16026.3.589.1 EMPLANT, Sound and the Picasso II!
9/3/93 19:16 19/1077 rmunoz

Hi All!

Well, just wanted to let you know that I am currently testing a version
of the EMPLANT software that provides SOUND support!  So far it is
incredible!  The games really come to LIFE!  I just got Arashi, a
Tempest clone, and this thing is INCREDIBLE!  And ofcourse, with my
Picasso II and the 4 Picasso video drivers, the speed of the Mac emulation
is incredible!  Once again, Jim and Joe have done an incredible job,
both with the sound support, the Picasso drivers and the overall emulation!
For those interested about the Picasso, you may want to drop by the
Picasso area (which I think is under construction) by 'go picasso'.  In
anycase, the usage of the Picasso is a very, very TRANSPARENT graphics
card from the point of view of the user!!! AWESOME card, which makes
my A3000 with EMPLANT just Amazing!  I believe that Jim Drew will be
showing the sound support at the WOC, and I am not sure if he is going to
release it before the show, since they are still working on it, but so
far it is GREAT!  Aah... What a difference the emulation makes now...
