I realised that it is now (Max/MSP 4.6) possible to unconnect an audio
interface, and later reconnect it, choose the driver again (still
remains in the menu) and it works. Great!
But there is nothing which could be done better:
As Max obviously recognises the change of the driver (I get a message in
the Max window). It could update the menus filled by adstatus
automatically. That would allow to add an interface without the need of
restarting Max. (Sure its not really urgent ;-)
If I set the Powerbook (1.5 GHz PPC) to sleep, I still need to choose
the driver once, to reset it and it will work after that. Wouldn’t it be
possible to automate this as well?
Ah, when I think about it, I can patch it (with a simplified version of
my wakemess abhaXion):
