Aligning Patch Cords causes poor performance

Apr 11 2010 | 2:01 am

I am wondering if anyone has run into this. I am working on a fairly large patch. Everything works fine, but after aligning the patch cords to clean it up it performs terribly. Every command takes about 30 seconds to a minute to execute and moving around the patch is almost impossible. If I hide the connections, performance returns to normal. Showing patch cords slows everything down again. Is their a way to un-align patch cords?

Thank you,

It worked. I don’t understand why aligning patch cords would kill performance, but as soon as they were two point cords the performance came back.

Do you have an example? I can imagine that it could slow down a bit because it makes the paths more complicated but that doesn’t seem enough to make it really slow.

i had this problem too. Try encapsulating (think this is the right term) parts of your program into smaller segments. This worked for me.
