Hello Alex,

Yes the easiest way is to have two different instances of pd running and 
to communicate (some) data values using netsend / netreceive on localhost.
Depending of what you do (is there some Gem?), it is usually said it 
helps to have the audio process in one pd and the other only doing the 
computing and displaying in Gem.
Having two instances of pd is trivial under linux (just start another pd 
in the terminal), in osx i only know one way: you have to duplicate the 
whole Pd app and rename it, in windows i don't know.
good luck
