CPU usage much higher compared to other amp suits in Helix Native Posted August 6, 2019 Hey soundog, thanks for your help! I'll totally make use of freeze tracks again. This was something that helped me in the past when I used an old laptop. I'll also try to adapt the other tricks mentioned. Luckily FL Studio has something called "smart disable" where it automatically switches off plugins not in use and turns them back on when needed. This should also help keeping the CPU headroom a bit more stable.
