All in all, the patent and the source code are interesting reading. They must have been limited by the hardware. 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. I disabled all unused Serial and Parrallel ports. The chip was also a PCI bus master device that was designed to provide high-speed access to system RAM and resources, for sample synthesis data and effect processing. This mode allowed fast, direct access to the system’s entire RAM without requiring a memory manager or memory protection mechanism. But the bigger patch sets change the guitar out and it sounds much better.

The AdLib emulation was not so much emulation as approximation, as it tried to replace a FM synth with wavetable synthesis, with mixed results. I don’t really know what to suggest. Apparently the chip lacks sample rate conversion. The guy apparently wasn’t capable of using web search.

What about sound quality, drivers and the manual for the Ensoniq Opus? Browse Locate the folder where you extracted the driver earlier.


Again there is no effects processor but the samples have pre-computed effects. The jack switches modes if 4-speaker output became active.

AWE64’s use of proprietary memory addons really tops it all off too. Creative Labs Malvern which was the former Ensoniq company that had been acquired later released the Ectiva EV Web Site” by Ensoniq Corp.

I found this out a year ago or so. The patch set is revised and has notably stronger percussion samples. Sign in Already have an account? Pressure from intense sundscapevivo, especially with the dominant Creative Labswas forcing audio card makers to try to keep their prices low.

If it does double click on it to see what the problem is. Aureal has a very usable DOS driver too.

Also, this card has an interesting history. Everything works I can hear sound. This card doesn’t have a Yamaha OPL chip. It was an absolute steal compared to AWE32 and most other cards of the time. Posted December 20, sounrscapevivo.

However, without actual hardware for FM synthesisFM music and sound effects were simulated using samples, often with unacceptable results. Click here to find out why. For this reason, developers that messed with the RTC had to write some value to bit 7.


To get around this with older ISA cards we need to manually set their IRQ settings in the bios to prevent them from being shared with other hardware.

Things got way more interesting with the PCI devices. I’m not sure whether I’ve heard the later 2meg set. This soundscapebivo an OEM-only cost-reduced product with similar specifications to the S And how did you come across this post so quickly?

soundscaepvivo Towards the end of the s, Ensoniq was struggling financially. June 24, at 5: It’s a big ZIP file with all the recordings: It is apparent that Ensoniq put the bulk of the code into extended memory in order to minimize conventional memory usage, which is itself at least somewhat interesting, if not unique or novel.
