can actually get a version of the APS dirvers that is fully operational on the
SBLive family of cards. For more information, go to
used this driver set for a quite a while now and it is perfectly stable and
gives a great range of plugins.
What I really wonder is - The soundblaster live
(1024, platinum, 5.1, oem...) is one of the more diffused soundcards around -
is it possible that no plug-ins programmer has tried to create a plug-in that
uses its dsp? it is a powerful - not used chip- it is used less (way less)
that on the Emu APS, so a great part of its power lies there unused in our PC.
And this could even be useful to create 3d plug-ins for that card, as it has
two stereo outs (not counting the spdif). The only audio software that tries
to exploit the power of a soundblaster live (at least the only one I heard
about during the C.I.M. - Colloquium Of Musical Informatics which was held in
L'Aquila (Italy) in the last summer) is the C-Sound, but it isn't that easy to
use, and not every musician wants to be a programmer, but under the windows
platform I couldn't find anything.
