Some preliminary experiments on 4+ cpu core (or 2 or more dual core cpus)
machines suggest that even though apparently OSX does some load balancing,
Max/MSP/Jitter appears not to benefit from it much if at all. Namely, when
pushing 100+% cpu load (which is in effect 1/4th of the overall machine's
computational power) Max gets bogged down and behaves as if there is no more
computational power left even though most of its load is cpu-based (rather
Any thoughts/ideas on this one?
