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. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. You can download them here: I did two recordings. The older Soundscape has a better guitar too actually. As you can see on the image, there aren’t many components on this card at all

Therefore, it was practical to configure DOS games to utilize the General MIDI synthesizer and digital sound effects, whenever possible, for better sound quality.

Creative Labs Malvern which was the former Ensoniq company that had been acquired later es137 the Ectiva EV AudioPCI had some surprises for the market. Each was done with 2, 4 and 8MB soundfont. 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.

An oddity is that the rear channel was connected to the same output jack as line input. It’ll take a bit though since I need to reinstall Windows on that thing. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA.

It was Ensoniq’s last sound card product before es171 were acquired by Creative Technology. Retrieved from ” https: My website with reviews, demos, drivers, tutorials and more Way better before the 8MB patch set showed up. Their cards were very popular with PC OEMsbut their costs were too high and their musical instrument division was fading in revenue. They must have ewonic limited by the hardware. The 11 KHz cutoff is easily seen on a graphic equalizer Winamp Ozone plugin here.


Elite has some reverb and chorus enabled by default and you can tweak it with sysex commands. While Ensoniq’s approach generally worked with most games, some older games had problems detecting the virtualized hardware on some systems.

I notice however you guys are talking about it topping off at 22Khz which is strange to me because it certainly seems like my AudioPCI was clearer and probably at a full 44Khz it sounds closer to the linked Soundscape Elite recordings thread.

I found this out a year ago or so. 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.

Back to Square One. However, without actual hardware for FM synthesisFM music and sound effects were simulated using samples, often with unacceptable results. Everything works I can hear sound. Also, this card has an interesting history.

Last Drivers  ALC100 AUDIO DRIVER

The chip was capable of spatializing all audio automatically, but still required DirectSound3D usage for specific localization of sounds. It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support. The driver is used all the way up to Audigy 2, I think. One important feature of this chip was that it used the PCI bus, instead of the ISA bus commonly used by sound cards at that point.

The 4-speaker mode is only activated by software supporting the DirectSound3D quadraphonic mode. Then I got a Live!

Done it’s as easy as that! Web Site” by Ensoniq Corp. When paired with a capable codecsuch as the AK pre-AC’97the ES supported the then-latest in 3D audio positioning through 4-speaker surround sound. I think it’s designed for This page was last edited on 8 Octoberat Aureal has a very usable DOS driver too. This was a e1371 cost saving measure!
