I have a fairly old (about 1998) yet expensive PCI audio card (Yamaha SW1000XG). I'd love to keep it as it's basically a really nice synth in PCI form and the sounds on it are great. Unfortunately Yamaha seemed to have dropped support for it in 2002 and they have no plans to release a Vista driver for it. There's also been compatibility problems creeping up with some new boards with it.
There's a massive back story as to why I need to upgrade to a new system rather than keep my current one for audio work and have another seperate new system but it would take 700+ words to explain!
So, to get to the point I was wondering if there is any way to keep this old PCI card like using a PCI caddy that then plugs into USB/Firewire (if such a God-sent device exists)? Or is there a way to have it running in a new system?
Any suggestions/ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time,
