Well, when you know that the Clavia NordLead uses a Motorola 56002 DSP and
that this machine is polyphonic... and is very expensive when you compare
its price to the price of the DSP (about $30-$40). As far as I know, the price
for a DSP56002 evaluation board is about $200... If you can implement good
simulations of Moog Filters and others, it is not as stupid as it seems at first
