MIDI out - Automation - CPU overload

Hi all,

There seems to be a bug with automating the "MIDI out" plugin. It causes the CPU to overload if you use multiple automations at the same time.

I have tried 2 different ways to automate a knob ( using the Automation Clip, and recording the events to a pattern ), but both cause the same problem. The "Automation Clip" causes a more significant CPU overload than recording the events to a pattern.

Sending MIDI messages to an external device shouldn't be this CPU intensive. I have tested with 3 different MIDI interface devices and they all have the same result. Also, I am running FLStudio on a Core 2 Quad 3Ghz /w 8Gbs of RAM machine, so it is not a hardware problem.

I have attached a couple of pictures so you can see the CPU overload in a very simple setup. One shows the "Automation Clip" and the other one shows the events recorded to a pattern.

Thanks in advance for looking into this, and I look forward to having this bug fixed soon!
