Dear Uncle '74,
I really appreciate the option of parallel audio processing which appeared in Max 6 because it allows one to better use his computer processing power, especially with current machines having now four cores or more.
However patchers must be completely independant to benefit from this option. One then has to open several windows to run his setup and each patch has to be saved separately. Moreover, there is a risk to remove an important window from memory rather than just close it as it would happen with a regular subpatcher. Also, when using independant patchers, one cannot organize them in tabs (another highly useful Max 6 feature).
So my request is: please allow regular subpatchers to be processed in parallel with the main patcher like independant patchers (even if this prevents audio inputs and outputs from the main patch). By the way, expanding parallel processing to non-audio patchers would be nice too.
Thank you for considering these requests.
