Can Bitwig turn off a plugin device? Device enable button isn't off of plugin. It's bypass. I insert many plugin, so cpu will reach the limit immediately.

Ctrl+a to toggle between deactivate and activate. You can deactivate whole tracks. Right-click on the track, press bounce (not bounce on place), select pre-/post-fader depending on what you want. Then deactivate the whole tracks. You will notice a huge cpu save :)

Thank you for for telling me :) I could deactivate. But DSP meter of UAD-2 don't fell. If device was turned off in ableton live, DSP meter of UAD-2 fell. Why??

Maybe it is a handling issue how Bitwig handles the UAD Plugins. I have tested it on my DAW right now same behavior here. So I think that Bitwig is not handling a deactivation correct, or it is simply another background. Maybe writing the support. At least I will :D

I see. I will mail to Bitwig support. Thank you :)

I got a reply by the support. All plugins which are coded conform to the VST API should undload. Unfortunately, so the support, UAD Plugins are not coded properly. Bitwig is looking for a solution on that but they can't promise when a fix will be released.

There are known issues with UAD plugins and Autosuspend. You can turn of autosuspend of plugins by right clicking them.
