    Hi all,

    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?

    I recently saw a modular iLive mess up it’s mix configuration in such a way that certain input channels wouldn’t pass signal to the LR bus. Straight reboots didn’t help but changing the configuration settings to make it “reboot” it’s bus structure got it working again.

    Is the GLD susceptible to this sort of fun? [:D]

    Yup that makes a ton of sense! That’s how FPGAs work, state until told to reprogram.

    No idea about the GLD though

    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 :)

    Interesting so it’s probably still a JRE then… But I’m curious because the Qu-16 seems too small to fit a full x86.

    Maybe A&H can chip in, or else it’ll be time to get a rental and a screwdriver!
