Thanks Mathieu, i figured with the mach-o error which i recall from SGI days as well that it had to do with the CPU
Has anyone compiled vbap for Intel?
I am currently using panN~ from xjimmies2 which does not seem to use define_loudspeakers, but i am curious to try it regardless

The .pd_darwin files must be compiled for the same CPU type as the
Pd-extended you use. For example, if you have an Intel CPU, then
Pd-extended for Intel is more efficient than Pd-extended for PPC, but the
former can only load .pd_darwin files made for Intel, and the latter can
only load .pd_darwin files made for PPC.

OSX's mach-o format has the particularity of allowing to merge support for
several CPUs in the same file, but not everybody uses that all of the
