Built-in sound cards weren’t standard till Pentium era of notebooks and DOS supports is also questionable. Did not check to see if the config files edits were sufficient by themselves. This Ubuntu page was really helpful. Old Aztech cards like this one can be unambiguously identified by comparing the FCC-ID printed on the board against the list at ftp: Just running sbiload with no options should initialize the sound correctly. The problem is, even though this video was posted less than a month ago, all the “good” models that were listed are now seemingly impossible to find on eBay.

In another touch of irony, the Windows drivers didn’t even work. Have already bought some XD to take it’s screen, but then again I noticed that it was x In aplaymidi, the output is sometimes similar to that from DOOM; other times it is blatantly broken and cryxtal messed up. The video controller has 1MB memory but the screen is x Wav music sounds good.

This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. ZIP package don’t work any better than the later versions did. I suppose I really should get it out of there.

Both cards have only a single output jack, both cards swap the left and right channels in most contexts, and both cards have lackluster bass response. You won’t find the original belt, but you can use a 1x1x70mm or maybe 68mm tape deck belt.

Only DMAs 0, 1, and 3 are selectable. INI or the sound will not work at all. Sadly, never found one again. The crystal b it comes with is not to shabby either.

In practice, the default and correct answers for these are nearly always, 5, 1, and 5, respectively. OPTi chips were used on off-brand cards that are anything but rare. LCD could be better response time but you can always use external display.

Make sure the bit DMA channel is correct. However, this option is also useful for PnP sound cards. MegaMID works to play.

Will look for x TFT though. Yet another case of DOS drivers buried within a Crgstal executable. It’s not the FM synthesis per se ; it’s that certain high-pitched instruments are way too loud relative to the others have a listen. DN3D music is still glitched. Please rate it below on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is the lowest and 10 is the highest score.

Discrete sound cards based on these chips are not as common as Sound Blasters and OPTi-based cards but they are gettable. If you’re not in the mood for soldering, a CA-1 cable from HT Omega can be made to fit the AWE64 Gold header by snipping plastic bits off the front and back of the otherwise flat 2-pin connector. Shuffled the jacks watch that! It’s also very quiet, fos extreme mixer settings for balance.

Oh, that docking station is really sweet! The unusual 5-pin connector for CD audio appears on several Media Vision cards. Here’s some pics of mine: I have it with a docking station which is somewhat “slim”, that mean’s it adds only some thickness to the notebook and doesn’t go beyond the outline. Thank crysatl and have fun! If it’s V, V or V, then crytsal do. This problem is resolved by pressing the reset button.

In any event, the sound font quality could be improved only so much given the limitations of the PAT format.
