Can I influence or optimize the usage of dsp?

you can optimize with the XITE.

with the sync numbers, you can see the load on each dsp. the async numbers tell you what processes are speaking to the cpu.

by observing the pattern that things get loaded onto dsps, you can optimize your behavior...maybe...

Does this mean a reverb needs a lot of async?
And the more async you have, the more danger of pci overflow errors?
What is the max. Number for the load of one dsp? 1067?

yes, reverb uses a lot of async. reverb is 1000s and 1000s of delay lines, which uses ram.
yes, a lot of async can lead to overflow.
ASIO uses async.

i'm not sure what the maximum sync is. it's over 1067, you have a dsp using 1135...

I am often terrorised by pci overflow errors. What can I do to make it better? PC Settings? My own behavior?

1. Clean the contacts
2. Use Native reverb
3. Revise the cooling scheme
