-how come? is the use of arrays in pd innately
problematic? i know that large arrays seem a little
cpu hungry (or at least they slow down the gui or
something) but for now all i want is a very quick way
to draw synth and filter envelopes, probably i will
use more purely data based envelope controls in the
future but there is something to be said for the
visual simplicity* that drawing can achieve...  

*in light of things simplicity probably isnt the right
choice of word..;-)
