This group has already addressed the problem of increasing the speed of MIT's CSOUND direct synthesis program by parallel execution after suitable pre-processing of the score file. This paper describes the impact of an advanced parallel architecture and presents some benchmark results indicating the speed increases achieved with real examples. A live demonstration of the system illustrates the order of speed increase which is achieved.
