    I know I posted this question in my previous thread, but i really need more opinions on the subject (so please moderators, don't ditch this thread).

    2 mono channels, with no plugs, are as CPU consuming as a stereo channel?

    I have no idea wether this is still applicable or not. But waaaayyyy back when, when Logic first introduced Universal Track Mode (v. 3.0 or 3.5?) the manual clearly stated that a stereo track (using UTM) took up 150% percent as much resources as a regular mono track. Whereas two mono tracks obviously takes up 200% of the resources of a single mono track.

    There was a nice increase in horse power on the machines of the day at that time with this new feature. In today's modern world; I doubt it would make any significant difference. But that's a purely subjective observation just based on the "feel" of the program.

    I agree.. the manual stated that a single stereo track used less cpu that 2 mono instances.
