I started Max6 (6.1.7) last night and noted it was using significant CPU cycles, figured it was rebuilding its database or something.
This morning, it is still at 8% + another 5% for coreaudiod even though no patchers are loaded and Audio is turned off (see attachment).
What's it doing?
I note that if I restart and Audio is disabled, coreaudiod is 0. Turning on Audio causes coreaudiod to go up to about 5% and it then stays there, even if I turn off Audio again.
