Probably not. The problem is CAF it self. You better mail bomb Steinberg
about it. Regarding the problem with wrong channels on the wrong output
is a bug in CAF, atleast I have heard about it before so it has not got
anything to do with the AB040.

Have you tried Doug's CAF fix? It can atleast fix a few problems if not
all of them.

What does NEM_LOW mean? Regular 16MHz bus and 32MHz DSP?

Have you tried to run without the caches?

I don't think so but try it. This problem surely points out that CAF does
some realy hair raising tricks. How they h*ll do you manage something like

Anyway, how much would people pay for a new sequenser which works properly
with even more tracks than 16? I might know of someone who might do it. It
will probably not have all the wistles and bells (and bugs) of CAF but would
work and do what you want.
