(this will be quicker if i just subscribe to the list...)

we opened up the utility "Console" the following message comes up:

Error number -9990 occured opening portaudio stream
Error message: Buffer too small

digidesign buffer is set to max (1024), different settings (down to 
256 for example) don't change anything.

we have also already changed the name of the HD to remove spaces in 
names, which apparently UNIX gets pissed at.

adding "-audiobuf 1024" to the startup flags doesn't change anything either.


we have another interface available (M-audio firewire 410, 2 in / 8 
out - we need 4 ins for the piece), had thought of using the 002 in 
and M-audio out, but the only setting in the audio settings that 
gives us sound is when both in and out are set to Mac built-in audio, 
so this doesn't seem like an option either.   what about sending into 
002 (4 mic inputs) then via optical from the 002 to the M-audio? 
don't know how to get this to work, but would it be an option?

in digidesign Coreaudio manager, when quitting and restarting we have 
discovered that the buffer settings we chose are not always still 
there!  they are usually a notch lower than we set them at.
