  1. Too bad the SD cards are in a proprietary format. I would have considered buying one had I been able to load my own sounds as PCM wave, or even with a conversion utility.

  3. I asked about Neosynth availability on the Waveidea forum a couple of months ago and mid-October was tenuously slated. I hit their website looking for news occasionally but I can’t find any updates – although CME are never quick out of the blocks! I also think that the closed-format thing probably isn’t the brightest idea anyone’s ever had and if I was buying a synth expansion card I’d like a little more thrown in than just a GM soundset. Depending on the quality of the hardware I’d probably be happy to pay a little more if the package included an editor so I could roll myown soundbanks, rather than rely on a company that updates it’s site once per milennium.

  4. Postscript:
    I just took a look at the Waveidea online shop. Out of four listed products, two have been discontinued and one is out of stock. Oh dear.
