Creative is the same chip. The sound initially seemed messed up, but it was only because spatial and reverb effects had been enabled by default.

PCI audio notes

Towards the end of the s, Ensoniq was struggling financially. 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 creatice quantities.

Each version has its own quirks. For the emulated OPL3, it has to be lower yet. Creatige another cost-cutting move, the 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.


Things that didn’t help: This page was last edited on creatice Octoberat For few soundcards feature multiple quartzes or a PLL, resampling is often used with all its potential problems. Then I got a Live! World’s most popular driver download site.

Moving the card to a different PCI slot as the error message suggests doesn’t actually help.

This card doesn’t have a Yamaha OPL chip. Ensoniq tried something new with the AudioPCI which was going after the value market! Now because Ensoniq was purchased by Creative, there are two drivers floating around! I also have 2 Voodoo cards I quickly want to test. Mobile, Crrative OS and Linux users can choose other download options by deselecting the installer checkbox below the download button.

It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support. DLL But after a reboot it was there creatife working with no obvious problems.

EV is a later variant with AC97 es11373 in. BAT with a long list of cryptic, undocumented switches. It’s definitely noticable in the percussion where I don’t feel they have as much definition. I was an Ensoniq nut starting in and followed AudioPCI from the first rumors in and bought one in I notice however you guys are talking about it topping off at 22Khz which is strange to me because it certainly seems like my AudioPCI was clearer and probably at a full 44Khz it sounds closer to the linked Soundscape Elite recordings thread.

Everything works I can hear sound. ALSA’s default configuration is problematic. I have been unable to locate DOS drivers that work with this mobo.

To my dismay, the MIDI music sounded horrible. INF before installing the drivers. Sound got hosed at one point but came back after a reboot. Like snd-ymfpci, this module does not enable the joystick unless asked.

The failures were multi-layered: Webarchive template wayback links. General Midi however works fine.
