Duende V3 software introduces 'Hybrid Core Processing'. This allows the processing load to be shared between the Duende and your host machine, so allows you to run more plug-ins with greater stability. Some processing always takes place on the Duende hardware, and some on the Host computer. Therefore, Duende V3 plug-ins will use more CPU power than previous versions of the software.
Why does my Duende use more CPU power now I have upgraded to V3 software?
