Thanks Michael.

I tested this yesterday.  You just have to chain the two messages:  =

I'm running into another problem with the reverbs - the M2000 doesn't =

expert mode.  The other main problem I'm facing at the moment is that =

Sorry to hear that.  I just asked them for one; hope I can make =

something out of it.

Right.  Everything is automatically scaled.

Here's an idea which I haven't tried out yet myself. How about putting the
midi file into a QT movie and then navigating around by means of the QT
timecode??? Tell me if this works.

BTW, just got a G3 and find the keyboard to be terribly noisy (a real
pianist's complaint). My old Apple Extended II keyboard was much more
pleasant to type on. Otherwise the computer is great - but this cheap
keyboard pisses me off.

Has anybody tested other G3 hardware in comparison to previous PowerMacs,
for example, the audio quality of the CD-ROM drive, the D/A and A/D
convertors and the rest of the sound system??

This is well and fine but what about the rest of us?

Subject: MSP buffer~ and capture~

When you're doing analyzation of the signal which is 512 samples long it
can very confusing to turn that into milliseconds.  It would be great if
you could specify the length of buffers in samples instead?

And is the millisecond agrument for buffer~ a float or an int?

Assuming sample rate of 44.1k

(1000/44100) * 512 =3D 11.609958 ms
