I am using the digital I/O feature very happily to transfer data from my

DAT directly to my hard disk. The board installed with no problem. All of

the inputs and outputs are virtually noise-free! The midi presets are

decent, and the MPU401 emulation works flawlessly. I have

added a 4mb sipp to the 4mb built-in memory as well as a 'Tsunami'

wave-table daughter board. I have been a GUS user for many years and

this is the first low-price card that competes with it, in my opinion.

I used to have a TS-10 from Ensoniq, a Wavestation SR from Korg, X5-Korg,

Quadraverb... and now I'm using just CakeWalk Pro Audio, some virtual analog

programs and the Maxi-Sound 64... it's doing great! No noise, bright and clean

audio... it's great! You can find some soundbanks for it over

Audio is good as well as low signal noise Drums good,other sounds only fair. Not of the quality I expected and what is the point of having an expandable memory when you can't add new sounds to replace the basic sounds (better than most cheaper cards)but not that great. I am seriously thinking of returning this product as it is not all it makes out to be. Good for gamers and amature midi, Sorry.

I think this card has great potential. It was a little tricky to install under W95 - I COULD NOT USE IRQ 2/9 FOR THE DREAM DSP, WHICH IS THE DEFAULT. If you have trouble, try to force W95's stupid "plug and pray" feature to use another IRQ for the DSP chip (I used 10 and everything was fine). The manuals are terrible and although I work as a software engineer for a consumer electronics manufacturer, I couldn't really get a complete grip on the card's architecture from the documentation. I'd like to use the digital inputs for straight unity gain, transparent transfer to a HDD, but I'm not sure the software will easily allow this - the supplied apps look a little "raw", to put it mildly. With clearly written manuals and decent software support this could easily be the best card on the market for all-purpose use, straddling the gaming, hobbyist, and low end pro segments easily at a killer price.

I have a Maxi-Sound Home Studio Pro with a Yamaha DB50 XG Daughterboard and a 16 meg memory expansion. I so far rate the card 5 out of 5 but would welcome contact from other users to exchange help and ideas as the manuals aren't that clear on certain things. Maybe I can help you with your problems.
