aha, that's the trick. Thanks a lot! This means Bidule is now  
blinking all green for me. Feels good to know that you're not wasting  
time when beginning to learn a new application. I can now feel  
comfortable with the decision to keep MAX/Msp as my "audio plug-in  
manufactory" until my available computing power makes it possible to  
replace my pre-loop hardware with all laptop processing.

Nice! I too discovered the pc filter bidule yesterday late night when  
reading the manual in bed on a laptop. This is great news to med  
because it means I can keep my FCB1010 pedal with the same MIDI PC  
bindings as I use with the hardware set-up (tc fireworX). And I can  
take my time to replace the twenty fireworX sound patches with  
software multi plug-in setups (eventually also new MAX patches)

I also put chains of effect plug-ins first then through Mobius and  
then the Mobius master through a freeverb. I would like to wrap it up  
with a stereo compressor (Sonalkis, for a more musical mix and to be  
able balance the mix dynamically from the level of my live input in  
relation to the Mobius stuff)) but I had to sacrifice that to save up  
CPU cycles. Instead I still use my external hardware RNC (REally Nice  
Comporessor) as the last unit before the PA.

I'm also having great fun with the SiR convolusion reverb VST plug- 
in! (tip for you that don't know about SiR). I like to keep it in the  
beginning, pre loop, and play though it as a performance effect. I  
have bought amazing convulotion impulses from http:// 
spiritcanyonaudio.com. That's a cheap way to find unusual effect  
sounds to play with.
