@wwmm It just consume 20-25%. No matter if its on the top, showing the visualizer or not. For first minutes it's okay. Looks like something loops. It does this also, when starts with desktop as "background processing mode". For the first minutes it just consume 2-5% minimized as it should be. But if I leave it running for a while, it just goes up. Even if nothing plays a sound. Sadly I don't know what causing it, maybe I will try to start it from a console and see debug messages.

@mthqwork does this happen even when there is no audio app shown in PulseEffects window? When there is no app shown the gstreamer pipeline should enter the paused state. In this case the should be no cpu usage

If it is only when an audio app is shown it may be normal or not. Right now the cpu usage varies a lot among processors. In my ryzen 1700 the usage stays around 1% (as measured by gnome-system-monitor) even with all plugins enabled and the window opened. But in the i7-7500 of my laptop I can get more than 15% easily with just a few plugins.

In any case please open an issue in PE page in github so we can investigate this.

@10479 I have the same issue. Not just for the background process. Consuming constantly 25% cpu (or one core, I have 2/4 i5). With zen kernel. Anyway great program, very useful, love it.

This is the best application ever! Thank you so much for this project - it's working like a charm and helped me improving my X-fi bass experience a lot!

@archtefo - Awesome. Thanks for the info.

Has anyone else noticed higher CPU usage after being left on for a few days? My desktop will usually be in an on or suspended state for the better part of a week or so between updates. Near the end of the week's time, I'll notice python3 using about 10x the CPU power. Restarting this app will reduce it down to 1x.
