I have a hercules Fortissimo III soundcard and love it.., tried vista out and found it wouldn't work and cause Hercules have disappeared there was no possibility of a driver update for vista. Now as my old pc has finally given up and gone to pc heaven, I have just bought a quad core 2 pc.., which well, I will need to put Vista on it. I could buy a Creative X-fi card but to get the seperate headphone port i want (that the hercules card has.., and it does crystal whatchamacallit sound etc, sound quality is unbelievable) I will have to pay silly money, and pay money out for music editing bits I just don't need. I have looked for something/anything that will enable me to use this soundcard on a Vista system but no luck. Does anyone have any ideas? I'd be very grateful. It just seems ridiculous to have to pay over the odds for a soundcard that does so much stuff I don't need. The Hercules card gives brilliant quality sound as I said, it just won't work on Vista.
