[ardour-users] Ardour technical questions

I have read the requirements on the Ardour page with lot of care. I still have
some technical questions though.
I have noticed that the more tracks play/record at once the more
cpu usage you get.
With 16 tracks reading and 16 tracks writting my 2 giga hz AMD processor
reachs nearly 30% usage and with peaks to 40% (even 50% sometimes).
Is it a fatality ? I would like to know if it is possible to reduce this
amount by :
*installing more RAM (currently 512 but my swap is hardly used and have usally
some few megs of freeram, so i guess its ok ?)
*compilling with the new CPU optimisation flags (by how much will it
*using a blazingly fast RAID1 SCSI 10000 rpm system with a 64meg buffer ?
(only a IDE for now)
Any clue about this CPU usage will be greatly appreciated. :)
