An enjoyable article. Indeed the Irlam i16 is a fine card, probably the best sampler for the RiscPC, although my own one does not support SP/DIF (digital) recording, alas. There is also a combined Audio / MIDI podule called DMI50. Supposedly it has the best analog recording quality, although I cannot be sure of that. Still, like the i16, it will not be easy to get hold of one, but it has the added benefit of having 2 MIDI ports built in.
