after a lot, and i mean a lot, of pain, (most of it needless, like not having the right version of stuffit compounded by an installer download that looked ok to the system and yet was in fact corrupted, not to mention the failed initial firmware update on the pod), the pod is hooked up as an asio device through the usb port!!
the integration is pure tastefulness, although it seems like there is a bit of confusion going on in the form of stuttering, and the thing just outright crashed a while ago. playback comes out through the headphone jack of the pod, and the thing has a 48k clock!!!! FUCK I AM READY FOR LAPTOP ACTION!!!! i haven’t tried hooking both the midisport and the pod up at the same time, i have a feeling that will be a ranking full stop. (shutdownicus). but so far, just goofing around a printing a git and a basss track, i am pretty psyched. ugggh this monitor makes a RAUCOUS buzz through the pickups though, and with the tasty quality of the digital input, you can really notice it.
well shit, i am psyched.
hey this mozillla isnt that bad, except for a lot of aliased fonts, and im not psyched about how it doesnt auto search for names like safari does. it always wants to get you to netscapes cheesy and massive (on 56k) portal site. but otherwise its kind of cool. and it has irc built in, which is pretty cool, because i havent really fucked around with it and now i might. and it has tabbed browsing, which im really excited about.
