CPU load issues with Archetype Cory Wong, Plini, and Fortin Suite

I am new to Neural Dsp and have really been enjoying the free trails the last 10 days or so. All of a sudden all pluggins I’ve been trailing have had CPU issues in Fl studio. It happened overnight and it is only when Neural Dsp pluggins are being used. Files I have worked on with no issues are now crackling and popping from CPU overload when 3 gigs are still available in FL studio. Capture

Hi @sethhad. That’s probably caused by a recent change on your computer (background task, thermal throttling, etc). Go through the optimization guide, paying close attention to the analysis tools. Check if the CPU clock is suddenly below the base frequency or if there are processes running that could be utilizing too much CPU.

Hi Gonzalo,

Thank you for your reply, I have gone through the optimization guide, as reset FL to the default settings, then returned them to the optimized settings with no luck. When I open my largest file I have no issues when CPU, CPU only becomes an issue with the Neural DSP plugins. Could there be an issue with the plugins or would it be something on my computer?

Thanks for your help,

There’s no way for us to make changes remotely. If the plugins worked fine a few days ago, it means something must’ve changed in your system. If I had to guess, I’d say it could be caused by thermal throttling or something similar affecting the base clock of your CPU. Of course, the only way to know is by doing a stress test to check if the temperatures and base clock are ok.

Also, if you’re on a laptop, using it connected to the power outlet is a must.

same thing is happening to me, really regretting spending money on this plug-in. Despite the great tones.

Hi @mendle. I’m sorry to hear that. You should consider that most of these issues can be quite easy to fix once you identify the root of the problem.

One of my colleagues already replied to your email. Were you able to try some of the tips mentioned in that message?


I’m having a similar issue with Fortin Cali… Just trying out demos at the moment, at this point I’ve sampled just about every plug you offer and for whatever reason Fortin Cali pulls 2-3x more cpu in practice than any of the others - including plini. Working on a windows 10 machine with decent to great specs:

Ryzen 3950x, 64gigs of fast ram, running off of gen 4 NVMe drives, and my DAW is Nuendo 10.

I’ll definitly be picking up Nolly and I’m looking at either the NTS or Cali as well, but the Cali is just running hot for some reason, glitch or is this normal?
