yes, thanx! someone said they're using a p-200 and it works fine; so far
i've tried it on an Indy and a p-100 with 24M RAM. The p-100 is pretty
sluggish (window draws and cursor movements were really slow when i had 2
patches open at once, cos.pd and fm.pd, i think).  However, it actually
never crashed whereas the Indy dumped core a few times...

btw, roughly how many pd users are there?  does anyone have an idea?

thanx again,
