Try using neither for a change: Build a test patch which drives your
song change with a [metro] and then see, at which metro rate the
dropouts start.

I think, it would be best if you would just post (part of) your patch.
We can guess a long time about what possibly might be wrong with Pd's
GUI and if Max would be better and what not, but we cannot change that
anyway. However if there just is a bug in your patch somewhere, such a
bug would be way easy to hunt down and fix.

And actually: I don't think, that displaying 8 lines out of a 128 line
textfile in a patch window is a task, that is too much for Pd's GUI.
This will definitely work if done right and will not give dropouts.
