For the devel list only.
The musician I was talking about is one of the most sophisticated people
I know and one of Germany's most gifted and wanted jazz musicians, but
he is a completely idiot regarding to technical issues. I wish that
software and distro developers would know people like him, to understand
what musicians do need and to understand what technical bullshit,
regarding to musicians, does mean.
Every idiot is able to use recording hardware, but even (some)
sophisticated people are unable to use audio apps for any OS.
I hope that some day there would be some audio computer solutions that
could be used by the averaged musician.
Take care of this when doing 64 Studio OEM stuff. Not everybody is an
64studio-devel mailing list
