Q: Is it possible that the CPU spikes occur in rackspaces that don’t have an instance of a faulty plugin in them?

A: It is possible that the plugin implementation has some other non-audio threads running, possibly running erroneously at high priority. Those would be running all the time, regardless of whether the plugin was in the active rackspace.


Q: I’m looking at gig and rackspace files; do I need all these widgets in my rackspaces?
