I know it's an old card but has anyone else used one? I've been offered a CT4520 which is the IBM OEM version. Is it full duplex? What does it mean by "no IDE cdrom interface"? Can I still play audio CDs with this card? Any info. greatly appreciated.

As I vaguely remember in my foggy brain
there was certain problems conserning
full dublex in this card, I guess it was
perhaps possible if play-back was
restricted to 8 bit, there was many
"stories" and romours how to make the
shit working, but It was legendary for
it´s bad timing and I remember changing
to an an ensoniq "audio-pci" for full-
dublex use,... back then.

Now adays I would only use the AWE as
a extra midi-port or to add "sampler"
functions of the EMU-8000 chip, but its
suffering from restricted hardware ram

The CD-rom connectors was actually found
on the sound-card´s in ancient days, so
that people could expand when their main
controller didn´t allow

so pete if you have plenty of time try to
struggle a bit with this old card, but if
you could afford at least a live-card it
could save you much pain

Although AWE64 is quite an old card, it does not really matter, as long as you use the right programs. I have used Fruityloops and AWE64 for about two years now, and with that combo you can make excellent music. So, besides AWE64 you should really get Fruityloops...and plugins, lots of them...
