In the transition from ISA to PCI, and particularly with the introduction of AC’97 , audio chipset manufacturers took the opportunity to drop multi-clocking from their products. I did not try to guess the resources used when PnP is disabled.

It sounds better than my old SB16 CT and one of the big benefits which I just realized is that PC doos sound is now directed to the speakers Only downside is that the wavetable connector have been fs1688 on the motherboard but it looks like you can solder it on though EDIT: All the cards except for the ES card used the same Dos drivers but the ES had its own same set of files but were probably different in some way.
I have yet to test it, however.
A kernel bug vos broke PnP assignment of DMA channels whenever a card’s first choice was unavailable persisted for 5 years. Wav music sounds good.
A second DMA channel is used only for full-duplex operation. SYS in an es6188 to install the unnecessary device driver. I don’t know what changed, but UIDE is now incompatible with sound cards more often than not.
ESS ES1688 Audio Drive ISA Sound Card
Easy to use and Compatible for sure. Although it’s not marked as such on the board, evidently this is a Pro: I only attempted W98SE on the non-working configuration, so I did not complete a successful test.
Could also be that ESS chipsets do not allow reading the values. I’ll have a look at mine at home and test it when I get around. In aplaymidi, the output is sometimes similar to that from DOOM; other times it is blatantly broken and completely messed up.
Then you have to send the music to device 1 instead of device 0. In alsamixer, there is a mysterious 3-leveled control labelled Playback that seems to work like a gain multiplier making volume much louder.
Added the TEA T “sound fader control circuit” which provides volume, balance, bass and treble controls.
The necessary drivers are now ros. Both documents are included in the PDF file here. The synth channels are reversed just as they are in DOS.

It’s also very quiet, requiring extreme mixer settings for balance. Cleaning those cruddy contacts didn’t help. DN3D music is still glitched.
I don’t know if this is the correct name.

The wavetable is muted by default, and it’s labelled ‘Aux1’ or something like that. Return to General Old Hardware. I have tested examples of the latter two. DOS setup for this card is infamous if not epic and deserves its own page. As you can find in the ISA soundcard overview in my signature. The MPU was recognised no problem, I just never got any sound. There is no driver for AD EXE, that only runs under Windows. YouTubeFacebookWebsite.
If that’s the case, the game could read the original volume settings during start up and restore them during exit. Old Aztech cards like this one can be unambiguously identified by comparing the FCC-ID printed on the board against the list at ftp: It differs from the collection included in Version 4. On the good side, the FM synth is as loud as voice and isn’t obviously glitchy.
