I do not see it on the list of recommended cards...
Hi. You can probably get it working with 2 channels only, using the Direct-x drivers, but if you are using Asio in other applications like Cubase, GS will screw it up completely, because GS takes over its audio channels when you boot up the computer (not when you load GS), so you\'ll probably find it interfering with Asio even when GS is not loaded. To work with GS installed on your computer, the driver has to be multi-client even when you think you are only using one application, unless that application is GS.
MME drivers in applications like Wavelab should work OK when not using GS. Best to get one of the cards on the list. Consider it as part of the basic hardware needed to run GS.
I went exactly the same way couple of months ago. I did not manage the GSt to output into the DSPF. After trying everything possible I bought SBL Live. True, I had to reinstall the computer from the scratch, but now it works exactly the way you describe. I use the SBL to listen to the GSt while sequencing, than I bounce the instruments to disc, and mix it afterwadrs using DSPF. Only I use Cubase and not Cakewalk.
The only trouble I have is that sometimes I get timing problems when playing more tracks at once. Don\'t know why. Restarting the computer usually helps.

Great, I\'m glad to hear that. I guess I\'ll go that route too.
Is there any word whether the Yamaha / GS incompatibility will be fixed? Is this a matter of Yamaha simply providing the proper drivers or is there some larger hardware-level incompatibility which ensures the two will never work together?
Well, if you read the ReadMe file accompanying a DS2416 DirectX driver, Yamaha insists it works with GigaS. In one of the earliers Topics someone explained to me how to make it work but it did not work for me. Anyway the latency of the DSPF is quite high (in Cubase when using ASIO driver, it is around 80ms) which makes this card unusable for live playing.
And as regards GSIF driver, someone, on the same thread rightly pointed out that Yamaha, itself in the hardware sampler business, can\'t have any interest in making their card to work well with some much cheaper software sampler software.
