I agree, the concept of leaving the SB in solitary confinement and have all the MIDI modules hanging from the MPU-401 makes sense.
I just bought a 3 way audio switch to plug the MIDI modules in, and I'll join the audio switch output with the output of the Sound Blaster with an adapter. That will go to the input of my stereo amplifier.
Speaking of noisy, muffled, horrible audio quality of the SB, I was wondering if disabling the internal audio amplifier would improve things.
I already disabled gain in MIXERSET and lowered volume levels, and it helped somewhat.
I have read some bits over the net, but I never could find any definitive information on how to do it (JP18 and JP19 for the CT3910, or JP20 and JP21 for the CT3900 are the key it seems).
Does anyone have any information on how to do it?
