thanks. but that didn't help.
hm. is it possible that pd-35/16 is somehow restricted to 8 channels
i/o? if so could someone compile a version for 16ch i/o?

i found out that i had to install cubase asio drivers of the motu828.
now pd finds an asio driver and runs, but only offers 2ch i/o. if i
specify to use more channels via -outchannels pd starts up and
immediately exits without any errors.

all this again happens on a w2k-pc.

is there anything i could try?

MK> audio output device :same thing

MK> so. . . just do that. you may lose 2 analog channels from what you already

MK> it may be possible to do some code tweaking and recompile using VC++ 6 but
MK> i'm not the one to know how to do that.
