M Stevens:

I have an ASIO driver for the AW8 card which I got from David Z. (a beta
version, I believe). Works great, and gives a vector size of 512. Email me
personally if you still need it.

my experience with setting the powerbook's sleep control panel to 'never' doesn't
really mean never... after around two hours, the computer does spin down the hard


drive (without sowing so in the control strip). I wanted to suggest that you
should have some sort of hard disk activity, but you mention that you had some
sfplay~ object... I don't think max timing's setups have anything to do with
your problem, but the fact that Ram 'leaks' is probably it.

if i recall correctly (i'm not *that* familiar with the 8500)
there should be a "reduce interlace flicker" switch in the monitors cdev

and, also in the monitors cdev, there should be a possibility
to select ntsc/pal overscan which will display the desktop in fullscreen

The information I've heard is that the more recent Mac startup sounds
were from a Korg Wavestation programmed by Jim Reekes, who until recently
did the Sound Manager programming at Apple.

I want to read a AIFF and record the information in coll. The
problem is when i cancel the process

i stop the process if i select
cancel?
Thanks in advance
