thought i'd add some more to this:

there's a nice little command line utility called "process.exe" that allows you to set 
application priorities from the command line. so - no need to open the taskmanager and 
right-click something.

i used it several times with the "system" object from the motex library:


(for whatever reason, the DOS "start" command which is suppposed to be able to pass a 
priority flag to the started application didn't work with PD.)

good to hear that you guys had good experioences with asio4all and PD. i can remember that 
it had some stability issues with MAX/MSP when i tried it once.
