Creative Labs Malvern which was the former Ensoniq company that had been acquired later released the Ectiva EV The following Wikipedia webpage has quite a lot of info about it – http: My website with reviews, demos, drivers, tutorials and more In another cost-cutting move, the previously typical ROM chip used for storage of samples for sample-based synthesis was replaced with the facility to use system RAM as storage for this audio data.

It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support. Their cards were very popular with PC OEMsbut their costs were too high and their musical instrument division was fading in revenue. Also, when the installation has finished, do auduopci a restart to ensure that all changes take effect properly.


When Creative got involved, they upgraded the chip a couple of times, and renamed the chip to ES and then ES It’ll take a bit though since Ss1370 need to reinstall Windows on that thing.

They must have been limited by the hardware.


It is the only member of the family that can play without resampling and this is both a plus and a caveat depending on what you want to play.

This was a smart cost saving measure!

It is a auxiopci integrated card. 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.

The chip was capable of spatializing all audio automatically, but xudiopci required DirectSound3D usage for specific localization of sounds. I don’t really like AudioPCI that much.

Listening to the Doom recordings from the first post, I can hear the loss in quality compared to what I remember. Not sure about DOS V2 demos Aidiopci template wayback links.
