I am also using audio from the internal cd player as well as from the
outside audio port (or how do you call it ?), and have the same question
about "playthrough". I noticed that playthrough was off when I loaded
a msp patch after I launched the cdplayer, but it would turn on when I
would touch the play button or any other button of the apple cd player.
You're writing about 8.5, I am using J1-8.0.1 and J1-8.1, but I didn't find
any option about turning "playthrough" on or off.

---- other concern :

I have been using Mr. Gary Lee Nelson "RandIJ" objects in many patches, but
they don't seem to work on PPC. Are there new versions of these objects ?
NB : in the "random" object's helpfile there is a suggestion for a "set
number generator seed" message, but I don't see its effect.

----other concern :

is VNS downloadable and usable with max ?

----other concern :

Is there a hope to have color available on all objects
and cords (not only on sliders and bang objects) ?

(I have probably missed some of the communication recently,
if the above questions have already been answered, I would
be most grateful to have them forwarded)

I read about  this product in a magazine put out by Mix Magazine called
AudioMedia (April 1999/Issue 16).  I don't know much about it other than
it's a 16x16 digital matrix which can be remote controlled, but it
sounded like it may be of use in your matrix missions.  The down side is
it's price.

Company = DK-Audio
Product = CDR-1616
List Price=$6940.00

Happy Maxing

A hardware solution I now is the MIXTRAL. A powerful
and very versatile MIDI controlled 8x8 mixer with some
effects also. You can chain some of them. It has two
motorized faders also. It is very cheap and very compact.
It's creator is Giorgio Nottoli, great italian composer and
ingenier and a firm called Charlie Labs it's building it. We
made a special concert with it in Barcelona on Jan'98.
It is pretty cool and clever machine. I do not have any URL.
Search Charlie Labs.

I don;t knwo about the hardware, but some of the programming is done by the
venerable James McCartney, frequent denizen of this list and author of
pyrite for MAX.
