    Should I go with Ryzen, or i9?

    Or can it at least be overclocked (serious)? I have a relatively simple patch I'm working on and it gets close to or over 90% without doing much more to it. I've already followed the tips in the Wiki to lower its consumption. Having to buy a whole other unit at least twice the cost I'll get selling this one isn't really a practical solution to a problem on this scale.

    A simple patch shouldn’t get close to 90%.

    Are you using reverb and stereo hi res cab blocks? 2 drive blocks? Assuming you’ve brought the cab block to Normal res and the Reverb to normal and a low Echo density?

    It was at 89% with the same settings yesterday. What made it drop?

    There are a few other ways to possibly reduce the CPU% load? We would need to have a look at the preset itself to offer better advice. There could more efficient ways to accomplish the same sonic results with less blocks?

    No idea, but change those cab blocks to Normal res and you’ll get a lot of CPU back.

    And dial back the density on the Reverb block, set the quality to Normal there too.

    I can tell a clear difference with the UltraRes. Maybe because I already put money down on it. And I never really sit down to read anything through and through out of fear of forgetting mostly everything. I made this patch out of pure intuition that wanted a single setting that could do brutal, punchy, and bright while retaining clarity and sustain and little mix work to do after into a simple FX template/chain (so I can finally create the music that I dedicated my entire academic and personal life to be able to since twelve, typing this in my late-twenties. No, I don't care that it's on a computer in my parents' house. I've already experienced an IRL vagina with each of my senses and what it could do for me in terms of happiness. No, I don't remember much about it, but why bother spending life working toward something forgettable anyway? Even if I don't succeed I would have rather tried to stimulate more heads than just one of my own).

    I named the cabs that because I didn't know what else to at the time. All settings:

    You could use one Stereo Ultra Res cab instead of 2 separate.

    You didn't read something because you were afraid you were going to forget it?

    If I try to learn everything at once, as opposed to learning something one thing at a time when it's needed (Why I use the Axe Wiki instead of the manual).

    Posting the preset would be more useful. But looking through a few of the dozens of screenshots, I see lots of (redundant?) things adding to the CPU% load.

    When your working from your parents house on creating the music you’ve devoted your entire academic and personal life on since age 12, there simply isn’t time to read to remember, or for IRL vagina.

    There is only time to try to fit an i9 chipset into an Axe II

    Let’s stick to the topic at hand please. The analogies are getting distracting.
