how to set sound output to specific sound card

    May 13 2013 | 7:25 pm
    hey forum,
    i am making a simple 4 channel sound player for an installation. since the installation is running for some time, it has to power on and off automatically. everything works fine, except once in a while max chooses the wrong soundcard for the patch, and my sound is channeled to the internal speakers, and not my soundcard!
    i figured out that with 'adstatus option 1', i can populate a list with available soundcards, but the list is populated in a different order sometimes, making me choose the wrong soundcard.
    is it possible to choose the soundcard from the name it has, ie. something like 'adstatus option "M-Audio FireWire 410"'?
    alternatively compare the created list with the name of the soundcard somehow, and then choose the right number on the list?
    thank you,

      ok, i ended up figuring this out myself:
      with some zl compare, zl delace and uzi tricks i managed to iterate through the list, and select the wanted option, if there was a match by name with the soundcard i was interested in.
      having a way to specify soundcard by name directly through adstatus would be nice though, to keep things simple.
