.

Thanks, this looks great! I already have found this in another thread but unfortunately with my little Linux knowledge I can’t compile this from github. Perhaps someone can help me out with installing this for Linux Mint.

Go to https://github.com/Rcomian/Rack/releases, download the Linux version, unzip it wherever you prefer, then go into the directory and double-click Rack or open a terminal window in that directory and type “./Rack”

Fantastic! This was easy. Setting to 8 threads for the 8 cores of 2700x gave me additionally 400 mS.
Thanks!
