Dual Xeon X 4. This card is SB Pro compatible and sounds fantastic, very clean and crisp. I tried 3 of these things, a YMF, , and Google [Bot] , m and 8 guests. 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.

ESS Technology

Dual Xeon X 4. I was able to turn the game port and CD-ROM connector off easily and configure the wavetable header to port Voodoo2s aren’t mhz stock Geforce isn’t released as a beta on New Years ’99 under the Quadro brand DOS gaming isn’t a bilinear x I aueio believe it’s not as compatible as the YMF, though.

The ES datasheet http: Google [Bot]m and 8 guests. It seems to give popping noises on anything other than a Sound Blaster. But try playing a shooter and shooting a few things, causing explosions etc and see if this card has that issue.

Does it work in an 8-bit slot? At some point, the company moved from Berkeley to Fremont, California.

Retrieved from ” https: Two popular sound bites from the Commodore 64 were “He slimed me!! From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. 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.


I believe it has more channels than the real thing, which the Windows MIDI driver can use for full 4-op sound. 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. These synthesizers were often reasonably faithful to the Yamaha OPL3 chip, which was an important feature for the time as some competing solutions, including Creative’s own CQM synthesis featured in later ISA Sound Blaster compatibles, offered sub-par FM sound quality.

Within the hardware limitations of that time, ESS used Mozer’s technology, in software, to produce realistic-sounding voices that often became the boilerplate for the respective games. He is a member of the board of directors of Sensory, Inc.

Return to General Old Hardware. Maybe after reading this thread I should consider activating it again Do you know the differences between ES and ES? The DOS mixer software turned me off those cards however, and some minor incompatibilities with older games. I wants my Duke3D. Any chance you could give it a go with SoftMPU?

This chip was also used in a few arcade games, notably Atari ‘s Wolf Packand Stern Electronics ‘ Berzerk and Frenzyand in several of Stern ‘s pinball machines. There is also an issue with the game port on this card, detailed in the linked thread above.


Re: ESS ES sound card not working after update to Etch

There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. High end home and portable audio players come with ESS dac chips. This page was last edited on 29 Novemberat I forget which one it was. Electronic Speech Systems produced synthetic speech for, among other things, home computer systems like the Commodore Fred Chan VLSI designer and software engineer, [1] in Berkeley, Californiajoined inand took over running the company in when Todd Mozer left for graduate school.

The on board amp can be turned off easily via jumpers. At first, even then, all words were encoded by hand by Mozer in his basement, but in the third or fourth year of the license, National came up with a software encoder for it. I bought it new for a Pentium if I remember correctly. Then again Wolf3D does this even on a SB. The 71x can supposedly do that, however the setup program doesn’t know how.
