Help! I'm trying to write externals with MPW MrC and am using the THINK/C
Symantec
example (#12 buddy) and ext_ .h's from that section.  The instuctions for
this area are
similar but different enough it seems to keep me from being successful.  I'm
trying to
do PPC only since I have none of the A4 includes, but I also cannot locate
the MAXPlayPC
C files.  I am using Max 3.5.8/9.  Can anyone offer me some suggestions?

Subject: Anyone here using a G3 Powerbook for Max-MSP /MIDI/Audio?

Hello:

I've been considering getting a new G3 Powerbook for both Max/MSP, MIDI and
audio work, and was wondering whether anyone here has had experience yet
with
this computer, especially with the new audio card coming out fot it... Since
(at least Apple) portables are always particular in their timing and serial
communications characteristics, I wonder whether I'd better stick with
porting
a desktop around...

Thanks for your help. You can respond to me personally if you wish.

ugh really stupid suggestion, but maybe mix as is, then slap some program
eq w/ lots o' lows across it. (that Waves Renaissance EQ sounds pretty
good.)
it could give you 'the big bottom' without changing the basic quality of
your tones.

(this sort of reminds me of a friend of mine who worked at a music store.
he was selling a PA system to a guy from Jamaica, and asked "well, what
are
you looking for in a PA?"  the response: "i want MAXIMUM BASS at

Yes, in 3.5 you can send Max the message directly, by putting the
following into message boxes connected to nothing, and clicking
them:

;max preempt 0   (overdrive off)
;max preempt 1   (overdrive on)
