I don't think any patents on the transwave tech are still standing, but there might still be copyrights on the waves themselves. I'm sure Creative would love to sue over the use of those, if they still own the IP.

Maybe team up with Dave Rossum and someone from the old Ensoniq (I can never remember those guys' names) to dream up an update with modern z-planes and transwaves and whatnot and put out a grand unified Emusoniq synth.
