It’s too barebones and it has PCI issues sometimes. Note that this driver will give you SB16 and General Midi compatibility, but Soundscape support doesn’t work! Space Quest 4 and 5 sound really good! This card doesn’t have a Yamaha OPL chip. 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 I was an Ensoniq nut starting in and followed AudioPCI from the first rumors in and bought one in

The product you have selected has been classified as ‘End of Service Life’. Download this patch only if the Autorun or Autoplay feature is disabled; there 520 no need to download it otherwise.
It was Ensoniq’s last sound card product before they were acquired by Creative Technology. This site hosts no abandonware.
I have so many folders it’s getting hard to ensoniiq in DOS. Last edited by ux-3 on Space Quest 4 and 5 sound really good! Everything works I can hear sound. The board consists only of a very small software-driven audio chip one of the following: It is SBPro-capable for digital sound but has no bit choice.
If for some reason, you need to reinstall Disc Detector, run this patch again. You are required to download the following packages.
The jack switches modes if 4-speaker output became active. End of Service Life. CFG file but 520 see an option to use the external midi port. Also, this card has an interesting history.

BTW, that Wikipedia article was mostly written by ensnoiq. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. This card doesn’t have a Yamaha OPL chip. So with these games just select Soundscape.
You can download them here: But there should also be DOS games that work with the Voodoo 2 right? Makes it sound very dry, like the regular Soundscape card. In SQ4 I updated the Sound Blaster driver patch for faster cpu but after a while the speech will just loop.

Several patch set choices are available, varying in size and instrument quality 2, 4, or 8 MB.
Therefore, it was practical to configure DOS games to utilize the General MIDI synthesizer and digital sound effects, whenever possible, for better sound quality.
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.
