11. Sound cards

11.1 Supported

11.2 Others

11.3 Unsupported

The ASP chip on Sound Blaster 16 series and AWE64 is not supported. AWE32's onboard E-mu MIDI synthesizer is not supported.

Nathan Laredo <> is willing to write AWE32 drivers if you send him a complimentary card. He is also willing to write drivers for almost any hardware if you send him free samples of your hardware.

Sound Blaster 16's with DSP 4.11 and 4.12 have a hardware bug that causes hung/stuck notes when playing MIDI and digital audio at the same time. The problem can happen with either Wave Blaster daughterboards or MIDI devices attached to the MIDI port. There is no known fix.
