I *think* I have one of these cards somewhere in my storage. Just never had the time to try it out 😅

Here's a thread about the card, as well as some info on how to add the sample ROM: Weames PA-9050-B (AD Echo) ROM (?) sockets

ah thanks for that
seems it does not worth the effort to "upgrade" this card

AD Echo based cards have low quality MIDI engine. There are plenty of them by different manufacturers. Probably the most well-known among them is Orchid SoundWave 32.

As the person behind that other thread: if you're in it for the good sound - don't bother.

If you want an 'interesting' MIDI implementation unlike others, then it might be worth a shot, but purely for curiosity.
