Two quick questions

What’s the best way to check if DSP is active? For instance, I want a metro that only runs while DSP is on.

Also, is there any way to find out how many cores/processor a computer has? I’m building this on an 8-core mac, it should run on a 4-core, but I’d like to be able to only allow half of my poly instances to be available when there are fewer than 4 cores.

maybe something like this for your metro??

Seeing as you’re on a mac you can use the [shell] or [] external to ask for information from the system profiler.

2nd question – in the OS add the processor status to navigation bar and choose the option show processor palete.. this way, you should get something like this
