dont forget 8 op [88 alg]

In a MIDI plug? That would be really impressive :D

I got the feeling that the biggest issue for the design was the tiny current available in the MIDI current loop. He had to select a controller carefully to get the power/performance ratio he needed. He kind of mentioned there were loads of ARM chips with the built-in audio DAC and lots of different RAM/ROM combinations.

He set himself some strict design limitations and worked within that envelope. I do wonder if he had allowed himself the luxury of an external power input how far he could have pushed the synth algorithms.

Have some sympathy for such a bad case of exterior potentia copiaphobia.
