Re: [sc-dev] b_gen synchronous?



sounds like it might be worth having separate threads for CPU-intensive and i/o intensive async commands, you could even have a third one for other non-intensive commands with higher priority than the CPU-intensive thread.

Is there a reason why b_gen is synchronous? I'm making several buffers with large numbers of harmonics and while they're processing, no other commands can go through.


Then again, it might be like b_read which is supposed to be async but also blocks incoming messages until it's done.


It shouldn't be blocking other incoming messages. It may be holding up other async commands. All async messages and tasks are done on one thread.
