Trying to figure out why Pulse Audio cpu usage is high when MuseScore is open (even without any score open)
Notice I have no score open. Pulse Audio cpu usage would be under 0% without MuseScore open. But if I have MuseScore using PulseAudio as output, PulseAudio cpu usage jumps up to 25% of a core. And it is even higher up to %50 of a core if I select PortAudio and use PulseAudio as backend:
If I instead just use ALSA device directly instaed of PulseAudio, then there is no cpu hogging.
I don't know if this is something with my current arch linux system...I didn't notice it in past versions of MuseScore though, and I don't think I've really changed the audio setup on my labtop.
Not a major problem, but it does eat up my laptop battery and causes the fan to make noise, or I can just use alsa. But just wondering if people experience this or have any suggestions.
