    Do these 2 work together? I was reading on these threads that Audiophile 2496 doesn't support midi.
    :confused:

    No problem. The Audiophile has MIDI-in/outs btw, just no onboard Wavetable sounds.

    Windows has a built-in Synthesizer, called Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth, so you don't need an onboard wavetable or synth.

    BIAB works just fine. Also, BIAB used to have Virtual Sound Canvas included, so you can use that too.

    Please let use know what you think of it when you use it. I'm looking into getting an audio/MIDI interface for my Powerbook G4, and the 2496 is on my list.
     
  5. there are advantages to keeping the SB card as well. I recently aquired a new pc without a SB card and I miss the soundfont capability especially for drums and organ.

    To my knowledge you can't run soundfonts on the Windows synth.

    I've ended up running back through my SR16 for midi to audio drums and it's somewhat limiting.
