One of my patches is registering 20-30% cpu in MaxMSP when it's fully up and running (.....desparately needs some optimizing), but Activity Monitor is telling me that MaxMSP is using 60-70% of my cpu.
That's with no apps other than Max5 running, and only that one patch open. With audio off, Activity Monitor is still showing that Max is using 25% cpu. Bearing in mind that this patch is about 95% MSP, with a very minimal interface (and all buffers empty), that seems very strange to me.
I'm using 10 instances of elasticindex~ (autosmooth setting IS off, but they still account for a lot of the processing), but it appears that Max is using what seems to be a massive percentage of my cpu. Even with audio off and no patches open, it is still showing 20% in Activity Monitor.
Does this seem strange to anyone else?
