By default, ChucK talks to CoreAudio at 32-bit floating point.

Currently, there is no way to specify this. It would be worth
adding! It's strange that it's getting set to 16-bit. Are you using
the universal binary downloaded from site?
Also, run --probe, which may tell you more about the available devices:

There is a bug in the intel version of the miniAudicle that causes
real-time audio to crash. I believe Spencer has fixed this issue and
will release a new version today.

Can anyone else address this? I think this would be helpful for many
OS X MIDI users.
