I am doing a dozen chain.pv_collect from a single chain. Obviously that peaks at the transform point (when we get new fft data) and in MaxMSP there is a neat mention where we can offset an fft process by blocks so we have a less peaky and more steady CPU load.
(sorry to defile sc with max code here, but check the start-offset argument here: pfft~ Reference - Max 8 Documentation)
I’ve tried to find a way in SC to do that, but the FFT doesn’t seem to allow that.
Is there any good practice around this type of load-management?
