aha, interesting... also, as you say, pretty high-end. thanks for the

note that their system does not run over 10Mbit Ethernet, which is what i
think powerbooks have?

in thinking about this, it seems like SCSI would be a much more practical
solution. why doesn't somebody make a single unit rack module that has a
SCSI connector (well, two) and perhaps 2 or 4 or 8 channels of audio i/o???

since hard-disk recording is already implemented in MSP, i suspect
supporting such a device would be pretty easy...

when the yogi gets sufficiently sensitive, he makes a humming sound, like a
bee, and in this vibration, hears the dissolution and creation of worlds.

Subject: Webcast

Part Two of the program with Hans Tutschku will be broadcast / webcast this
Saturday, June 13th.  For more information, please see:

The composer will be heard discussing his compositional methods and life
IRCAM (Paris). Four of his compositions will be heard --    two in
plus complete playbacks of ...errinerung... and Sieben Stufen.

I hope you were able to enjoy Part One last week. Please feel free to send
comments about this type of program.  I may have opportunities to produce
features of this kind, and I'd like to know if anything could be improved.

Subject: The shape of noise reduction past

I'm trying to find details of how to replicate the coding and decoding of
DBX type 1 noise reduction.  Does anyone here have this info, or know where
to get it?

with best wishes,
