[alsa-devel] Possible option for driver development for Creamware/Sonic Core soon

Dear all,

I've recently acquired one of the less-recent Creamware Luna cards. After reading on Nabble that someone expressed an interest in ALSA drivers for these cards two years ago (and hearing from Paul Davis that he'd been unsuccessful in gaining enthusiasm from Creamware), I decided to get in touch with the community that supports these cards on forums.planetz.com

It appears that in 2006, Sonic Core bought Creamware, and began developing their own framework to program the DSPs on the original cards, plus some new creations by them. This platform is known as Scope, and the most current version is 5.1, which is compatible with Windows 32 and 64-bit operating systems.

However, they (Sonic Core) are working on Scope 6.0, which is intended to be a cross-platform system. From what I've been reading, they are using the JUCE framework as the basis of their development for this version, so they can target (primarily) Windows AND Mac OSX systems. Some interest has been noted for a Linux version too, after I started this thread: http://forums.planetz.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=31065
