Easy to use and Compatible for sure. At the time I presumed the empty solder pads all over the card had something to do with the wavetable header not working. His hardware test threads were great. To confuse the issue I found this information in the deep dark recesses of the interwebs: I’ve had a lot of hardware going bad on me lately, so I’m not in a good position to test at the moment.

You have to execute ‘px blah.
The MPU was recognised no problem, I just never got any sound. I’ve had a lot of hardware audoi bad on me lately, so I’m not in a auxio position to test at the moment. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
Would change the caps on these though. Anyway I have another card with this chipset on the way so hopefully I have more luck with that one. I have several of these cards still around here somewhere. Setting it up was just as easy as before; my one and only problem with it was the wavetable header, which seems not to work.
Do you know what kind of synth these ESS cards are designed for? Board index All times are UTC. Easy to use and Compatible for sure. This chipset was also natively supported in at least one game I tried, and that I like. Go to this directory on your specific drive usually C: Too all Windows 98 users of this card. BTW what ever happened to RetroGames?
Have been playing around with my integrated ESS in my Compaq.

They’ve got to be 20 years old now, and they were off-brand caps to begin with. If the wavetable header worked, I think this card would have topped the ESF. Was a great card back in the day, excellent value and the compatibility was amazing.
This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. His hardware audjo threads were great. Without the onboard stuff, the header is useless too.

I picked up this card for a few bucks because I wanted to try out the ES chipset http: I’ll track down one with the onboard synth functionality too and see if that gives me some love. At the time I presumed the empty solder pads all over the card had something to do with the wavetable header not working.
I’m happy with it so far. This was a couple es16888 years ago and I ended up cracking the shits and sold all my ESS cards in one lot on ebay for a tenner.
Still no action from the wavetable. Users browsing this forum: Will the highways on the internets become more few? No more crappy Orchid that can’t read CD-Rs!
It sounds better than my old SB16 CT and one of the big benefits which I just realized is that PC speaker sound is now directed to cwrd speakers Only downside is that the wavetable connector have been removed on the motherboard but it looks like you can solder it on though EDIT: Testing it is on my to do list though.
