    Advantage(s) of kernel-level GSIF-2 MIDI

    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.

    Aloha,

    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.

    There are three components:

    Audio outputs: no change from GSIF-1
    Audio inputs: new. Didn't exist with GSIF-1
    MIDI inputs: lower latency. I'm not sure exactly how much lower, but every little bit helps.

    Mahalo nui loa (thanks very much! in Hawaiian), Jon -- at last, a concise explanation that makes sense. I appreciate your response.

    No problem. Say "hi" to Danimal to me. He apparently lives in a part of Hawaii called "North Dakota".
