I'm trying to save DSP on my computer and my current mix session has alot of tracks with automation. Is there any way to set the plugins through automation to suspend during playback on and off?
I think all ProTools plugins have a master bypass that you can automate to bypass the plugin. I don't know that it really saves power though. ProTools 11 has dynamic plugin allocation so the plugs that aren't processing aren't taking up power. Other options might be thinning the automation more or increasing your playback buffer size.
