zynaddsubfx - http://zynaddsubfx.sourceforge.net/

Is an amazing multichannel, realtime 'analogue' synthesiser with fx using an FLTK gui. Does CXX00 range, overclocked, have enuff processing umph to run this? I need to find out!

seq24 - http://www.filter24.org/seq24/

fantastic, slimline GTK MIDI sequencer

specimen - http://gazuga.net/

virtual sampler, GTK based

audacity - http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Great wave editor

So, the idea is we get these ported to pdaXrom for a neat litle portable music making machine! I presume I'd be able to even get a USB MIDI adapter working with my C3000 (when the pdaXrom port gets finished) for the icing on the cake? I'm pretty sure thought that seq24 and specimen need ALSA, is this a problem?

I'm new to the world of the Zaurus and cross-compilng, so I've got a few questions:

Can I run pdaXrom binaries under X/QT (under Cacko)?

How big of a performance hit is there when running stuff under X/QT as compared to pdaXrom?

Could I get a Debian ARM binaries for these and run them under X/QT or pdaXrom?

iWMMX - Is it only programs that were coded to use MMX that can make use of this or can any multimedia prog be compiled with iwmmx and see performance gains?

Thanks for your help!

mmx code needs to be rewritten to take advantage of iwmmx tech, however you normally only need to add 2 letters to the frount of most instructions to make them work

intels idea was that there would be more programmers out there whowould prefer mmx from the x86 than some wierd new vectorisation stuff

the X/Qt stuff should work for all programs that depend only on X however there might be some problems with file/folders between the 2 distros that cause problems (tried installing a sharpRom program the other day and it thorgh up some problems than gave up)
