Classic Sound Cards? (Re: Roland SCC 1 GS MIDI Card)

I've have a couple soundblaster Pro's (CT1350Bs I think), Several
variations of SoundBlaster 16, the soundblaster wavetable add-on board
for the 16, a Gravis Ultrasound PnP, a couple MS Windows Sound System
cards, and a "Game Blaster" card.

Most my SB16s are in PCs since they work well enough for modern stuff
and work with "classic" PC games that want a Sound Blaster or AdLib

I would like to have an AdLib card, but have not run into any.
