Built in equalizer causes lag during silence on sample track

Having trouble with LMMS? Ask about it here.
This only started happening for me recently, but I've reset my computer a few times and the issue is persisting. The project will play normally until there's a silent portion of a given sample track, and then once it hits silence the CPU usage graph turns red and the playback starts to stutter. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I'm on the 1.3.0 alpha.

....Also sorry for posting twice in a row

why sorry?, you had 2 issues, so two post -np!

Let me see if i understand:
You have inserted a LMM-EQ on a sample -track? -And when the play-head gets outside where this sample plays, your CPU spikes out.
Right?
-Or is the sample a AFP?

It's a sample track, not AFP. Let me send a video I took (for some reason OBS didn't record audio because I fudged the settings but you can still see the usage spiking)

I didn't test to see if it happened the way you said before now....but apparently it does.

Noo -You are not outside the sample you are in a section of the sample that is muted. What i think happens is that LMMS tries to 'find' something audible, and that causes the high CPU-load.
What you should do, is to edit the silent part out in audacity, and use two samples -or more if you have more section with no audio.
You also pay a serious 'prize' in file-size for that not audible piece of sample. The filesize is practically the same, even if you record silence, so very expensive to have long silent part in a sample!

Like I said, it does still cause the CPU spike issue at the end of samples. I just hadn't checked on that particular run.

outside
and does that change if you disable the EQ?
I properly need the file to dissect this issue
