This is for all freax who still want to use OctamedSoundStudio or other Appz which directly access the Maestro Soundcard but havent this card anymore or switch to WiNUAE or AMiGAONE. Damien Stewart did a small program which does the following:
Based on Richard Korber's work, The Maestrix emulates the functionality
of his Maestix MaestroPro API library, but instead works through AHI. Now any tools you have which can play using the maestix.library can now be directed through AHI. As an example of the possibilites, SoundStudio can use this library, so now you can use SoundStudio to play multi-track 16-bit modules through AHI!
Yes, now all you AmigaOS4 users can play with SoundStudio once again, and catch up from where you left off without the need to wait for an OS4 native version. It also works with standard 4 tracker modules as well, so you don't have to worry about not having CIA timers, Paula hardware, or how SoundStudio doesn't directly support AHI. Now it can!
Because my RBM Zorro2 burned in 2004 i now have a system with Mediator SX and PCI. I had to sell all my ZorroCards and bought PCI-Cards instead. I was a OSS User for years but it does not support AHI so i switched to DigiboosterPRO... With "The Maestrix" i now can use OSS through AHI+Soundblaster128 in full quality. Give it a try!

Important: increase Mixing Buffer to at least 3000 and tweak up the Taskpriority for "The Maestrix"
