i just got a brand new mobo and cpu and this time i want to use (if i can) my delta 1010 and my emu aps cards at the same time. i know that i will be able to use them both in the same computer to some extent, but i don't know how far i go with this. i'm mainly wanting to throw the emu in there for the soundfont ablity and the cd play back (delta 1010 can't play back cds) but it would definetly be a plus if i could use the 4 anolog and the 2 digital ins that are on the emu ... the both have asio what do you think?

i don't see why not, brock. as long as they each have their own IRQ they should be just fine. Alot of us are running two soundcards. Myself, I have a card just for games and stuff. Some people need MIDI and SF and stuff. No problem.

BTW, I know that the Delta PCI card doesn't have the analog CD cable input on it, but you can still listen to CDs if you can find a program that uses the IDE data cable instead. I use the media player that came with my ATI AGP videocard. Works fine.

here's a thread on playing CDs thru your Delta card:

CDs through the delta? Never been a problem for me, I just plop the CD into the the drive, it loads up windows media player and then plays the cd.

Yeah but Window$ Media Player uses Digital Extraction (like Jamie Said) instead of good old analouge transfer.

Xp also has digital extraction as standard.

with computer's getting faster and faster the old analog cable between CDROM and soundcard might just become obsolete

and jues, it's "analog"! hehe :O)
