Different wiring for different sexes does not in itself imply genetic predetermination but might as well be a consequence of differences in what challenges grown ups are likely to present to the child. ... Oh! I see Heidi Johansen-Berg says something to that effect as well in the last paragraph - good!

Fortunately, you are terrible wrong! :-) On the GPU you can trivially explore the parallelism of multiple identical channel strips or multiple, polyphonic synth voices. The code to do this can almost be copy/pasted from your favorite on-line DSP resource - the difference being that you'll get 32 of each (assuming the function call is warp aware) rather than one.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
