smart:eq+ is a great way to find automatic filter curves but it seems a bit heavy on asio/cpu in Cubase. In some cases, I have been copying the settings to a different eq with lighter cpu usage.

After it does it's automatic detection for the best filter slope, what is the best way/mode to set it to in order to reduce cpu usage?

Sorry for the late reply! :dog:

You could reduce CPU load by simply increasing the buffer size of Cubase. For example, if a buffer size of 512 samples causes high peak loads, try to increase the buffer to 1024 or 2018 samples.

Besides - you could give smart:EQ 2 a try( - it's the successor of smart:EQ+. And one of the benefits of smart:EQ 2 is a reduced CPU load. ;-)
