Actually, all three of us echoplex people (aurisis research, really) are on
the list. Eric never posts at all, but Matthias does - he's the main guru!

Also, Motley, from Boomerang is here, and chimes in sometimes. Bob Sellon
and Greg Hogan of Lexicon used to be on the list, but haven't been lately.
People from a variety of other companies lurk here too, tc, korg, opcode,
emu, various others. Yes, virginia, there are real people on the other side
of the wall who make this stuff. Mostly just regular musicians like you
with some electronics knowledge, passion, and crazy dreams. You do it
because you love it, it sure doesn't make you rich!

no no, it's a completely different thing from a PC soundcard situation. The
Echoplex uses a chip from Crystal, who makes some of the best digital audio
parts. There's no driver from Crystal or anything like that. Our software
just communicates directly with the chip to transfer the digital audio in
and out of memory. (same as it communicates with other chips on the
board...)  Nothin' to worry about there, this stuff is all completely
invisible to the user...
