Ooops! You're right. I found an old article on  sound cards and the
reviewer mentioned that the card doesn't really have a synth; it was
wholly a function of the Windows drivers. Eeeew!

This card is actually a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz. Here is a snippet direct
from Turtle Beach's web site:

 - MIDI Wavetable Synthesis:
 - 8MB DLS synthesizer with scalable DSP/Host load sharing.
 - Up to 64-voice hardware polyphony with more than 1,000 software voices
 - (limited by host CPU.) MIDI controls reverb, chorus, volume, envelope,
 - pitch shift, tremolo and vibrato.

None of that means anything in particular to me, but it certainly sounds
like it's got a synthesizer built-in.

Thanks again,
