absolutely, thought, i would give a short response to your proposition...

>first step is to try: pd -nomidi -noadc  and see if that helps. 
>there's no midi working in pd/osx yet and there is a problem with 
>the portaudio acquiring the proper audio/out in on the quicksilver 
>boxes. this will narrow down the problem.
