I downloaded the demo of JBridge and converted Gold 64 bit to a Jbridge plugin. With the same test in Cubase, I had higher CPU (near 100) and had to change my buffer to 2048 on my Apollo (audio wouldn't start to sound at 1024), BUT, I was then able to get 54 Golds w audio running! I'm just investigating what exactly JBridge is doing, but it seems that taking Processes out of Cubase's main processing thread wins more power. Have to do further testing with large sessions and a mix of acustica/non-acustica plugins.
I have my Acquas/Nebula all set to 2048 buffer size. Not sure how much that affects things.
Jbridge in Reaper 5.40 didn't go as well as Cubase 9. I start getting consistent stuttering (and huge CPU spikes) at 41 Golds which gets worse and worse as I add more The program finally slows to a crawl at 50. Buffer is at 2048 or else I don't get as many.
In other Cubase sessions that I had 5 or 6 Golds in, I was getting "This plugin needs to be authorized" errors when I was trying to add more Acquas. By just running Gold in Jbridge, those errors went away, the projects are running smoothly, and I was able to add a bunch more Golds before things start freezing up CPU-wise.
