abstraction vs plugin ?

March 31, 2008 | 12:45 pm

I’ve devised some audio fx abstractions, in msp, that I turned to vst plugins.

I now want to use those fx in other patches in max/MSP.
Then, what is the most efficient use in terms of cpu load: vst~ or abstraction.
Specially if there are numerous fxs.

Any info welcome.

i’m a bit interested to hear some responses to this.
my initial response would be that abstractions would run faster, given that a plugin must create a plugin wrapper, so an extra layer of software is added. but i have no idea if plugin’s can run in separate threads…

Is this also true for heavy fx like reverb, 12 voice gizmo~ or alike?
I would expect a constant overhead, not a proportional…
