Well, everybody's telling me that Akai's OS is something else. Realtime
stuff and 2 or 3 engines and DSPs to manage. Besides, we have to support
akai's native file formats, like PROGRAM, MULTI and Sequence.
I really don't know why... I'm just hearing what everybody says. You
think it shouldn't be that hard to port Linux and develop the effects
and stuff, and to support Akai's native format? Would you give me some
arguments and reasons?
Thanks for the input!
