RE: looped jaw harp and kazoo?

    I really wouldn't recommend using Virtual PC for any audio applications... I use it at work for MS Office, but the general operation of VPC is incredibly slow.  I really doubt it could keep up with that kind of data stream.  I have switched to the mac version of Office just so i don't have to use VPC anymore.  And I have a new G4 tower, 384Mb RAM....

Well, you can buy Virtual PC 2.0, or higher, and run ACID on your Mac. I am not a MAC man, but I think Stienberg has some things that you can use. ReCyCle.
