[PD] Fwd: finding the cause of clicks when using sssad WAS: saving state of a patch

I hope im not misunderstanding, but doesn't the s-abstraction way of  
using 'datastore' to change presets eliminate dropouts - Why is there  
a need for a ram disk? I mean is there a lag between hitting the giant  
message box and updating all the abstractions?

I was inspired the other day by a Max discussion on the pattr object,  
which is used for state saving. This in turn can be used from  
arranging pieces to to creating very nice random instruments that  
flick between presets very quickly...

Is this a problem for sssad at the moment?
