After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Installation of the card couldn't be easier, just yank out the Sound Blaster Live! and toss it aside. Then install the Fortissimo II in its place. All of the drivers and software come on a single CD along with DirectX8a and Adobe Acrobat.
    There is a great software package that comes on the CD it includes:

    Gamesurround Fortissimo II control panel
    Game Commander 2 Special Edition
    Acid XpressTM
    MusicMatchTM Jukebox
    Siren Jukebox XpressTM
    Media Station
    Yamaha XG PlayerTM
    Kool karaokeTM Lite
    Power DVD 3.0 (4 channels)

    Details on these programs are available again on Hercules's website.
