My computer is a Dell Precision 3431 with Windows 10 Pro, i9-9900 8 core 16 threads 3.1 GHz base speed, 64 GB RAM.

*** THESE TESTS WERE INADVERTENTLY DONE WITH CPU LOCKED AT THE BASE SPEED OF 3.1 Ghz.

*** PLEASE SEE POSTS BELOW STARTING AT JAN 22, 2022 FOR TESTS WITH TurboBoost WORKING.

Its static polyphony is 10,000 voices at 48k sample rate, 1024 samples, higher definition pitch shifting on in HW 6. That's 20 notes held at 500 pipes per note on the 4+ GB polyphony test organ, hitting the top yellow bar on the CPU meter, just short of red. 7,500 voices (15 notes) stays in the green.

To test Nancy's polyphony demands, I used a 12" ruler covering 14 notes, some free fingers, and both feet to put as many long releases into play as possible using 18 note chords. This gave me about 50% more concurrent voices than I can do with both hands and feet but no ruler, so this is a bit of a stress test. Registration was all stops, all couplers. Amplifiers turned off! About 2 chords per second semi-legato to get long releases into play.

1. Nancy all 4 perspectives, all samples, no higher def pitch shifting, 48k sample rate, 16 bit samples to fit in 64 GB

Polyphony limit - polyphony meter bars - CPU meter bars (highest)

9000 - 2 yellow - 2 yellow

8000 - 2 yellow - 1 yellow

7000 - 2 yellow - in green

6000 - 2 yellow - in green

2. Nancy all 4 perspectives, all samples, with higher def pitch shifting, 48k sample rate, 16 bit samples to fit in 64 GB

Polyphony limit - polyphony meter bars - CPU meter bars (highest)

8000 - 1 yellow - 2 red

7000 - 2 yellow - 3 red

6000 - 2 yellow - 1 red

5000 - 3 yellow - 2 yellow

4000 - 3 yellow - in green

3. Nancy 2 perspectives (Front and Middle), all samples, with higher def pitch shifting, 48k sample rate, 24 bit samples

Polyphony limit - polyphony meter bars - CPU meter bars (highest)

8000 - 1 yellow - 1 red

7000 - 1 yellow - 3 yellow

6000 - 2 yellow - 2 yellow

Note: This is the configuration I play, with polyphony limit at 12512. Without the ruler abuse, the polyphony and CPU meters both stay in the green no matter how dense the music gets.
