Thank you for the feedback, but it does not help without some details.Thunderbolt1000T wrote:It has nothing to do with my machine, since I don't have this problem running similar effects such as compressor, SC4, etc. This plugin is just uber slow.
SC4 is a LADSPA plug-in, written in C++
Chris's Compressor and AGC are Nyquist plug-ins.
Nyquist and C++ are very different.
I've just tested a track with both Chris's Compressor and this AGC plug-in. On my Linux machine, Chris's Compressor took 19 second (averaged over 3 runs) and this AGC plug-in took 17 seconds averaged over 3 runs.
I presume that you are not running Linux. There could be some platform dependent performance issues.
The processing time for the AGC plug-in depends partly on the settings, particularly the "Gain Reaction Speed". A faster reaction time time uses a lot more processing.
