I’m working on a project integrating SC and Ableton (on OSX.12 ARM M1) connected via IAC (+ CV out to other outboard devices via CVTools). I’m experiencing intermittent yet very significant timing issues, especially when moving from one application to the next and where any network activity takes place. Though i’m baffled that a contemporary computing system still exhibits such issues (wasn’t this why we stuck with Atari?) it does seem that either the IAC bus or SC are low priority here.
Is there a means to force Supercollider to prioritize time-sensitive actions?
There is a known SC server priority issue with M1 processors due to the new MacOs QoS implementation. Waiting that this problem will be solved, you need to modify the source code of SC server and recompile SC by yourself. After that SC works like a charm on M1-M2
That’s it exactly…though I’m not quite clear what the fix involves.
Is it “simply” a case of removing (commenting out) the lines in question at 109-116? I’ve only used the SC download and not yet recompiled SC myself. Not sure I’m 100% comfortable doing this but the timing errors are going to cause issues in a performance i have in a few weeks if i can’t resolve this.
