CPU/Memory Javascript vs Max


    Mar 16 2013 | 1:46 pm
    Hi All,
    Is there any advantage gained in terms of CPU / memory by putting parts of a Max patch in to JS?
    I have a MIDI learn function which uses a lot of select objects. As the patch is really dense to begin with, would I save any space by putting this in to JS and using a load of if statements?

      Depends on a lot of factors - only way to determine is to test :/

      If you're overwhelmed with select objects, you might want to look at a structure using coll/forward:

      I would not use JS if accurate timing mattered.
