Dear Max

Where do objects such as osc1~ live?
Any information would be greatfully received as would any re. Max and audio
and/or synthesis in general?

Also - has anyone any experience of using MAXGen - I downloaded a copy but
it just crashes the machine as soon as you look at it.

The Rowe book : I got a copy by ordering it from my local bookshop (in
London).The CD ROM came from MIT via a slip included in the book - well
worth getting hold of.

In your estimation, do you think the program will run better or worse on
my Quadra 650 (40 megs)?

Has anyone out there written an external that would read video tracks off of
a CD-ROM?  I know about the video disc player object but I am told that
discs players are on the way out, besides the fact that it's hard to find
that has serial cable input.  Also, I'm hoping it is easier to record video
files to CD-ROM.  If MAX can read audio tracks off a CD-ROM with the CD
object then why not video?
