Cairo spectrum plugin high CPU usage
During playback, Audacious' CPU usage is around 8% on my machine and X11's is around 10%. When enabling the cairo spectrum plugin, they go up to 9% and 45%, respectively.
In version 3.3.1, the CPU usage was normal with the spectrum analyzer enabled.

On my system:
Audacious X Without Cairo spectrum: 7.6% 4.9% With Cairo spectrum: 8.3% 5.0%
Also, there were no changes made to the Cairo spectrum plugin between 3.3.1 and 3.3.2.
I suggest you look elsewhere for the cause of the high CPU usage. If you are using a compositing window manager, disabling that would be a good place to start.
