Me too.

I've been thinking about doing this, myself.  I have a 6100/60, and
will soon buy something newer (180 MHz PowerComputing machine?) for
running Deck on.

I'd also like to write a virtual analogue synth (patchable) that
would work with it.

It should be able to work with the upcoming Korg audio card, 'cause
the Mac audio inputs are only around 70 db s/n.
