Re: Softrock EMU Linrad

Well - a little more research shows that Alberto knows about this
delay, maybe you can communicate with him and put the same into a new
release of Linrad when you get around to it?

Here is what I just found over on weaksignals.com regarding Winrad 1.3
(build 13)

 - "One to four samples delay insertable on the left or on the right
channel, to accomodate for the EMU-1212M "
