The issue isn't with 68k/OS3.x's ability to handle the interface, but rather the HivelyTracker replayer. This is 16 channels of precision-stereo through AHI, so it's software mixed before being shoved through Paula, and each channel also has dual effects columns... So the replay routine currently needs at least 68060, and even my 060/60 struggles with HivelyTracker a little bit. Fair play, of course, since Hively was written specifically for OS4 and it's only thanks to Buzz^IRIS' sterling efforts (and my incessant nagging) that it was backported to 3.X we have to live with the performance issues
Well then that DOES explain why this is the case, so forgive my ignorance in relation to this, i appreciate the input

Well all i run is a Blizzard 030 over here so that would be REAL NICE if that was able to come about!. Keep us posted on it

And along with TBL, you guys are scene legends! Thanks for all the great work over the years
