On my desktop machine:
SBLive Value with MIDI interface adapter
2 Yamaha TX802 FM synths
1 DMP11 mixer
On the laptop:
But the truth is that I rarely use the synths anymore. If I can get FM7
running under WINE or fst then I'll probably sell the 802s.
No problems configuring either interface. Slight difficulties re: USB
MIDI were resolved thanks to Clemens' advice here on LAU.
