Hi, Just wondering wether I should buy a Soundblaster 5.1 Digital card for my puter. Currently using onboard ESS-Solo chip. I use a Yamaha XG softsynth for all midi composing though, as the sound quality of onboard wavetables and even GS just sounds terrible. Would upgrading be worth it? Would I be able to start delving into the world of VST's etc. as I don't have ASIO support on my card. Are the soundfonts any good? Even though its only £30 I cant see getting much use out of it if I'm sticking with XG, unless there are advantages over my current setup. Games are fine at the moment, and I don't watch DVD's on the PC. Thanks for any advice. Fox.
