Well, you can laugh at me, but if my proyect goes fine, it could be 
very easy to use the soundcard without a computer.
Imagine, the soundcard can have an independent power supply (not PS/2 
nor anything, but a proper and genuine power supply). 
So, what you need to make your wishes come true?????
Well, as simply as to plug some headphones, amplified monitors or 
amplifier to the line - out, and you got it.
You'll only need a midi-controller to play the internal soundcard 
synth. Just think about the possibilites.

You said sidstation? That thingy from scandinavia who works with a 
VERY old  8bit  stuff,  far worse than an Atari??????? <g>

Have fun.
