Open Architecture Synthesis, Effects, & Audio I/O OASYS PCI integrates professional-quality synthesis, effects processing, and computer audio input and output into a single, professional PCI audio card - the perfect complement to any MIDI sequencer or digital audio workstation. Much more than just an audio card, OASYS PCI offers a vast array of professional synthesis and effects processing tools, including some of the best synths and effects available at any price. Even better, it's fueled by a powerful system of dedicated DSPs, leaving your main CPU free to play back audio tracks and run host-based plug-ins. To learn more, see the OASYS PCI Overview. If you already use a different audio I/O solution, such as MOTU PCI-324 or Digidesign ProTools, OASYS PCI adds exceptional Korg-quality synthesizers and effects to your system without burdening your CPU.
