Hi all,
i did some experiments with version 0.36 and i'm a bit disappointed that the
audio (asio) part hasn't improved yet.
I don't know if it's a PortAudio issue but i find it quite lame that under
Windows (with a RME HDSP Multiface, digital loopback) i can't get stable
audio with effective latencies under 30 ms. That may be ok for just playing
sounds but it's not for live processing of instruments (for example
percussion). The other thing is that using 18 in/18 out channels without any
dsp load costs 16-20% of cpu (PIII 800) - that's just for audio IO!
Has anyone had more success? How can the situation by improved?

It would also be less confusing if the devices listed with the -listdev flag
(now one-based) would exactly correspond with those specified by
the -audiodev flag (zero-based)

best greetings,
