32bit MIDI drivers progress website launchedPublished: 29th Mar 2007, 19:20:23 | Permalink | Printable
Can it play the Never Ending Story theme?The release of Liquid Silicon's 32bit MIDI drivers are said to be 'imminent' following the launch of a website detailing the software's progress. The new webpage on the company's site details known problems with the software, which range from unreliable playback to issues with early RiscPCs using 8-bit sound hardware.
Liquid Silicon have demonstrated their 32bit MIDI drivers at a number of shows, including last year's Wakefield event, after first mentioning the project in 2005. The drivers are said to be A9home and Iyonix compatible.
LS's Alan Gibson said he hoped to make the drivers available "as soon as possible" as a commercial product. He also said the software can power older MIDI kit as well newer USB-based hardware.
He said: "It just needs putting together, with documentation, pricing etc. I've got a few tweaks to do with Player - this is supplied with everything so I want to fix that before any stuff goes out.
"MIDI 5 and MIDISupport together provide modern drivers for older cards and new developments (e.g. USB), allowing for multiple connections between several interfaces and software applications simultaneously.
"For example, MelIDI or Sibelius could play a MIDI keyboard externally and MIDISynth internally at the same time."
Liquid Silicon have also redesigned their website ahead of a move to a new server host.
