Hi all!

I used to play MIDI with AWE-64 with 24 MB RAM extention.

So I could use the SF2 soundfonts.
Unfortunately, the AWE-64 requires an EISA slot.

Could please enybody recommend a PCI successor of the
AWE64 which allows loading of SF2 soundfonts.

Please do not recommend Audigy! This is a lie! The
Audigy ALSA driver accidentally  drops some
tones.  This is a known bug, but
apparently nobody is willing to fix this



Furthermore it ignores reverbation and
chorus instructions.

Please do not recommend FluidSynth. To avoid
misundersandings: Actually FluidSynth is a good
software. But it produces wrog envelopes for
strings and clarinets. The envelops are
like xylophone (or so ...)

I alreay mentioned this problem on this list.
But without success.
