MSP performance in Max 6

    Oct 24 2011 | 1:11 pm
    I love the features of max 6 but after a brief look at it I am very concerned about audio performance in Max 6. I suppose that the switch to 64-bit audio processing is the reason for this hit in performance.
    Of course I can see the advantages and of course I like the improvements in sound quality. Still I am having problems to understand the point of releasing a new version of Max which out of the box nearly doubles the processor load of existing patches...
    I would at least like to have a choice weather I want to use 64-bit high quality processing or weather I go with lower quality and better performance (while still having the benefits of the great other improvements in max 6).
    What about an option to turn 64-bit processing on and off?
    cheers B.
