I noticed the following.
When running spat5.spat~ inside maxMSP. The cpu is around 30% on my MacBook pro (Windows Bootcamp)
However, When I try to load the Spat5.spat~ object inside a m4l device, my Ableton CPU meter skyrockets to 200+. Audio cracles, or a complete stop of audio happens after.
What causes the massive difference in performance between Max, and Max for Live?
My Ableton set is completely empty
