I just wanted to say thanks to all those who responded to my request
for information on sound cards that I posted about two weeks ago. I
received upward of 50 emails on the subject, and all the information
was very much appreciated.
I elected to solve my problem by purchasing a PCI sound card. I was
going to get the new Ensoniq, but found a very similar one that uses
the Ensoniq drivers locally, made by Siig, Inc.
The card is working in the system, but still took over my last IRQ
(9), but everything is working off that one IRQ. I had thought that
by using PCI, the IRQ would be shared, but it didn't, and I now have
two PCI steering IRQs in the system, 9 and 11. (?)
I did have some problems with the installation of the card, and I had
to figure it out for myself. Siig tech support really sucks big time,
and I would have to advise anyone contemplating the purchase of a Siig
product to look elsewhere, unless they like being on their own.
Again thanks for all the help!
