I've been away from the Max world for a while, but started tinkering again today with my projects.
Lately I've started using Ableton Live for music, and noticed how CPU efficient it is at some tasks (notably drawing the spectrum display in the equaliser). I thought how nice it would be to have the same graphical quality and update rates in Max with the same efficiency.
Most of us know about Max's cranky objects(waveform~, meter~, etc), and then have to work around them. In the past I've done all sorts of peculiar workarounds to try and get the CPU down in my patches, but have started to wonder if it wouldn't be too much for C74 to make some of the core objects a bit more efficient?
Does anyone think this is this on the horizon, or are we stuck until Max... 10??
