A site for laptop musicians.

For example it describes

The EMU8710ps is a GM/GS-compatible wavetable synth enhanced with 2 MB of SoundFont RAM. It's also a 16-bit/44.1kHz full duplex* audio card which, when connected to the optional breakout box, features S/PDIF optical digital outputs. (*Mono record/Stereo playback) EMU8710ps

These quotes from a newsgroup post suggest to me a reason for considering using a sound module with JAMMER Live instead of Gigasampler. In the latter case, you have to worry about the copy protection scheme. Perhaps it is not a big deal to carry the CDROM around. But it adds another complication. Sometimes my CDROM reader cannot read a CDROM, sometimes they get scratched. JAMMER Live is much more user friendly in this respect.


"When I talked to Nemesys tech support to get my Gigasampler working (wrong key being sent from their website) they did say that GigaSTUDIO will have a CD-based copy protection key so they will not be doing the mysterious hard-drive encryption. So I imagine that scheme caused headaches for Nemesys as well as their customers!"

"I have ReBirth 2, and seldom use it due to the fact I need to find the CD,
insert it, wait for the CD to cycle up, then run the app. And, the CD
'checking' process takes an added ten seconds. So, I have over a minute of
wait time."
