Send + receive vs IO boxes

I have a patch enclosed in another patch (witch is enclosed in another patch) and i want to send to my “_root” patch a big amount of data from the inner (level 2) patch.

schema : ((patch_2) > patch _1) > _root

  • from patch_2 directly to root

Is it better - faster (according to the CPU performance) to use send+receive nodes or pass them thru IO boxes(it’s about some thousands of values ~ aprox. 3000 - 4000).


S/R nodes just make hidden connections (potentially across patch borders). so while you cannot generally say that they are “faster” in your case you may gain something from them as otherwise you’d probably have to do more connections.

Thank you joreg for your quick response.
