Sound Card Specifications
When determining the quality of the sound card, you will often times see the name of the card appended with an 8-bit friendly number (such as SoundBlaster AWE128 or SoundBlaster 16).
This number does not reflect the sound cards sample resolution, but instead the number of simultaneous voices that can be played.
For example, if your MIDI sound file used a piano, clarinet, bass, and a set of drums, you would need 4 voices.
It goes without saying that the more voices a sound card can support, the richer the sound that it can produce.
