I've been able to get the vic patch to work,  but I cannot get rat 4.4.01 to function.  In the RAT preferences, it always reverts to "No Audio Device" instead of "Default OSX Audio Device".

I hit this exact issue back when Snow Leopard first came out and haven't found a fix yet.  I suspect that it'll require some work on RAT itself to get running on Snow Leopard and, considering how poorly it was running even under Leopard, I'm not feeling very confident we'll be seeing a fix very soon.  My current advice to Mac folks is, unfortunately, stay with Leopard to run AG, or use a Linux or Windows box.

Of course, I'd love to be corrected here.  Does anyone have AG running under Snow Leopard?
