this may be really dumb answer, but are you using the SOUND ctl panel, as
opposed to MONITORS & SOUND,  this lets you choose between the analog or
digital inputs on an AMIII, so I guess it would work with AMII..

I've had some fun with Nobuyasu Sakodna's granular patch, using a powerbook
2400/180
works fine.. uses about 50-60% cpu I think..

Subject: OS 8.5 and Max

Is there any advantage in using Speed Doubler with Max under OS 8.5, now
that QuickDraw (which was previously a bottleneck) has been changed to
native code?

Should virtual memory be kept off with Max under OS 8.5, as before?

Are there fat versions of Steve Ellison's itoa and atoi objects?

Also, for Thierry, you might want to check out Matt Wright's
OpenTransportUDP object and CNMAT's OSC protocol:

If you have an AMII, you should also have Sound Designer - If you switch to
digital input there (and quit, so msp can find the card) the card will stay
in digital mode.
