just did a test wav vs flac recording….reaper.

parameters for test.

1..sound device set to asio 4ms latency 256 samples. no glitches.
2..20 traks with fx playing back while recording 8 new traks 24 bit..flac test then wav test.
didnt see a big differnence tween flac vs wav cpu wise. up to 18 % max.

ive thrown loads of traks at this new pc with m2 and dont get it to 'puff out'. no matter trak count ymmv.
to be fair i only use low cpu useage plug ins.

maybe i'm missing something…but ive never had a prob with glitches here recording flac with loads of traks playing back even on an old machine. thats why i like works great for me. even on my old i5 refurb trying to make a glitch i never could make it glitch.
never even seen 30 % cpu useage.

i suggest people do their own wav vs flac tests as we all have different rig set ups. and what works for moi might
not for another user.

Yes, your new machine is a spanker and is probably more than up to the task.
Your test results are, well, vague but I believe you.
In the end you're adding an "on the fly" conversion process to an already hungry process.
The question would be, given the circumstances, WHY? - and the answer, beyond "...because I always have..." would need to be a a good one for anyone else to adopt this as a useful "tip or trick".
