I mailbombing is a good idea. I do think that people who released effects for mastering (bootsy, perhaps McBarGig) can make a case that bigger floats will make their effects sound more professional. That's how Ableton Live addressed the issues with Live5 sounding too "digital" for final mixdowns as a DAW; adding 64bit floats to effects. Also if someone needs supper fast FFT SSE3 is the way to go.aliasant wrote:lets mailbomb Malc to "convince" him of updating the ASM SSE part.
These are the instructions sets my new i7 has and I assume most other new CPUs has the same.
x86, x86-64, MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2
What of these do we have in SM? I guess: x86, SSE, SSE2 and only parts of it too or ?
Adding the opcodes in the ASM only? Three (3) hours.aliasant wrote:So what would it take for Malc to make this real ?

Thanks for the vote, but you are mistaken of what sse3 does.MegaHurtz wrote:sse3 does this "addps,xmm1,xmm2,xmm3;"
However, in a not too distant future, there will be a fused multiply add coming to your desktop CPU. So if in your example xmm1 = xmm2, then you will be correctMegaHurtz wrote:sse3 does this "addps,xmm1,xmm2,xmm3;"
I'm sure very very few will not have SSE3, since even netbooks have SSE3... unless you have a netbook with an ARM CPU . I personally don't care about that tiny % without SSE3, since I want to sell VSTs.TheAudiophileDutchman wrote:Full SSE2-support would at least also give SSE-integers and almost 100% compatibility with PC's of current users... andin case of full SSE3-support this may also be >90%...
Even the Atom chips used in Netbooks have SSE3.Jay wrote:with computers being dirt cheap nowadays, I truly do not know of anyone using a machine (for music creation) any less than dual core! If you don't have multicore and 64bit computing then time for a new PC
