I've bought a Wavetable card for my Intel Endeavour mainboard.

The problem is: I can't setup the midi right in Win95. For some reason I can't choose the Midi Sequenser, which accoriding to the manual should be selected.

So now I have a wavetable card and I can only listen to one instrument in MIDI while my wavetable card supports 128.

Plz e-mail any suggestions...

    Perhaps it's sort of a long shot, but are you using the Windows95 drivers for the soundcard.  If not, obtain them, remove the old drivers then install the Win95 drivers.  If yes, then re-install the software for the soundcard.  Usually the software sets up the midi.

There is no software included with this card. The manual says win95 (which the win95 drivers, I use also the upgraded drivers) should should have an option in CONTROL PANEL =-> MULTIMEDIA =-> MIDI. The option to be chosen is MIDI SEQUENSER (by CREATIVE), but that options isn't there...

But thx anyway for your quick reply...

When you go to Control Panel, Multimedia, Advanced, Midi Devices and Instruments, what do you see?

Hiya Nebworth,

I see:

* Midi for Creative Stereo Systhesizer
* Midi for External Midi Port

But I can only use one of these two at the time (at the MIDI section)

    Hello, Baltimore!  (The whole city?  I feel like a weatherman, or maybe a rock group)

       I'm sort of losing track of what exactly is the problem.  these specify which midi-mapper you want to use for your sound/midi instruments.  Probably, for best results with the soundcard, under the MIDI tab, you should select the Midi for Creative Stereo Synthesizer.  This just tells Win95 what instruments to play on which channels.

        Forgive me for being slightly confused...

Hiya Nebworth,

And yes, the whole city... although I've never been there (yet).
And it's okay, I'm getting confused too.

I also has been talking to other ppl with this problem...

As far as I figgered out... I probably expected TOO (read way too) much of the wavetable...

So I guess, I didn't have a problem at all, and windows did set it up right. I think the only way to hear the change (If there is any) is to much my old soundcard back... and start some midi's.

So, I think this will finish this subject. I'm really sorry that I bothered you with this 'problem'.
