error (ie - waveOutOpen: MMSYSTEM004 The specified device is already in
use. Wait until it is free, and then try again.), which means pd itself is
probably choosing a port I can't really use feasibly when I load it without
the command line settings (I have a virtual audio device loopback installed
that to pd probably appears to be an open port).

I believe in Pd-0.24 the port numbers for audio devices were off
by one; i.e. to get "audio output device 2" you have to specify
-soundoutdev 1.  Perhaps this is part of the problem...
