Eel/JSFX won't be as performant as sensibly written C++ code compiled with a modern optimizing compiler. The CPU performance can still be pretty decent.
This is exactly the kind of feedback I'm after. Thanks again.
Perhaps the JSFX route makes the most sense at this point given these will be bread and butter third order Ambisonic tools (EQ, compression etc) for use within REAPER.

How easy is it to incorporate a custom GUI using JSFX? The design isn't a problem for me.
