Hi Christoph,

so this includes *me*? As I explained in an earlier post, I did MIDI
when we were still using DOS, but audio was (at that time) far without
reach - with *any* operating system. Audio was still pre-ADAT, so we're
talking 24-track tape machines...

Coming back now and learning about USB-MIDI and kernel latencies seems
harder than I thought, because nowadays' machines are way faster than
these in the old days (I started with a 286 and later had a P1). Now I'm
reading since days, and still I don't really figure out basics like: are
you guys still on kernel 2.4.x? Is it my attempt to use 2.6 which gets
me into trouble?

The first versions of Cubase (on Atari and later on PC) I saw *were*
somewhat fire&forget, so I see the point of the whole discussion (I
think). Is it easier nowadays? If we speak only Linux, then maybe (with
regards to DeMuDi and the planet), but if we see the big picture and
think about the time in between and the demand of a "simple" musician
who wants to plug & play, then there maybe is a point to that article on

Note that I *don't* want Windoze back. I'm a sysadmin, and my life would
be much easier without it ;-)
