The M-ACPA/A is not really a sound card in the traditional sense. It was
not designed to do real time playback. It was designed more as a card for
annotating multimedia presentations with audio. It will work with DOS and
Windows, and 95/98 with some finagling. It will NOT, however be
compatible with most games. Also, it probably will not do 44.1K/16.
