I didn't imagine that MIDI over ip would have good enough latency for
getting work done. Pardon my ignorance but are you sending back the sampler
playback via ip too?

I was hoping to get away with LinuxSampler but your whole ipMIDI thing
intrigues. One thing I liked about Sonivox libraries were the available
DVI's with included effects which I assume are better for their bundled
instrument than what I could find on my own.

(I don't have a good Windows box handy but I do have an 18 month old
iMac that should work well.)

So should I imagine a universe where I run Sonivox cutesey DVIs on OSX and
yank the audio back to Jack on Linux but not notice the latency?
