PCI audio card which takes a daughterboard?

Here's the dilemma.

My Yamaha DB50XG Wavetable Daughterboard has given me great midi sounds for maybe six or seven years. It is fitted to a Turtle Beach Fiji sound card. Trouble is, the Fiji has an ISA connector. Modern motherboards have no ISA connectors.

Is there a present-day PCI audio card with a daughterboard fitting?

Or a present-day m/b with an ISA socket?

Or a PCI to ISA flying lead adaptor?

I use a Videologic Sonic Fury PCI sound card which has a connector for the DB50XG - it was one of the reasons I bought it. It is actually a re-badged Turtle Beach card although I can't remember the name. The card is a few years old now - but the current model VideoLogic SonicXPlosion DVD (also a Turle Beach card I believe) also has a wavetable connector. There's a review here http://www.pcpro.co.uk in the reviews/labs section.

Hope this may be of some help. I wouldn't want to be without my XG daughterboard either!

Thanks for the tip. Videologic don't have a very high profile when it comes to sound cards but this is just what I'm looking for.

String sounds are particularly effective from the DB50XG - I've got a midi file of Vivaldi's Spring that has been used in a wide variety of 'No PRS/MCPS' situations and no-one has ever twigged that it is a synth sweeted with a little reverb!
