This site hosts no abandonware. Hi and welcome to Vogons! Was this for some kind of proprietary Compaq bus? I also noticed that there are 6 extra pins in addition to the standard bit ISA stuff, you can see them on the bottom left of the card, marked “P4”. Stereo wavetable output is reversed, which is a bit of a bummer, but otherwise I haven’t found anything negative. I ended up going with the older ES based card picture above over the ES based card in the OP because it’s non-PnP and it doesn’t ‘pop’ on startup like my ES, but otherwise the user experience has been the same.

Thanks for your help. CODOR and 3 guests. This is usually where PnP cards are detected and displayed, so it may be a PnP card. It gives you a message about this and that you need to use ICU software.

This disclaimer is brought to you thanks eound the BSA. Very old games might not have a sound setup and default to basic values. Was a great card back in the day, excellent value and the compatibility was amazing.


With this tool you can set the ressources of the card. Basically it is divided into two sections: The music part is defaulted to address h.

Sorry about all the questions i just want to understand what im choosing and why instead of randomly hoping for the best. This section plays all the sound effects like fs1869, explosions etc. My question is why do i have to select two different devices why cant i select soundblaster for both?

ES AudioDrive, quality?

I select soundblaster for soundfx and some variation of midi for music. Whats missing in your collections? Maybe explains why it’s not working? Stereo wavetable output is reversed, which is a bit of a bummer, but otherwise I haven’t found anything negative.

Also why ez1869 i just have to try them all to hope i get the right one for music is there something more to it is there a way of knowing which particular one is meant for my device? Paint Shop Pro 3.

[Sound] an ESS ES1869 sound card problem

Are ES and incompatible with older and ? YouTubeFacebookWebsite. That would add the “General Midi”-standard to the card, a suond method of music rendition for old games.


I like the mixer tool, it works great and makes it easy to create a simple batch file to get the card going. Includes more than 80 soundcards and a growing Wavetable Recording section with more than recordings. Was this for some kind of proprietary Compaq bus? There is rs1869 material that is knowingly illegal here.

Surprisingly mine is PnP. Users browsing this forum: PM me for more details. Ws1869 index All times are UTC.

ESS Technology

I was happy user of SB However it seems the card takes two DMAs, 1 and 0. All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder.

In basically all DOS games since late you can choose “General Midi” as ez1869 music device which usually means the best possible quality of music. BaorancanthearufirageGoogle [Bot]grommitMunxScaliSkoynaywiretap and 9 guests.
