You can download them here: Doubles as a MIDI port. You will also find some recordings examples It doesn’t have a clone chip either. I’ve had real Roland synths from eBay for over 5 years now that work fine with DOSBox, so I haven’t had to mess with any of that stuff for a long time. I think it might be installed even with some cards that have MIDI hardware.

This disclaimer is brought to you thanks ebsoniq the BSA. It’s definitely noticable in the percussion where I don’t feel they have as much definition.

Not the output jack plug sockets themselves. About This site Joining Editing help Recent changes. I found this out a year ago or so. Also, this card has an interesting history. I should install W95 it seems. It is the only member of the family that can play without resampling and this is both a plus and a caveat depending on what you want to play. The steps above use the Playback 2 channel to play PCM audio. So you perhaps can turn on capture from microphone and cd-audio at once, so your karaoke masterpiece is preserved in one wav file.

Allows a single microphone and stereo speaker set to be used for both voice modem and sound card audio applications message recording and playback, speakerphone, etc. So with these games just select Soundscape. I also have 2 Voodoo cards I quickly want to test. The chip was capable of spatializing all audio automatically, but still required DirectSound3D usage for specific localization of sounds.


These registers are used by the ES and later models.

Their cards were very popular with PC OEMsbut their costs were too high and their musical instrument division was fading in revenue. Therefore, it was practical to configure DOS games to utilize the General MIDI synthesizer and digital sound effects, whenever possible, for better sound quality. Note that this driver will give you SB16 and General Midi compatibility, but Soundscape support doesn’t work!

The 4-speaker mode is only activated by software supporting the DirectSound3D enzoniq mode. By setting the Frame Count register to play half of audjo audio buffer, you will receive an interrupt when the first half of the buffer has been played.

CPUs were way too slow. It was particularly unfortunate because the AudioPCI used system RAM for patch set storage which in itself offers tremendous potential for new patch sets over the traditional ROM storage previously used. I’ve had real Roland synths from eBay for over 5 years now that work fine with DOSBox, so I haven’t had to mess with any of that stuff for a long time.

Pressure from intense competition, especially with the dominant Creative Labswas forcing audio card makers to try to keep their prices low.

It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support. The PCI Subclass and Revision registers can be used to detect exactly which model is installed, and each model has similar but not identical register sets. Ensoniq tried something new with the AudioPCI which was going after the value market!


The 8MB patch set is hardly an improvement over the enxoniq.

It is also disappointing considering the incredible popularity and longevity of the Ensoniq ES chipset and its descendants, some of which were still in use six years after the original AudioPCI board, and the fact that DOS drivers for the far newer Sound Blaster Audigy still use ausio.

Not sure about DOS V2 demos The main difference between the EV and previous chips was the inclusion of a built-in AC’97 codec hence producing a cheaper, single chip audio solution. This all sounds like sneaky driver tricks to fake it using a very, very limited set of real effects. There is an on-board sample-rate-converter which can translate lower-rate sources to the proper output value.

It doesn’t have a clone chip either. The Playback 1 channel should work in a similar fashion.

Maybe I’ll record it, special for you. Regarding the Creative softsynth, the device name for it is “Creative Soundfont Synth”.
