i am currently building a patch on a windows computer, and from times to times when i am not home, i continue no my macbook. When the patch runs on Windows the dsp monitor inside max shows about 10-12 %, and the task manager, show a CPU load of around 12-14%.
For the same patch, on my macbook pro, the max dsp monitor shows about the same, 11-14%... but activity monitor, shows max using 90-140%.
Windows equipment: Windows 7 32bit, i5 3,1 GHz, 4giga ram 1333mhz
Macbook equipment: Mac IS X Mountain Lion, Intel core 2 duo 2,66 GHz, 4giga ram 1066mhz.
I know there should be a small difference in the CPU load between the two machines.. but that much?
Does anyone has a problem like this? Any suggestions where the source of the problem might be?
I am using enough UI objects like [meter~] and [pictctrl] for custom knobs and buttons. Could this be the problem??
Also, i did the OS X upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion recently, so the patch worked under both operating systems, and i think that i did not have that problem with Snow Leopard.
Any help would be much appreciated!
