Yes, That's really good. 5 sec is the boot time for my Roland Aerophone, a commercial product with synth inside.

I like very much this kind of news. This beats by far my old Win XP system that take 20 seconds from an IDE hard disk (100Mb/s only) :).

Please could you recall the hardware used and the maximum voices it can play (if you remember this).

Also i am convinced that boot time could be seriously reduced using hardware with on board flash memory. Anyway 4-5 s is really comfortable.

All the best
