Re: Reverse stereo in Quake with YMF718 based card

in Marvin \ Sound
It's probably because Sound Blaster Pro has switched channels by default and since Audician card pretends it's a Sound Blaster Pro, Quake switches the channels automatically to the "correct" configuration. It's just guessing but entirely possible. I'm sure there is something you can do about it, …

Re: Yamaha YMF71x SB Pro Mixer Bug Issue Fix

in Marvin \ Sound
Well, there is ESS Audiodrive 16bit support in some DOS games but many of them use that horrible filtering. If there would be a way to remove it, it would be a nice option. All in all, good card with Yamaha, Crystal or ESS chip would be great solution. All of these IC's have their strengths and …

Re: Yamaha YMF71x SB Pro Mixer Bug Issue Fix

in Marvin \ Sound
Well I was interested in a case there are just some caps or 0Ohm resistors missing (it is visible that the ceramics capacitors near waveblaster connector are configured differently than on the card without QDSP). It's probably still more convenient to have different card with waveblaster header and …

Re: Yamaha YMF71x SB Pro Mixer Bug Issue Fix

in Marvin \ Sound
Interesting mod, I will probably try it as well in spare time. I have another question concerning Audician cards - I have a model with QDSP wavetable chips, would it be possible to mod the card so I could add a waveblaster header and the card would pick either the QDSP wavetable or waveblaster if …

Re: What video card should I pair with a Pentium MMX?

in Marvin \ Video
My recommendation for P1 system would be Riva 128 PCI or TNT PCI or TNT2 M64 PCI. All of these cards have good 3D capabilities for 97 titles and excellent DOS support. If you'll stick with Win95, you could try Ati Rage Pro PCI. Should be very cheap and similar to Riva 128 or Voodoo 1 performance …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

There is another video in which the owner plays Gods and King's Quest V: https://www.clous.cz/jamicon-spacestation-386-part2/ Works great! Too bad such a project is destined to be for only handful of boards. Especially since the creator invested so much time in it. And even if it won't be possible …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

in Marvin \ Sound
Those boards look awesome. Nice to see the real thing. Too bad it's partially obscured but I guess it's either to protect the design or to avoid possible legal issues. Thanks for the photos! I hope more of these beauties will get publicly available someday. Could you be more specific how those …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

in Marvin \ Sound
Well, I have checked again the video and he is using SoftMPU. Makes sense since Legend of Kyrandia doesn't work with UART mode. Nice to see it works great with 386 SX25. Is MT-32 emulation on GM cards capable of producing proper sound effects?

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

in Marvin \ Sound
Yeah, this could be the same thing. I know for sure it's just plain ISA sound card with MIDI daughterboard only but I have no idea how it looks like or how it works. I just know (thanks to the video) that compatibility is great and that it sounds excellent. Wish I knew more about this product!

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

in Marvin \ Sound
Well I'm sure he's not using real MT-32 or SC-55 module and it really is ISA card with a daughterboard only. He's showing the back of the computer and you can see it's directly connected to the speaker out jack of the card, there is no other connection. But it is possible it's just some other …

MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

in Marvin \ Sound
Check this video: https://www.clous.cz/jamicon-spacestation-386/ The owner of the computer uses generic ISA card with a DIY waveblaster daughterboard which seeems to be fully compatible with MT-32 standard and sounds excellent. It's even compatible with Legend of Kyrandia 1, which needs intelligent …
