That's why I didn't rush out to get an AWE64 -- the memory boards.
Not only are they a proprietary design, but you can't get them yet.
The AWE32 used cheap 30 pin SIMM's.  I now have two 16M chips.

The sound font for the Cremona emulation is now up to 7 Meg.  When I
have that, an A-roll emulation, and Warren Trachtman's piano font all
loaded, it takes up about 13 Meg total.
