Unfortunately this is not something I check.  Only by coincidence while
looking up something else while Mixbus was running did I notice this.

You wouldn't perhaps know about Bitwig structure, although for the sake
of understanding the principle behind this CPU usage, Bitwig takes
approx. 20% CPU while playing 'many' tracks.  By sketchy comparison, is
it possible to say that Ardour/Mixbus makes use of all available CPUs
while the way Bitwig is currently structured does not take these
resources ?

Or perhaps, is there a better way to measure true CPu usage for all
cores ?
