Looking for some info on how the underlying system GLD runs on differs from iLive. I know iLive is a bunch of 56k’s and some FPGA’s for routing, with a dedicated touchscreen computer. Is GLD the same, or are we looking at a mostly FPGA system?

There’s definitely a PC in there running Linux – you see the BIOS screen and Linux starting to boot. I have had mine hang hard so that the touchscreen and all the controls are unresponsive, but audio continued to flow. I would imagine therefore that the main mixer is a bunch of FPGAs and perhaps some DSPs, but all the control surface and display is driven by the PC.

But that’s just my speculation :)
