      Edirol usb midi interfaces (um 3x) have os 9 drivers and work fine on my blue and white g3 mac.

      I actually traded down for oasys: from a dual 1.25 ghz G4 to a lowly g3. The other guy was setting up an email computer for his dad. We had a laugh about our old mac computers.

      From my Android phone on T-Mobile. The first nationwide 4G network.

      the osasys is a more advanced software version

      the trinity and triton synthesis and the z1 and prophecy

      are what use the oasys synth types

      the ms2000 the radias the r3 use the newer synth software version that the oasys keyboard uses

      one of the main designers behind the oasys card and the original keyboard left korg to work for creamware

      on the scope dsp system

      he now makes his own synth from all his nowledge working at moog sequencial korg

      the synth is the solaris and john bowen who was behind many of korgs great early synths

      Not used an OASYS keyboard, so can't compare to the O-PCI.

      But on the sounds: yes, you have a number of different synthesis engines available, some with more attributes than others. And you can load in samples as well.

      I've not used it extensively but have had lots of fun so far - that said I have already run in to DSP dropouts with even simple Multis - just not enough power to have a sets of beats, bass AND a Motion pad. You have to cut things down to get a full workable palette.

I got a Mac G3 on the cheap and replaced its single proc with a dual G4. Running OS 9, of course, for the SynthEdit. I'm still trying to get a MIDI device working. Modern M-Audio doesn't like OS 9. I have a complete set of the old eMagic MIDI adapters made by MOTU, along with a pile of newer MOTUs. I swear, as soon as I finish cleaning the house, I will get to it! Sometimes you go through a lot for a dream. Especially after I didn't have enough left for a full OASYS after getting all the other synths. <he said chuckling> Is the OASYS-PCI more or less programmable than the OASYS? Anyone know? Someday, I'll have one... Anyway, OS 9, XP, 98, what's the diff? Are you able to make the SOUNDS? That's the question. If it's working as designed, who cares which OS?

The range, quality and expressiveness of the synths, especially the physical modelling, combined with the effects... and so on.. make it a must have in my view. Shame the Kronos is missing most of the waveguide models, bit hopefully Korg will have something on the market that delivers those before my Oasys goes to synth card Valhalla.

Even with Win98 running in a VBox, the host OS would still need native drivers to allow the client VM to communicate with the hardware. I ran into this problem trying to use the Edirol Motion Dive .tokyo console with a Windows 7 x64 laptop. The Motion Dive has no 64-bit drivers. A Windows XP 32-bit client in a VM session could not communicate with the Motion Dive because the host 7 x64 has no drivers for it. I have to use the Motion Dive with an older laptop installed with Windows XP 32-bit. It always comes down to some clever coder back-hacking and creating new drivers to fill the void. It's the only way it will be done.
