OQO

February 19, 2006 | 3:18 am

I recently acquired an oqo model 01.

http://www.oqo.com/hardware/basics/

it might be useful for those considering such a purchase to run
Max/MSP/Jitter that PACE copy protection doesn’t support Transmeta
CPUs. This is quite disappointing as it is the only windows machine I
own therefore I’m not able to make patches on it. Cycling 74 support
suggested using runtime and making patches on my powerbook. this does
me no good for objects that are windows only..such as jit.atari2600

i still have 11 days left on my demo period. let me know if anyone
would like me to try to run patches for them to see what potential
performance might be on such a machine.

also, the splash screen is too big to fit onto the display…any way to
resize this under windows?
additionally, it takes a long time for Max to launch on this
machine…approximately 5 minutes. any suggestions on making this a
bit shorter?

That’s a real shame, as from what I hear it’s a nice piece of
hardware (although I don’t know what you’re doing for audio I/O).

Do iLoks not work either?

one more feeble attempt at getting attention…
any news on PACE and transmeta CPUs?

I might recommend you contact PACE directly with this issue. Sorry
that this is so annoying.

I actually emailed them yesterday and asked "what can I do for a
temporary solution or a workaround until it works on my Transmeta
machine"? This is the response I got:

Hello Casey,

InterLok protected software must be run on a machine which is either
Intel or
AMD processor based.

We would recommend the use of an Intel or AMD processor based system to
resolve this matter for you.

Oh well.

it would probably be good if you put on your website somewhere that max
on windows-xp means intel or amd only. i know it may seem trivial but
its been a bit of a time (and money!) sinkhole for me.

thanks for paying attention, in any case.
