MultiRack Benchmarks

The table below indicates the number of plugin racks and plugins that can be inserted into MultiRack and loaded to the SoundGrid Extreme server before the system reaches DSP overload (85%) or fails to play audio fluently (clicks, dropouts, corruption).

The maximum number of plugins that can be tested given system limitations is 512 (64 MultiRacks) for either mono or stereo. Plugin benchmark results may vary slightly from one system setup to another. While most plugins perform most efficiently at 44.1 kHz, a few perform as or even more efficiently at 96 kHz thanks to their upsampling or to algorithms that do not depend on sample rates.

* Plugin’s peak DSP usage level is much higher than its average level. Make sure to monitor peak levels on the DSP meter.
