Hmmm... what do you mean with this? Does MagiC work with both SIMS
enabled or not?

Well if someone realy wants me to, I could make the Config Tool for version
5 work with 4 as well. But I wont do it if there isn't enough demand for
it as there are alot of switches to set there.....

Anyone desperatly needing it? Hmm... I might do it for my own sake, but I
don't change much these days as it works fine for me.

Strange. I have tested alot of DSP programs under MagiC and almost all work,
except some which doesn't work under TOS either. All the problems I wrote about
some time ago had to do with the fact that the 040 was to fast so using handshake
was necessary.

Give me a program and I will test it and see if it works or not.
