18869 Dual Xeon X 4. There was a certain ESS card I tried and didn’t like because it could only play a couple of sounds at a time, or would play the first half of a sound and cut off the rest.
This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA.
I tried 3 of these things, a YMF,and This card is SB Pro compatible and sounds fantastic, very clean and crisp. And as others have noted here there is a nasty pop when starting the PC, but these are minor complaints in my opinion. I have an integrated ES soundcard in my Compaq. Setup was easy enough and es Sound Blaster Pro compatibility seemed to be good, but it sounded like my speakers had been immersed in water. 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.
It insists on enabling WSS which is obviously not gonna work on 8-bit.

But try playing a shooter and shooting a few things, causing explosions etc and see if this card has that issue. Perhaps this is Windows only option via the generic WSS 2. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. Each behaved slightly differently with regard to WSS resources and I only managed to get the YMF to behave consistently, but not without a struggle, and even then the mixer settings were so far out of whack that – as always – I yanked the card out and swore to never touch one again.

Does it work in an 8-bit slot? It seems to give popping noises on anything other than a Sound Blaster.
Voodoo2s aren’t mhz stock Geforce isn’t released as a beta on New Years ’99 under the Quadro brand Sss gaming isn’t a bilinear x Also the wavetable header could not be configured to a useable port number this is done via jumpersthe lowest available was port !

I dug through my box of sound cards looking for a replacement and tried an: I wants my Duke3D. This card does several things right. I bought it new for a Pentium if I remember correctly.
I do believe it’s not as compatible as the YMF, though. The DOS mixer software turned me off those cards however, and some minor incompatibilities with older games.
It’s an international shipment so I’m still waiting: EXE is likewise easy to use, and allowed me to set the MIDI and CD volumes both muted by defaultand the volume levels were perfect first time which is a rare thing in my experience.
Then again Wolf3D does this even on a SB.
I believe it has more channels than the real thing, which the Windows MIDI driver can use for full 4-op sound. I forget which one it was. I haven’t had a chance to try any of the ISA AudioDrives but I’m looking forward to giving this 18669 a spin once it arrives.

Also the game had some minor SFX issues on that particular codec.
