I have a 512K gus with a different video card and scsi drives but otherwise
match your configuration.  I rebuilt current last night and could play
au files.  If I initialized the card with DOS, the volume was even loud.
I tried the ultrasnd whatnow3.mod and it sounded great but there where
"computer pops and cracks" interspersed with the music.  Volume control

Tried playmidi but got a sequencer error.  Must not be built right for that.

On the whole, the driver works must better for me than ever but not perfect.

The new xanim with sound even worked on the build prior, but I haven't
tried it on this build.

There is hope for the future.
