Typically KBHit takes keyboard input from the "console" from which
chuck, Audicle, or miniAudicle was started. Since normally on OS X,
miniAudicle is not started from the Terminal but from clicking on it
in the Finder/etc., so there is no console, and thus no way for KBHit
to get input. Ideally, the console monitor in miniAudicle could send
keystrokes to KBHit, but this hasn't been implemented yet.
One alternative would be to the Hid API, which can recognize
keystrokes no matter where they are typed, and is more versatile in
general. If you wanted to stay with KBHit, you could start
miniAudicle from the command line and use the Terminal window to
enter keystrokes (to do this, open up Terminal.app and type /path/to/
miniAudicle.app/Contents/MacOS/miniAudicle, then hit enter (where "/
path/to" is typically "/Applications")). Or you could use regular
command line chuck.
