Real sampler support?

Would it be possible at all to support a real, hardware parallel port sampler on a PC running WinUAE?

I don't even think the parallel ports are 100% compatible so an adapter might be needed.

No, even if parallel port would not have any physical compatibility problems, it still would not work, timing would have far too much jitter.

It is impossible to have (hard) real time timing with external real hardware (at least without hard real time OS). Same problem with direct real floppy drive access.

(Why? Emulating parallel port sampler is possible and is already implemented, but it isn't that stable...)

The why is curiosity more than anything! Thanks for your explanation, Toni.

it's unusable in Octamed SS, in other apps sound is distorted.
