There is simply no way Props can automate potentially hundreds of third-party sound driver processes!
Perhaps, then, such a feature would be better implemented in the driver rather than the DAW itself, while Reason would merely provide the option to make use of the feature when it is detected as being available.
Also, waiting for the processor to max out before attempting to lighten its load is clearly not a good idea, so a threshold would have to be employed instead, I think.
Anyway, I am simply brainstorming here. I am not yet convinced of the suggestion's supposedly fatal shortcomings.
