Subject: trying to download X<>POSE

apologies if this is a duplicate.

I've been trying to download the X<>POSE demo and am getting access denied
using the address:

Anybody know one that works?

You're not missing anything. It's a bug, and I'll fix it. Note that
this bug has only been in the program for seven years until you
found it. Congratulations!

In anyones' opinion, what is the best route to building a real-time
sampler using Quicktime on a Mac? I don't have a PC or Orpheus, but would
do exactly what it does. Is there any certain video card which can be
by anyone?  Video vision, M100?

Subject: Output QT to NTSC Question


I Have a patch finished that allows me to sequence QT movies with Vision
to lock up to a live show.  My question is what hardware could I get
that would output the movie window to composite video? Also, would it
help take the 'load' off the CPU?  And it needs to support 30 fps 640 x
480. (PCI or NuBus, have both)

Thanks in advance,

Subject: Globals in externals

Hello everybody,

I don't understand clearly why I can't have access to global variables
like "qd.screenBits.bounds" in externals. Does someone can explain me?

Thank you.

I am looking for an audio multiple voices player and random access in a
bank of sounds (indexed).
Apparently none of the max objects allows these features.
Either it is monophonic or requires the name of the file.

Je recherche un moyen de faire jouer sur plusieurs voix des fichiers audi=
