No, he's right. There's some lack of optimization here. I have S1 installed on two computers - one is a stationary i7 and the other is my i5 laptop. Sadly, it's the i5 that sees more studio work lately and even a single iteration of 'room reverb', for example, on 'quality' mode creates CPU spikes of 90-100% periodically, causing buffer rundowns even though on 'perform' mode, for example, the usage is hardly 5%. I know that's why perform mode is there, but those spikes are a clear sign for lack of optimization. Other than that... I don't do electronic stuff, so i find it hard to get excited about any of the new features?..
