Hi all,

There's a Pd "portaudio" interface (in s_mac.c and s_portaudio.c), and
portaudio supports ASIO in "beta"... see

So in principle you can get Pd to talk to ASIO by just linking it all 
toghether.  I haven't tried this because I don't have any soundcards in my
Windows machine that support ASIO.

Come to think of it, what's the cheapest soundcard ASIO supports?
