I guess you are regarding to http://linuxwiki.de/EMC, but I just started
searching the web. Btw. when 'we' some old dino computer freaks
controlled stepper motors by DOS machines, we just controlled remoted
pics (oldish micro controllers - but not very old -, I guess you would
use DSPs or other micro controllers today, but would you use your MacOS,
Windows, Linux instead of external chips for fast and exact real-time
control?). While oldish machines without multitasking, e.g. the Atari ST
could control machines on real-time, at least for applications like
MIDI, I don't know if the Atari would be able to control a CNC machine,
I guess there are reasons for using external micro controllers when
controlling such machines, not only when using a MacOS, Windows PC,
Linux PC I never heard of MacOS, Windows PC, Linux PC that are used to
do it directly, without help of external micro controllers. But I hear -
never tested it myself - that Nuendo (for Windows) should be the first
and only MIDI capable PC software.
If jitter for MIDI is depending to chip sets - and I do belief that the
chip sets are important - why aren't there trustful black- and
whitelists for that hardware?
I should shut my mouth and lurk too.
