    Just wanted to let you know, that Zsa.descriptors 1.0 is out! It works in 32 and 64 bits with the latest Max version and it's compatible with the package format so it's easy to install.
    Have fun.

      Hi there. First of all, thanks for all your work creating the ZSA descriptors package. I use it endlessly. My question is specifically in regards to the bark~ object. I was curious what underlying language it is written in and how your methods of FFT analysis might stack up against others, speed wise, particularly against a dedicated implementation in JUCE. I'm using several [zsa.easy_bark~]s in my patch and experiencing some choppiness in the readings and interference. Is there anything less efficient about the descriptors implementation because of it being brought into Max? If I need several audio streams analyzed simultaneously do you think it would be advantageous to conduct them all in one dedicated Max external (or a purely JUCE project for that matter), rather than using multiple copies of the descriptors object? Could they maybe all be multi-processed or something along those lines by JUCE when all executed together? Any advice on a strategy you might have here would be exceptionally appreciated! Thanks, Ryan

      MuBu and PiPo analysis can do this kind of job.
      MuBu is available as a package.

      Oh really? I thought that was just machine learning. Thanks for the tip
