Hi Kassen and all,

A more general question: Who has gotten multi-channel in ChucK working 
under windows XP?  What brands/models of soundcards?  Multi-channel ChucK 
works fine for us under OS X (Edirol interface), but we have not been able 
to test it much on XP or Linux.  Perhaps knowing what else works (or not) 
will help us learn more about the EMU, Patchmix situation under XP.

Does winamp have the option of using DirectSound as the output (the 
primary sound driver belongs to winmm, I think)?
