    I get more and more problems: Error messages in the Pd window, stuck GUI (audio running but with errors), Pd crashes, Pd crashes the computer.

    Now it is at a point where it is a real problem. At some stage I slow down working on a patch just because I fear it will break, and live of course it is a nightmare.

    My impression is that the gui freezing happens more frequently while using large patches with many graph on parent objects. The error messages always writes out when opening or closing a (sub) window.

    I try to stay vanilla but I have some external libraries loaded. I use the pduino lib with arduino unos connected over usb.

    My main computer is a MacBookPro early 2011/16 gig ram, hybrid SSD/optical drive, OSX 10.13.6 High Sierra.

    But the problems are similar on other macs I use: MacBookAir 2012 with Mojave and a MacBook 2009/8 gig, SSD, with High Sierra).

    So, how should I go about to report this bug? So I can help in the best way possible? Should I post the patches where the problems occur in?

    My problems seem to intensify when working with many graph-in-parent objects.

    Freeverb should be one of the cpu-cheaper reverbs.

    I can't reproduce any high CPU usage with it... < 1% here.

    What's your OS and hardware?

    I run a 2011 Mac Book Pro, hybrid hard drive, 16 gig ram. It is not in great condition, the fans runs often at max speed. I use OSX High Sierra.

    I get error messages, the graphical objects stop responding. Sometimes Pd crashes, sometimes the whole computer crashes, and often I have to force quit Pd. This has not to do with freeverb I think. But when I use freeverb the processor start working for sure.

    Anyway, I have 1 1/2 hour till I go onstage, and I just have t0 hope for the best. ;/ Maybe I will try to swap to [vFreeverb~]

    @ultraman I have similar problems, having to force quit. Also the whole computer crashes when using Pd. 2011 Mac Book Pro with OSX High Sierra.

    Hi,

    is there a reverb that is less cpu heavy than freeverb, with equal or better quality? Two-three freeverbs eats half or more of my cpu. :/

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    how can I modify this abstraction to allow multiple instances, by copy&paste?

    I need to use a variable in the table name somehow, I guess.

    Premiere of my sound work Ekerspel, an interactive sounding sculpture.

    FM synthesis, Arduino handling and some pattern detection is done in Pd.

    Hi,

    I have seen patches that have a lib folder with abstractions inside the patch folder. How do you make that work? So it stays portable, and the patches are not added to the system.

    Thanks!

    @oid Thanks, I will try it out in my next project!
