Een eertlek, mert a sz=FC=FCleim magyarok. De nem vagyok bisztos hogy
irtame eszt a sz=F6vegek, mert soha se tanultam irni es olvasni magyarul.
Mindenkeepen, az Antiorpnak a nyelve nem es iilyen (ijen?) komplikalt.
Peeldaul '=3D' "is" jelent angolul.

Something else: I've tried to record a large sound file from my DAT to my
hard disk today, using the Korg 1212 card (S/PDIF input on channels 3 and
4) and a simple MSP patch on a PowerMac 4400. I consistently ended up with
clicks and error messages like"sectors skipped." The recorded sound file
also contained a fair amount of distortion, which seems to have been caused
by something else than a feedback loop in SoundManager. When using another
method such as recording with SoundHack, the recorded sound file was fine;
no skips, no distortion. What could have been the reason for this problem?
Am I supposed to increase the buffer size (it was set to the default)?
Shouldn't 16kb be large enough, in theory?

My worry is that if I want to use sfrecord~ in a real-time situation I
might end up with poor quality sound files, which whould be a disaster in a
concert. I'd like to suggest that sfrecord~ sends out a bang or an error
message thru one its outlets, so one could start a new recording right away.

Subject: Pict Problems

I have been trying to work with animating pict files in the graphics
window by having a smaller pict "float" over a background pict.  The only
problem is that the smaller pict is accompanied by a 2 pixel white border
on the bottom and right edges.  Is this a bug in pict or am I missing some
params?  Any and all suggestions are appreciated!
