I have been toroughly stressed by creative labs..

Not only do they make bad vista drivers (espescially the ASIO part. Their support for Linux is virtually non-=existant.

Only 1 beta driver available from creative, and i did not get it to work in any of the 5 linux distro's i tried...

I finally got my sound card working under 64 studio distro, but with the free OSS drivers. And those don't support the newer Linux interfaces like JACK and such.

I am back to windows for now, and i am going to install Linux (which works great except X-fi stuff) in a virtuall machine that has an AC97 audio interface.

For now i am back to WInddows vista 64 Ultimate. I bought an Edirol PCR 800 yesterday and i hooked it up to my PC. Its a great midi tool for playing with vst's...

I,'ll be testing live-styler later this week, or otherwise next week, as my job is currently taking 15 hours a day. I tought i keep you guys updated.

Creative soundcards are not pro cards, but designed for the consumer market and for this they are excellent value for money, offering everything the consumer needs, however if you are a pro (Or you require a card for pro use) you will require a soundcard dedicated to just music, (Creative is Jack of all trades, but a master of none) which means getting your wallet out Im afraid.
Hope this helps

There ain't any yet.
At least a couple of month's ago I couldn't find them.
There are some pro cards with drivers, but 32 bits version only and way slower as under XP.

I'am back on XP pro.
