that subject came up beforebut hey=2C we are all big kids really.
If you are sequencing then the latency is a non-issue=2C well=2C unless you=
wantflashing LEDs in step to the music. As long as the different tracks ar=
e in steptheir is not a big problem with lag. FX processing is out of the q=
uestion=2C andmost live work as you cannot play 42ms of latency.

Alien Android. Man=2C this harks back to the days when people were claiming=
that the i386 emulator on Mac systems was actually faster than a PC. Dalvi=
cis FOSS and yes=2C it is being ported onto the iPad=2C PlayBook and other =
systems.There are some issues though. If the app uses the JNI then the back=
end libraries are going to be ELF but are there not going to be some linkin=
g problems at run time from the differences between Darwin and Android?

&gt=3B there are some very cool synths starting to appear for the iPad=
