Subject: audiowerks driver bug/distortion after 3.5 hours

Hey Folks-

This is just alittle bit of follow up on my post yesterday. I've been
using a beta audiowerks driver, supplied by someone from this list, who had
been given it from David Z.
Emagic released a new audiowerks driver on October 13th, but it crashes
Max. (just like the previous release from Emagic). The driver from David Z.
works well, until 3.5 hours have passed and then the audio quickly distorts.

I was wondering if anyone could reccommend a fix for this situation.
Perhaps the board is being overheated by the continous flow of audio?
Emagic also released a new driver for Soundmanager. Is it possible to
output 8 channels throught the soundmanager (That is, without bypassing it
with an ASIO driver)?
Any advice anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

I've been using this card for about 4 months now and it hasn't given


me any problems. Latency is around 52ms, if I remember correctly.

Subject: More Opcode Rumors

This was posted to the opcode-users-list and I have to say that it at
least sounds very plausible.

I just hope that out of all of this mess something good happens with
Max. Even when Opcode was in good health they treated Max like a
demented cousin that you don't like to have with you in public.

hi Nick,

nobuyasu sakodna's rather superb granular patch will do this, among other
things. unfortunately, i've lost the url of his site - perhaps someone who has
it could post it here?

i have an Audiowerk8. i've only used it with the MSP demo patches as i
don't have the full software yet. i asked david z some time ago about using
this card with MSP and he said...
"The Audiowerk8 card does work with our latest ASIO driver and
the beta ASIO driver on the Emagic site. The latency is about 45ms,
not fantastic."

Thanks. I'll try morphine~ out on a fast G3. Never thought Max would be the
application to make me want speed, speed, speed--but I could easily become
an MSP junky. Maybe because it recalls the early Moogs 8-) with all those
signal patchcords.

How about running the code on a reguIar Unix box? I suspect your
specification of "Lintel" means that using the code on an SGI would require
reassigning drivers at the very least for realtime playback.

Subject: Control of wjmx50

Brian,

>Also, does anyone have a patch for the Panasonic WJMX-50

My patch for the WJMX-30 can probably be easily updated for the 50 by
changing the 'wjmx.codes' coll file (and some specific instances of WJMX-30
commands in the patch itself) if Panasonic used the same basic command
structure for the 30 & 50... If you don't already have the serial commands
for the wjmx50, Panasonic is very agreeable about sending documentation.

the wjmx-30 patch is at http://node.net/MAX/ftpfiles/downloads/patches/

Actually, they compiled successfully on an Intel-free linux box (LinuxPPC).
So I guess they should be fine in the OS X as well :)

Subject: Re: More Opcode Rumors

Maybe I should stop forwarding things from the opcode-users-list.
Soon after that rumor about some sort of Digidesign-Gibson-Opcode
debacle was posted other people that probably know much better than I
do pronounced it false.

I guess the moral of the story is that if you want to get hundreds of
whiny messages and rumors about what Gibson is doing to Opcode you
should subscribe to the list.

Here's the page for the list:
