[linux-audio-user] Ardour CPU Hogups

I am using Ardour as my main production tool. Quite a lot is at stake, 
since I intend to be earning 20'000 to 30'000 dollars per month in the 
business my production work is part of, and funnel quite a lot of that 
into all those wonderful open source projects I'm using right now.

The problem is, as far as I can track it down, that CPU usage goes over 
the roof as soon as the stop button is pressed in ardour after loading a 
specific number of LADSPA plugins (though it doesn't appear to matter 
which ones). It's not just a few dropouts either; either there are no 
XRUNS, or you can't even move the mouse.

Sorry I can't be more specific, I'm puzzled myself. Maybe this can be 
worked out right here.

I use Xubuntu Dapper, out of the box.
