Hi. What you need is Industrial Mainboard. There is a good choice from various manufacturers. All are based on modern chipsets using onboard pci-e to pci bridge. Some models feature gen7+ Intel CPU support and even 6 x 33MHz PCI slots + few PCI-e slots. Some models feature even ISA slots together with PCI and PCI-e.

Take a look at MSI IPC:

Also remember the last PT version that supports MIX cards was 6.4.1 which requires OSX Panther or Windows XP -- be sure your hardware is supported on those ancient OS, otherwise you are out of luck even if you got leds blinking.

I just came back to warn about potential legacy OS and new mainboard compatibility issue and see that you had already explained :-) Intel Gen 10 and newer most likely have isuse for Windows 7 compatibility let alone with Windows XP...

Cheers!

Yes, only way to use these is in a Mac G4 or older, or with an older windows machine. OS, plug-in, and 3rd party software compatibility is very finicky, as these systems are almost 25 year old tech. Iirc support was dropped in 2004.

How is your Satchmo card still working?

Still going. Just used it to run a track through sound blender from my modern pro tools rig

I used to have a 6.4.1 license which was a code, lost it and no way of retrieving it since the Digidesign Store no longer exists. I had a 5.3.1 and a 6.x LE license too and just found my old Audiomedia III card a few months back when cleaning a storage.
