On our pd-0.24 NT the lib is named pd.dll. and as a really visually
Visual-C++ must-Newcomer couldnt compile a external on it...

maybe so should we rename the pd.dll to pdlib.dll ?

Besides is there an up or downsampling object, I couldnt find up~ and

PS.: I have hacked pd on NT to do multichannel on synched in and outs, 
adding two commandline options -audioins <n>, -audioouts <n>
(working on a PII, with RME-Card (ADAT-I/O)) which works.
(see )
	in fact only in src:
     - s_nt.c, -> see wini-comments
	  - s_main.c -> for options -audioouts <n>, -audioins <n> 
     - m_imp.h -> max channels to 8
   are modified
