I’ve only used the , and myself, and I can’t say I’ve had any serious issues with any of them. The DOS software — which can be found on Vogon Drivers — is bare bones but is easy to use and powerful. It gives you a message about this and that you need to use ICU software. This site hosts no abandonware. So I’ll do it to satisfy my own curiosity and other people can re-discover it later.

Not if you run the CF card in 8-bit mode you can’t do that with most IDE hard drives, but it’s been my experience that all CF cards support the mode.

I was about to give up and put the SB16 back in when I noticed this humble looking card, pulled from a junked Socket 7 machine at some time in the past and kept because it had a wavetable header: I forget which one it was. Was a great card back in the day, excellent value and the compatibility fos amazing.

It’s very quiet, the drivers are small and easy to use, especially if you like command line tools. I was browsing through the Textfiles when I came across this Multi-Media CD that seemed to have some strange audio card text and drivers.

Dual Xeon X 4. Where can I find the differences between different ESS chips? I do able to turn the game port and CD-ROM connector off easily and configure the wavetable header to port Which is quite annoying. I’m with Anonymous Coward, for me it is a really interesting idea for saving a slot in a The default drivers loaded fss1868 windows are all that’s needed to run the card in windows.


It seems to give popping noises on anything other than a Sound Blaster. What is interesting is that this is a PnP card, but on a ess18668 PnP machine you can just give the executable some commands to setup everything.

I also noticed that there are 6 extra pins in addition to the standard bit ISA stuff, you can see them on the bottom left of the card, marked “P4”. Or does yours have an illegal OPL3 copy on it?

Paint Shop Pro 3. Plutothe maxed out Dell Dimension The useful item in the datasheet is that the reference circuit pretty closely matches including the IDE port the FX board.

There is no material that is knowingly illegal here.

The drivers from vogons are only needed for DOS operation. SYS driver worked best for me. But the idea seems to have gathered little traction. It is not about the bit slot.

MF ESF that has a very bare PCB and makes me think a lot of things got integrated into the chip at some point And I don’t know if the whole streamlining of the card through time is better or for worse. It won’t require any additional hardware, and I can save a slot in my Sometimes, you just come across the weirdest stuff in the oddest places.


This is because 3D technology is now often used in the recording and game industry, and as such there is a danger of “over-processing” which can result in poor spatial image and loss of tone. I just download it today. I do believe it’s not as compatible as the YMF, though.

The DB header is also quite unusual, one of the 5V pins and the midi-out pin is used as digital audio input, which can be used only by certain ESS DBs.

The DOS mixer software turned me off those cards however, and some minor incompatibilities with older games. My retro rigs old topic Interesting Vogons threads links to Vogonswiki Report spammers here!

Unless, that is, I want to suss out the configuration utility I don’t. Surprisingly mine is PnP. I’d like to hear if anyone has had any luck with this sort of setup before I go and waste my time trying to get it to work. Board index All times are UTC.
