I'm using that Lexicon card on almost everything since February 2000. I found it great, it has only some little bugs in its drivers. (Please everybody write lexicon to remember them that the Athlons are equal to or better than Intels.) The drivers have some bugs (read the read.me of the various driver updates), they are non 100% compatible with AMD processors and motherboards. I'm currently using it in a Duron machine, and I have used it for a year on a PII 266, and I find it great, expecially the dbx feature on the analog ins. I've even used it in a studio and with almost every program existing for the Win98 O.S., and I've got great results. P.S. for the S.B. Live question. Have you all ever tried to use it with ASIO drivers? For an amateaur or for game playing that is a great card, you could even try to use it with Sound Fonts, and get great results, but don't try to use it for VST2.0 virtual synths in real-time under cubasis or cubase vst. Beside, where the heck are the features announced from Creative Labs on Liveware 3? They announced Dinamic Memory Allocation for the sound fonts. where is it? Hi all, Luigi.
