Depending on the frequency range of your CPU, quality of your power supply and resolving capabilities of your entire system, you may benefit from changing the max CPU frequency that will be used for all your processing. By default, Euphony will run near max frequency all...

CPU isolation
Purpose CPU isolation (or CPU affinity) is a way to force the system scheduler to only use some of the logical CPU cores for a particular process (and all sub-processes it creates).
