I still can't get sound working on the blasted thing, though. I have vague recollections of dmasound_pmac being the appropriate thing on a previous kernel, but now - well, it works apparently perfectly in all respects except that of actually producing audible output. Yes I have tried a mixer.

Score one for kernel audio drivers, though. I then tried alsa and it locked the machine solid. Hmm

So after that I tried my laptop, but its icky i810audio stuff doesn't understand full-duplex. The card in the Alpha does, but that machine is firmly ensconced in the rats nest of stuff under the desk and is not about to get lugged downstairs to be near the guitar. http://www.griffintechnology.com/audio/imicmain.html" >This thing looks rather slick, though. And cheaper from the Apple Store than either of MikroAnvika or Technomatic. How long it'll take to arrive, though, I have no idea. In the meantime I can get some software-type stuff written. I'm sure it's not really necessary to drop into C just to do audio processing (and if it is, it's time to do some SBCL hacking to fix that)
