Yes that OpenAL is very good for emu10k1 based cards... If you are using 
ALSA CVS with your card, you don't have to worry anymore about the 
number of voices, you can leave at the default value of 32 as the driver 
in CVS has a patch applied to expose all PCM subdevices in emu10k1 based 

NOTE: EMU10K1 cards are only the Sound Blaster Live! (original) and 
variants (Platinum, Value, Gamer, MP3, 5.1 and subvariants); Audigy 1 & 
2 based cards (Audigy, Audigy Platinum, Audigy 2, Audigy 2 ZS, Audigy 2 
ZS Pro, Gamer and Platinum). Cards that are NOT supported by the ALSA 
emu10k1 driver are: SB-Live! 24-bit version (not based around the 
emu10k1 chip anymore), Audigy LS, Dell SB-Live! card (emu10k1x driver).
