Well, I didn't have much time for making music lately. Maybe I have
one on monday. Stay tuned...

Furthermore even if transparency is done on the graphics board, it
still takes up more cpu-cycles. So my fine sessions with ~10
TAP-plugins and Jamin and hydrogen + transparency take up way to much
cpu-power (over 50% that is).

But even without transparency the speedup of graphics using the full
potential of the card (instead of the main processor) is nice... I
even went back to "Redraw windows while moving" instead of "Only show
window-borders while moving". :-)

Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
