    Here's my setup
    1) DELL Pentium 2+ GHz
    2) M-Delta Audiophile 2496 Card
    3) Cubase LE & Pro Tools M-Powered
    4) E-Mu X-Board 61
    5) Proteus X Synth software
    I plug the E-Mu Keyboard into the PC via - USB cable and use the Proteus to create synth sounds

    Here's my problem
    I want to be able to play my E-Mu Keyboard through the Proteus-X synth on my PC and record what I play into either Cubase LE or M-Powered Pro Tools. HOWEVER both the Proteus software and the recording software uses the same M-Delta Audiophile card. I haven't been able to get both software programs to share the Audio card.

    Is there a way that a DAW software and a synth software can share the same audio card?

    Maybe I am misunderstanding your question, but could you not use the Proteus X Synth software as a vst plugin in Cubase?

    Do you have E-MU Protues X LE or the full version of Proteus X? The LE version can only be used as a VSTi and the full version can be used as a VSTi or as a stand alone application. If you use as a VSTi, then you would record using a sequencer/audio program such as Cubase or Sonar. When the full version is used as a stand alone sound module, then you would record it's output to another computer or something else just like you would if you were recording an outboard MIDI module. Consult your documentation located in the subfolders of Start - All Programs - Creative Professional.
