Actually my top level abstraction is a layer of a synthesizer I am working
on. The user can select one of 5 synthesis engines, each of them exists in 8,4
or 2 voices (selectable by switch~). And there are several filters too on the
same principle.

That makes a lot of non-signal objects (although there are no
intensive math calculations).

I didn't take them in account, that explains the cpu usage.
