hi karl,

is this what you mean? i recompiled the latest alsa driver 0.9.0beta4, do 
this on the commandline.

[alex at snd bin]$ ./pd -alsadev plug:0,0
Sample width set to 4
fragsize a 128
fragsize b 128
nfrags a 12
pd: pcm_params.c:331: snd_pcm_hw_param_set_last: Assertion `err >= 0' failed.
[alex at snd bin]$               

in oss emulation i get it to run, but i need the 8 output channels? any idea?

[alex at snd bin]$ ./pd -frags 8
OSS: Could not set fragment size
OSS: requested audio buffer size 8820 limited to 4096
error: failed to open MIDI ports; continuing without MIDI.      

thanks to all,
