Windows 7: Midi-capable sound card with Win 7?

Midi-capable sound card with Win 7?

I have a digital audio workstation and I use midi devices with my system. Besides, it's a good way to link sound devices across systems into a single coordinated work station. Problem I'm finding though is that almost all new sound cards I've looked at no longer seem to support midi. And then there's the whole question as to whether or not they'd even work with Win 7.

I have a Creative Sound Blaster Live! with Live Drive that's several years old, that I wish I could get to work with Win 7, but I've had zero luck so far.

My main requirement in a sound card, besides being midi capable, is that it is quiet. No detectable line noise, that is. 24/96 capable is a big plus. Oh, it also must be PCI, not PCI express.

Got any suggestions?

Best,
Michael
