Software Delay

Hello All,

I’m trying to find out what delay occurs when sending a message through objects in Max. (For example, if I send a message into the input of a bang, what is the delay in sending an output?)

There must be some sort of delay which is affected by your processor speed but is there any documentation to specify what this is for specific objects?

Hope that’s clear, thanks for any help.

it is a bit strange at first how to use it but it does the trick.

I thought about that and tested it using a bang. However it doesn’t show any time delay. It might be too quick to register anything.

No problem, I’ll continue searching!

I’ve been using this basic cpuclock-based methodology to test efficiency.
