Yes, I have used it, and it's very nice. It feels *good*, you know, when
I'm listening and changing things a bit.

I guess my thought was that, assuming I understand the architecture of
the program, it's acting as a visual front end to the 32 channel EQ. If
there were simply fewer channels in the EQ then wouldn't thee be lower
CPU usage?
