Is a synth ever expected to accumulate?


#1

Topic title say it.

I am basically wondering if I can shave a few CPU cycles by skipping the if/else for accumulation in a synth.

I’ll take that as a no. :smiley:

You mean in the audio processing callback? No, a synth is no different to any other type of effect, and whether it accumulates depends on what the host is going to do with its output.

Oh, ok. Thanks.

It seems a strange thing to me though.
