Subject: 603 problems? not

I'm running a 100 mhz 6300 (603e) without any problems using MAX and
limited audio processing (2-4 tracks).  I do mainly MIDI so sound is not
that important but what I do works fine; firing snippets based on MIDI
events.

I do know you should have your sound files as nice continuous blocks of
data for best playing!  Even with a 604's wider data bus you'll still have
problems unless you have a large RAM.

Subject: MAX 3.5 crashes, seeking help.

Hi everyone, I've got a problem hopefully someone can help me with. I just
upgraded to Max 3.5, and it won't run.  As soon as I open up the program,
it crashes with a "unimplemented trap" error.
        I've tried reinstalling and running with extensions off.  It made
no difference.  My system in a Mac IIcx (68030) with an FPU, 8 megs RAM,
plenty of hard drive space, running system 7.5.5. Any help with this would
be appreciated.  Either reply to list or private email.  Thanks!

Alec

i just ordered a 7600 instead of the faster powercomputing model because
DigiDesign said they did not yet reccommend any of the powercomputing
machines except the more expensive Tower models
