Excellent, excellent, excellent, EXCELLENT!!!
I've just upgraded from XP Pro 32 bit to 7 Pro 64 bit and spent the last 7 days installing all my software. I left my hardware until last, and last night it was time to install the XV5050 driver. Lo and behold, it didn't work, so I did a Google search which directed me to this forum topic by Mr Wilson. He very kindly sent me his creation which took seconds to install. The unit works fine now. I have the orchestral library installed, and even though I use plugins such as EastWest's Platinum Plus Symphony Orchestra, Garritan and other samples, I also use the XV5050 a lot as it has some really lovely patches (Adagio Strings for instance) on it that work well with a volume slider from my master keyboard. If anybody has seen the 2 part docu/drama on the Discovery Channel called "The Real Family of Jesus", just about all the orchestral strings in that score are from my XV5050. It might be old technology now, but it still has a place in my sonic arsenal.
10/10 Alan! Thanks for your help.
Peace and respect
