Still no action from the wavetable. At the time I presumed the empty solder pads all over the card had something to do with the wavetable header not working. Anyway I have another card with this chipset on the way so hopefully I have more luck with that one. His hardware test threads were great.

Labway ESS ES1688 AudioDrive Free Driver Download

This was a couple of years ago and I ended up cracking the shits and sold all my ESS cards in one lot on ebay for a tenner. 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 the 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: I’ll track down one with the onboard synth functionality too and see if that gives me some love.

Easy to use and Compatible for sure. Do you know what kind of synth these Es16888 cards are designed for? To confuse the issue I found this information in the es688 dark recesses of the interwebs: This chipset was also natively supported in at least one game I tried, and that I like.

Return to General Old Hardware. They’ve got to be 20 years old now, and they were off-brand caps to begin with. No more crappy Orchid that can’t read CD-Rs!

Go to this directory on your specific drive usually C: 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. Would change the caps on these though.

BTW what ever happened to RetroGames? I’ve had a lot of hardware going bad on me lately, so Audiodriive not in a good position to test at the moment. Not the best at anything, but not bad at anything either, which is rare. I’m happy with it so far.

Still no action from the wavetable. Es1688 have several of these cards still around here somewhere. If the wavetable header worked, I think this card would have topped the ESF.

Testing it is on my to do list though. At the time I presumed the empty solder pads all over the card had something to do with the wavetable header not working.
