Topic: Anyone been using the Emu APS with GS..

    Anyone been using the Emu APS with GS..

    Hi There

    I cannot afford either a mixtreme or pulsar but have been looking at replaceing my Montego II with an APS using the 1.5 drivers that are supposed to support Directsound.

    Current setup is a ISIS card with low end AMD pentium, 64mb ram,6Gb H/D already running GS LE..

    The specs on the card are rather nice. I\'ve heard one a couple of times. I do like the thought of running EMU soundfonts to augment GS stuff but running Audio and midi with the DSP\'s on the card...

    Anyone been doin it..

    Peace to all GS users

    Hello Kia,

    Have you acquired any additional information about the APS soundcard since you posted this topic, because I am looking for a good soundcard at the moment under $800, and the APS with built in DSP with high quality effects is very appealing.

    Hi Jan

    On EMU\'s web site is the latest drivers for the APS (1.5) It states that the driver supports directsound as well as ASIO.

    I haven\'t heard from anyone using it on this site yet so there has been no new developments. I wanted a mix of GS & EMU\'s soundfonts with a DSP. However .....

    I downloaded 1.6GS upgrade and the latest drivers from Guillemot and viola I can get low latency and my ISIS cards now works from the front panel of the external ISIS box. I could get the converter from Synoptics to convert SF2 files to Guillemots 94b format for about £80. The DSP on the ISIS only works with the copy of Logic 3.6 silver and I use Cakewalk so I might have to switch to Logic if I wanted to use the DSP\'s on the card.

    Nothings ever easy is it.

    Hope this helps

    I have a SB Live! Value, hardware mod to enable analog output, Emu APS 1.5 drivers with patch to make it work with SB Live! Gigasampler seems to work fine, in conjunction with SoundFonts and vst audio tracks (on a different hard drive from that storing gig files). ASIO and DirectSound seem to work together well and coexist peacefully.

    I use GS with an APS and it runs great. It has low latency, I can use the APS reverb on the GS sound, and I can also use soundfonts to augment the polyphony.

    To Bmtong.
    Your approach is indeed very interesting. My question is whether the APS driven, MOC enabled SBlive is recognized by GS as a multiple output card. This would open new avenues for GS real time processing.
    Best regards,

    Sorry, you only get a single stereo pair so far.
