Ooh I've been meaning to test this for a while – so I've just plugged
my M-Audio 49-e into the XO (release 8.2-767), and tried each of the
TamTam suite... Unfortunately it seems to have no effect :-(
This was only a very quick attempt, I'll try a deeper look and see if
anything obvious is borked, will likely poke about with csound in the
raw and see what I can pick-up:
I'm guessing this may well work, or at least used to, as I found this
flicker shot of Simon and Walter testing an early board prototype :-)
Anyone else tried, or can point me in the right direction (is there
some /dev I should look for)?
