Specifically, just what is the supposed advantage of having "kernel-level" GSIF-2 MIDI functionality on a sound card?
I keep hearing comments to the effect that "it doesn't make much difference" -- but regardless of whether it's a large or important difference, I still don't know what that difference is supposed to be, true or not.
P.S. This question was originally posted on another thread -- but I realized it was probably straying too far afield from the original issue, so I have repeated it here. Sorry if I'm breaking an etiquette rule.
