If I understand correctly Kurzweil also sells their own modification of that daughterboard as expansion for their PC88 keyboard which brings GM compatibility and called this bord Kurzweil Voice/GM Expansion Board or Kurzweil VGM in short.
I wonder if it contains same GM bank like AVM General MIDI Engine and don't require any kind of preparations (sysex command, etc) for running in GM mode, in other words - waveblaster compatible "right-out-of-the-box" for gaming purposes. Thats would be cool.
Any thoughts about?

Could it be that the Soundengine has different pin settings too? I mean that it is not Waveblaster adapter compatible.
If one is able to investigate the pin settings it might be possible to use the board on a waveblaster Adapter.

I own a AVM Summit and a Kurzweil PC88MX Keyboard which includes the Kurzweil VGM Board.

Are you sure that every contact was good? Was the host soundcard 100% functional? If yes, then it seems that this DB requires some odd power lines (more +5v and even a -5v) and won't work without them...
