LA or wavetable synthesis. MT-32, GUS, or high-quality GM sound card/daughterboard (preferably all).

The Sound Blaster Pro already has a Yamaha YMF chip.
It does not have a connector for a daughterboard.

I would have to get something like the Edison Gold Sound card for that.

What about video?
What was the Best VLB video card back in 1993/94 ?

You just need a Sound Blaster 16 or any 16-bit sound card with MPU-401 compatibility and a wavetable header (like a Yamaha Audician). Not sure why you bring up such an unusual card like the Edison.

I have a Sound Blaster 16 1740 and 1770 with Yamaha OPL3 chip.
These have a Wave Table connector and are dated 1992 and 1993.
What Wave table add-on card would you recommend ?
Dream Blaster X2 ?
Yucatan ?
Other ?

Would 20ns DRAM be okay for this video card ?
