Digidesign SoundAccelerator Soundtools nubus

hi,

has anyone retained drivers for these cards?  1.4.1 is still available on digidesign archived site.
I had trouble getting this card to work on a Nubus 90 system and so i'm going to get a IICI with which to try it.

I believe there is a 'rev 2' card that may work on Nubus 90 with changed PALs.

hi,
[solved]
These cards do not work on my 840AV because that machine cannot be toggled back to 24-bit addressing, which is required for these older Nubus cards.  840AV because of its interleaved memory is always at 32-bit.

You also have to be on System 7.5 toggle between 32/24 bit memory modes.

Hope this proves useful to someone or me in the future!

I don't have an 840AV, but this is good info to know in case I should be so lucky. So thanks.
