Not necessarilly a sound design question.. Everyone probably runs a multicore computer and since we are in the business of sound, we need to create a lot of mp3 files. Now this is something that has been available for years but and I don't want to think about the cummulated hours I've waited for mp3 conversions.
With the advent of faster cpu's encoding jumped down to a few minutes for long files. But still I find myself waiting for mp3 encodes more than I want to.
Today i noticed that Logics' mp3 encoder only utilises 1 core in my cpu (i5), why?
Does anyone know a software package/codec that's available for pro tools and logic, that allows for multicore encoding on a mac?
Ps. Just to be clear. I'm not looking for a batch converter that utilises multiple cores, i want a codec that utilises them.
