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?
