    Hi everyone.Lately i have been getting more into producing dnb...Im using FL studio but my cpu usage is going like 80-95 the whole time while playing in song mode...I have 4GB of ram, intel core quad 2.33GHz processor and a crappy soundcard.Im also using some cpu hungy VST's like massive and some others.Is it the processor or the soundcard i need to replace or something totally different o.o?

    Erm. You seem to have identified the problems yourself.
    Try bouncing out the Massive and whatever to audio as this reduces CPU usage, as will better audio drivers.
