Isn't that a rather sexist remark? What makes you so sure =cw4t7abs is not

Maybe this question is better phrased "Is anyone NOT using MSP the new
extensions to MAX??" !!!

I do, I supose most or a large number of poeple on this list do.
It works well and is a marvelous tool most of the times. The problems
rather comes from Macintosh!!!

I still have troubles that I seem the only one to have :
for example :

I can't use the input on one of the machines I use :
7600/120 + Pro Tools Project (OS 7.5 3) with or without Digidesign Sound
Drivers 141 oir 142
Even the sound manager does'nt seem to work normaly, maybe the system is
off. But installing System 8 is such a mess. Not only that the both systems
(OS 7 & 8) with Max&MSP do not work without bombing every hour, but Opcode
obliges you to burn your authorizations when upgrading system.

Quite often, I have had a problem using the pan2~ object :  the output
crackles and when I open the buffer, it takes only the 1st half of the pan
wavetable even if the file pan.aiff stays complete. I have finally found
the reason why it did this. It was because I was working in 22Kz. So only a
part of the sample was in the buffer.

Polyphony is quite difficult to organise. It often drives non specialists
to silence or crashes.
