Re: A rather insalubrious piracy advert from 1990

Yeah - I did 16 months hard labour in Borstal when the fuzz found a pirate copy of 'Jet Set Willy' under my matress. If I ever see that Dave 'Big ears' Perkins again, I'm gonna ask for my Quickshot II joystick back off him. Dobbing bastard! AND he snogged my girlfriend... *edit* Ahahaha! Just notice...

Yes - the X-station acts as a USB soundcard, midi controller keyboard and sound module. The inernal synth engine and midi messages can go through the USB cable (to a...
