[Haskell-cafe] Using `jack` on Windows, sounds realistic?

Hi Henning,

Thanks for your quick answer (and your awesome libraries by the way)!

I'm afraid I didn't make myself clear:
I have *not* tried yet to install and use the binding on windows.

I was wondering if that was a reasonable thing to hope for, as most of my
friends run windows and I wanted them to try my synth :-)

It's good to hear the package was built with that in mind! I'll probably
setup a virtual machine in near future and give it a try... I'll surely let
you if I run into issues.

BTW1: Oh nice, I just registered to that list!
BTW2: Synthezire is a wonderful project thanks for that! I actually read
some of the code already, but as I'm really begining in the domain I
prefered to start from scratch (to understand well how things fit
together), I'll probably try to reuse part of your code later, that's a
very impressive work you have done here!
