    Why is Audio Suite so slow compared to Audio Track Effect Tool ?

    Why is the Audio Suite Tool so slow compared to the Audio Track Effect Tool ? 

    When I'm using the same filter or plugin with Audio Track Effect Tool, I can quickly hear different presets, change parameters and hear the effect instantly, bypass etc.

    But with the Audio Suite Tool, when I'm running the Preview mode, I have to wait around 6 seconds to hear any change or if I want to Bybass etc. 

    It's the same AAX filter - just a different tool inside MediaComposer. What's wrong with Audio Suite Tool?

    I'm using MC 8.9.3 right now but it was also slow in older versions.

    I don't know , but I suspect that audio suite is old code, maybe 32 bit and one day it will be abandoned. Like you I find it easier to use a realtime effect, sometimes I take a screen shot and copy the parameters over to the audio suite version.

    Yes, but if I'm running the Preview inside the Audio Suite Tool, it's in realtime but even enabling the Bypass to hear the sound without any effect takes about 6 seconds.
