It’ll take a bit though since I need to reinstall Windows on that thing. This site hosts no abandonware. Listening to the Doom recordings from the first post, I can hear the loss in quality compared to what I remember. I think the chip was labelled ES When Creative got involved, they upgraded the chip a couple of times, and renamed the chip to ES and then ES

The jack switches modes if 4-speaker output became active. This mode allowed fast, direct access to the system’s entire RAM without requiring a memory manager or memory protection mechanism.

audioci Not sure about DOS V2 demos Playing movies that are all 48 KHz gets you out of pitch audio. The Ensoniq ES audio chip was renamed Creative and revised into AC’97 -compliant variants, the ES and ES, and used for several more years audippci card and as integrated motherboard audio.

This was made possible by the move to the PCI buswith its far greater bandwidth and more efficient bus mastering interface when compared to the older ISA bus standard.

There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. This update supports the following products: Listening to the Doom recordings from the first post, I can hear the loss in quality compared to what I remember. Resampling means lower sound quality, worse synchronization and possibly higher CPU utilization.


The ES isn’t able to play all sample rates properly. I have so many folders it’s getting hard to navigate in DOS.

Aureal has a very usable DOS driver too. They must have been limited by the hardware. Creative Labs Malvern which was the former Ensoniq company that had been acquired later released the Ectiva EV Notably, AudioPCI supports several digital effects reverbchorusand spatial enhancement when used with Microsoft Windows 95 and later versions of Windows.

I notice however you guys are talking about it topping off at 22Khz which is strange to me because it certainly seems like my AudioPCI was clearer and probably at a full 44Khz it sounds closer to the linked Soundscape Elite recordings thread.

I don’t really like AudioPCI that much. Everything works I can hear sound. While Ensoniq’s approach generally worked with most games, some older games had problems detecting the virtualized hardware on some systems.

It is also disappointing considering the incredible popularity and longevity of the Ensoniq ES chipset and its descendants, some of which were still in use six years after the original AudioPCI board, and the fact that DOS drivers for the far newer Sound Blaster Audigy still use “.


It should not be loaded in Windows. This driver update does not contain any wavesets.

With many though not all gravitating to external midi devices e. One important feature of this chip was that it used ajdiopci PCI bus, instead of the ISA bus commonly used by sound cards at that point. Download this patch only if the Autorun or Autoplay feature is disabled; there is no need to download it otherwise.

General Midi however works fine. It is SBPro-capable for digital sound but has no bit choice. It is a highly integrated card. However, without actual hardware for FM synthesisFM music and sound effects were simulated using samples, often with unacceptable results.
