atte@vestbjerg:~$ sudo hdparm -Tt /dev/sda
Timing cached reads: 1862 MB in 2.00 seconds = 931.56 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 142 MB in 3.00 seconds = 47.29 MB/sec

I experimented further, and it's not only the number of audio tracks

and fx bring the cup usage up. But I still feel that many audio tracks
take more cpu than they're supposed to.
