Though I'm a Max user for a whole decade this is my first post, so I'd like to say hi, and it's a privilege to be part of the community.
I was wondering if there is any obvious way to do some math on a whole buffer of arbitrary size. As a very simple example, finding out the maximum of a buffer in one pass... I know it can be done in realtime but I'm interested in faster than realtime. I can think up a couple of ways to do this, but they are so convoluted that I believe there must be some simple approach.
