Together with the editorsoftware XG-Gold (they give you 3000 sounds and still you can create your own...) and XG-edit this card is more worth than a f..n damn $1000 workstation. Go and get it.

Excellent soundcard for an ok price. Sounds great, and imho better than most soundcards: it certainly is far better than a Gravis or Creative labs. With some good XG files this card sounds very good. It's a bit noisy on the aux in, and some sample ram would make it perfect. It also works well with windows NT. I use it togethet with my GUS PnP, but the GUS sucks.

I baught an db50xg it didn't sound to well with my el-chepo souncard (soundblaster clone) Due to the clones output stage being totally lame..so I went back to the shop and swapped it for a SW60Xg...NICE!!! I thought to myself...my friends were blown away by the sound..then I had the chance to upgrade my soundcard and went and baught a AWE64.....Guess what..I didn't like it...lots of my games hated it...and I thought I should have gone out and baught a bog standard 16 bit soundblaster....so..I went back to the shop..they'd ran out...so I'm stuck with my &quot;iffy&quot; old audio excel...but the SW60 is lovely.,.,

only thing I wish I had was a &quot;sapmpler&quot; to use with midis...anyone out there isn cyberspace know if there is a &quot;software&quot; midi sampler...I expect it would be some kindof real time wav to midi quantizer???? But yeh the sw60 rocks....(especially if you bung it through a sony amp and some celestion speakers....BUT I do have one porblem with it that drives me crazy....When I've tried to Do irect to disk midi ad audio (using cakewalk pro 5) I get an awful high pitched whine &quot;feadback??&quot; from my monitor when playing my strum strum...(guitar) through a buffer into the &quot;line&quot; in on the sw to use it's &quot;effects&quot;...

I can only &quot;record&quot; the vocal and guitar sections with my monitor switched off!!! anythoughts??

so only 4 out of 5...because of this feedback issue...Although I expect it's my monitors fault!!

Pissy hats and flabby drums are kak for dance music, although resonant filters are x-cellent! (try bank 18 preset Dyna-Saw with res on full...) Can anyone tell me how to get the distortion / overdrive to work? XGEdit won't do it and I don't have a Logic environment 4 it. Best sounds on any PC card, and puts quite a few keyboards to shame as well.

Very Good Sond Card.Filter &amp; Reso are amazing.Quality Sounds.This Card

is the good for making Music for TV &amp; Movies but not for Dance.

Drums are very tasteless.Imitation of classic instruments is very good.

Unfortunately SW60XG almost has no good Club- and Dance sounds.

May be only Saw Lead, Acid Bass , Many Strings and Organs

One great feature is A/D Converter.You can put any sound file or loop

in your Sequencer ( I use Cakewalk 6.0) , turn A/D on and record any

of 64 effects and any changes in Sequencer's memory.For example:

You record any phrase (Music or Speech), paste to track in sequencer.

In XG Edit (this program come with SW60XG) set Variation effect to PITCH CHANGE, press Rec Button in Cakewalk ,switch back to XG Edit and begin to move slider of Pitch .Then play it back and you will hear how your sound file change the pitch.And your sequence has only one looped sound file and

SysEx recorded.This is cool.
