Nice! So if you calculate the average of the buffer after "max from buffer" twice with half the window size, you should end up with a very smooth, accurate and cpu-efficient lookahead curve, as far as I'm concerned.

To change toe buffer-size you need to reset the stream (with clear-audio prim) which clears all the buffers and data is lost in the process. I can modify the algorithm to have adjustable buffer-size on the fly, but it will be slightly less efficient. Originally I thought this fixed-size would not be an issue.

Oh, I didn't realize this. So it's really not a bug then, my bad!

In some cases you might want to change the buffer size on the fly without the glitches you get from the clear audio prim (e.g. automation), but generally speaking this is just a cosmetic thing, so clear audio does the trick just fine. Thanks!
