It is a highly integrated card. The older Soundscape has a better guitar too actually. The 8MB patch set is hardly an improvement over the 4MB. This patch is for products bundled with Creative Disc Detector. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. They must have been limited by the hardware.

Ensoniq AudioPCI

I’d like to check this out in more detail, as perhaps Ensoniq improved the playback quality in later revisions or there is a difference because mine is integrated. The Ensoniq ES audio chip was renamed Creative and revised into AC’97 -compliant variants, the ES and ES, and used for several more years on card and as integrated motherboard audio. In addition, the DOS driver required a memory manager such as EMM to be loaded, which not only required additional conventional memory space but also put the CPU into Virtual mode, conflicting with games that utilized a modified form of protected modecalled ‘flat mode’.

The board consists only of a very small software-driven audio chip one of the following: Each was done with 2, 4 and 8MB soundfont.

And indeed it doesn’t start I also tried hooking up a Roland through the joystick port, no luck. The older Soundscape has a better guitar too actually. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. These must placed into the same directory: In 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.


Their cards were very popular with PC OEMsbut their costs were too high and their musical instrument division was fading in revenue.

This update supports the following products: 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. While Ensoniq’s approach generally worked with most games, some older games had problems detecting the virtualized hardware on audiopcj systems.

Done it’s as easy as that! I highly recommend the 8MB soundfont.

The sound still comes out though the speaker out port on the AudioPCI. Board index All times are UTC. Retrieved from ” https: I was an Ensoniq nut starting in and followed AudioPCI from the first rumors in and bought one in It is a highly integrated card.

Everything works I can hear sound. The following Wikipedia webpage has quite a lot of info about it – http: It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support.

In a nutchell, IMHO, the best bet for a sound card that does similar things and has similar features would be an old Sound Blaster Live “Value” edition In comparison to the wide variety of chips on and sheer size of the older Soundscape boards, the highly integrated two chip design of the AudioPCI is an obvious shift in design philosophy. It’s too barebones and it has PCI issues sometimes. Several patch set choices are available, varying in size and instrument quality 2, 4, or 8 MB.

Midi only works well however. This card doesn’t have a Yamaha OPL chip. I’m actually quite attached to the MIDI sound of it Space Quest 4 and 5 sound really good!
