Just curious if anyone has played with anything from Atmel's Dream Sound Synthesis family?

From Atmel's product page (http://atmel.com/dyn/products/product_card.asp?part_id=4142):

The ATSAM2195 is a complete, single-chip, low-cost MIDI sound system. It requires only input of standard MIDI signals by its serial or parallel input and provides stereo audio output. It includes state-of-the-art sound synthesis using a full GM sound set together with a range of compatible effects.

To me, it looks like a great way to get some neat sound capabilities into an Arduino project. I'm going to order a few of the ATSAM2195s, but just thought I'd see if anyone else has used these yet...

Looks a great chip, it's only 3v3 so there is a bit of fiddling to get it to work with 5V systems.
However, who stocks them in Europe?

No clue! I'm requesting some samples from Atmel- if you're willing to help take a look at it and you'd like me to send you one drop me a PM.
