The nomenclature from Creative was messy enough that it is often difficult to tell which drivers are applicable much less optimal for a given card. I’m a little vague on how this can possibly avoid resampling when there’s no matching clock source that I can find, but it sounds good enough to be plausible. In a nutchell, IMHO, the best bet for a sound card that does similar things and has similar features would be an old Sound Blaster Live “Value” edition Last edited by ux-3 on DOOM runs with channel-flipped sound effects for a minute or two and then locks up. BTW, that Wikipedia article was mostly written by me.

It sounds quite good considering how cheap these cards are!

Any hints on how to get this working? I did two recordings. They will appear to function the same way as cards that directly support the AudioWave Platinum 16 Driver.

CT is the same as ES The sound effects glitching wasn’t as bad and the OPL3 emulation seemed better as well. DOS Sound Blaster compatibility: Very few of the many SB Live! Views Read Edit View history.


Return to General Old Hardware. There is, however, a proliferation of subdevices appearing through ALSA to support hardware mixing.

DOOM runs with channel-flipped sound effects for a minute or two and e1370 locks up. I’m not actually going to do that. Sound Blaster 16 Drivers. The card’s internal resampling from LIB A2D Support Files v3.

The chip was capable of spatializing all audio automatically, but still required DirectSound3D usage for specific ew1370 of sounds. Whereas the Soundscape line had been made up primarily of low-volume high-end products full of features, the AudioPCI was designed to be a very simple, low-cost product to appeal to system OEMs and thus hopefully sell in mass quantities.

A neat thing about it is that the Aureal cards have a wavetable header and it does work in DOS. The installer in Dos In another cost-cutting move, es13700 previously typical ROM chip used for storage of samples for sample-based synthesis was replaced with the facility to use system RAM as storage for this audio data.

Therefore, it was practical to configure DOS games to utilize the General MIDI synthesizer and digital sound effects, whenever possible, for better sound quality.


It’s a big ZIP file with all the recordings: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I have now tested this card on three different chipsets.

Although the autorun setup supports only the indicated later versions of Windows, manually installable Windows 98 drivers were “hidden” in subdirectory Drivers. To do this on Slackware The Ensoniq ES audio chip was renamed Creative and revised into AC’97 -compliant variants, the ES and ES, and used for several more years on card and as integrated motherboard audio. Through this thread I located a pre-acquisition Ensoniq driver distro: Users browsing this forum: Instead, I used version 4.
