So it was just a bad PAL all along. I'm up and running!

Dreamblaster was nice enough to send a replacement free of charge, and he also threw in 2 more PALs and an awesome little MT-32 music box with the monkey island theme!! What a guy!

Yeah after giving Masterpiece a try I think I'm sold

Good for you! What game(s) did you try it on?

Micro ATX 486 - what's the degree of interest?

I'd like to buy one! Is it around €49 I just home my country doesn't go full retard and close the borders to imports.

I'm specially interested because I heard an AWE64 with good soundfonts, and it doesn't sound that far off from the Roland-55! Which is a good thing, if I'm on a budget!

There is a very decent 4mb SCC-1 soundfont that really mimics the Sound Canvas well, if you have a Gold AWE64. You dont need the SIMMCON for that. The 25mb (?) SC-55 soundfont is also very good but the upgrade is marginal. Other <28mb SC-55 soundfonts are garbage.

Masterpiece.sf2 is where the SIMMCONN magic is at.

Oh, I wish I could get my hands on one of those! But it would cost me half of my montly payment. So simmconn it is! I mean, a normal Value with Simconn would get the same quality as the Gold one, right? I really want to power up my Socket 7 and Slot 1 Pentium 3 machines... I want to get them completed by the end of the year, with the colourful connectors and everything! I really love how Awe64 sounds with soundfonts.
