WindSurfer is a 16-bit DMA bus master adapter which occupies a 16 or 32-bit Micro Channel bus slot 16 MHz or faster system, with a 386SX or greater processor. 

WindSurfer and Audiovation Adapters Together
    They cannot be active at the same time with current software . Concurrent operation is planned for a future release of the software. (Ed. I don't know if AV212 solves this)

Microphone needed for full-duplex speakerphone feature
   Any standard unidirectional electret mic will do. If you have a dynamic microphone, you may have to turn off your monitor while using the speakerphone, due to interference.

CD-ROMs supported
   IBM Internal ISA CD-ROM (P/N 70G8501) or Panasonic CR-562/563 drive, the other is the Sony CDU-31A. These same drives with OEM labels, and other Panasonic and Sony drives that use the same ISA interfaces (not SCSI) should work also, but have not been tested. (Ed. Report what CDs you have used)

Recording .WAV files while simultaneously playing MIDI files
   Yes, assuming both your PC and music software can handle it. 

Audio along with modem
   All audio features (except synthesis) can run concurrently with the modem, even at 14.4Kbps. 

WindSurfer MIDI Pac
     MIDI breakout cable, an expanded set of Prosonus sampled sounds, Band-in-a-Box and PowerTracks music applications. 

Developer's toolkit 
   Available for the WindSurfer/Audiovation adapters Contact Intermetrics at 617-661-1840 for DOS/Windows and OS/2 toolkits.
