Aparently i had similar problems with a sounblaster 128 using Ensoniq's chipset....what i did was to swap my soundcard with a soundblaster 128 which used the Creative ES1373 chipset...the Es1371 chip might work as well...


This might not be a possible solution but i just wanted to let u know
CheersSmilie
