  no, i think it's a firewire...
i remember using it once and there were some tweaking issues about it. i'm pretty sure i
finally made it, though.


are you sure that your audiocard latency settings are set to short latency ?
something like 128 samples ? you might need to use another program that can access the
buffer settings of your soundcard to do this. also you have to reset the soundcard after
that (power off / power on)

and i think you have to tell PD as well to set the latency down. best with a startup
script (but you can change this from the "Media/Audio Settings..." menu as well).

for ASIO stuff i use:

-asio -audiodev 1 -inchannels 2 -outchannels 4 -audiobuf 12

try to set -audiobuf as low as you can without stuttering audio.

good luck
