coll loading time (just me?)

Coll is taking years to instantiate and pins my cpu. gives me the
evil spinny rainbow button. I guess I just never noticed before.

anyone else? any ideas?

instantiating 20 colls= approx 2.9 seconds pbG4

I was hoping to do this with each new “track” in my program. but 10
seconds for creating 3 tracks is unacceptable.

On a 1.5 GHz PB, running OSX.4.8, and MaxMSP 4.5.7, I get the same
behavior, but under 4.6.2 things are fine.

do you load the files referenced by the coll-names at startup? if
not, use a second non-zero argument to prevent coll to go looking for
the file, thus spending a _loooong_ time stepping through your search-
path for *each* instance of coll.

does this patch still take that long to load?

YEAH! somehow I was stuck on the idea that it was allocating
memory. this makes SO MUCH MORE SENSE!!!!!!!

jasch, as if you objects weren’t help enough, you’re service is
greatly appreciated.
