it was just a thought that csound might have been doing something
particularly power hungry.
i noticed that a lot of the audio it would make for me was a bit
choppy, like it was going through a lot to make that for me to listen to.
never heard the chop with chuck.
of course i have to run a speech synthesizer program, because without
that the computer becomes a very heavy paper weight, though that's
never slowed anything down for me.
and the speech itself never chops, or rarely, like say momentarily if
the computer is doing something that i would call nonblocking that it
devotes everything to, then and only then will the speech kind of chop
a bit, like when it is connecting to a host i want a webpage from,
when the page is up, the speech is smooth again. when it runs an email
check there's maybe a second of chop, then smoothness again.
replacing or turning off the speechware, not an option.
this particular one, free, and that's about the budget i have to work
