Hi. Let me warn you up-front: chuck is a very expensive language. I was 
forced to come up with another way of generating sound, but I should 
mention that my setup was quite elaborate.

I seem to remember Ge saying something like "first we make it work, 
*then* we make it fast", however development of chuck stopped before the 
last part was started :-(

I did some non-scientific profiling on various chuck ugens, which could 
give you an idea about which ugens are the most expensive:


Don't get me wrong, I love chuck for what it is!
