Subject: Power Mac 8100w newer techs G3 upgrade card

Thanx to all who responded to my self quitting applocation problem.
Forgot all about that 3.5 addendum.  When I pulled it out there were
quite a few things I learrned (and relearned).

I am buying a power mac 8100/80.  I figure I can buy this computer which
still handles nubus cards (so I don't have to trash mine) and then
upgrade it to the 240mhZ G3 with the Newer Technologies card for the
8100.  Does anyone have any experiance running one of these machines
with or without the G3 cardwith the following:

ProTools 3.2 (68K) and a 442 system.  Unfortunatly ProTools 4.0 (native)
does not support the 442 system.

Sample Cell II

I'd like to know what kind of speed you get in the emulation mode and
the stability of running these nubus cards and on it.

Thanx

Sorry, I missed the cross dog and looper. If someone could pass them on
to me, I'd give 'em a run on my G3 (not a PB, but a desktop model). Might
make an interesting data point.

Cheers,

Peter

Apologies for going into AOL-mode, but yes, excellent documentation!

QKSend will be ready in a day or two (I just need to write the
documentation). You can have it choose Quit from the File menu.

Requires QuicKeys, however.

Cheers,

Peter

Actually, it can. The trick is, instead of sending the message 'foo' to a
message box, you send the message 'symbol foo'.

There is an example in one of the .help files (might even be for message
box).

Cheers,

From:    Matt Wright 
Subject: Announcing new Max UDP/OpenSoundControl objects

CNMAT has released new versions of our Max objects for UDP and for our
"OpenSound Control" protocol.  A key feature of this release is that these
objects can now receive UDP and OpenSoundControl data sent to Max as well as
sending UDP/OpenSoundControl from Max to somewhere else.

You can use the UDP object without the OpenSoundControl object to send data
over UDP in whatever format you like, but you have to write an external to
turn the data Max can generate into the actual bytes you want to send over
the
network.

You can learn more and download the objects from

  http://www.cnmat.berkeley.edu/OpenSoundControl/clients/max-objs.html
