Re: New sound card project: AWE64 Legacy

James-F , no. The main point of new modern clones is to have maximum possible functionality. In relation to current project: we have 28mb RAM, OPL, second separate MPU channel, WB header - all rolled into one. And fixed bugs/disadvantages. The point is to copy original and make it cheap is if we …

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

You can throttle it. For example you can't throttle P2, P3. Do not confuse people. Of course you can throttle P2 and P3 via chipset throttling, which gives the same results but is actually a much better experience: no need for two-layer throttling implementation with both throttle.exe and msred.com …

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

p6889k , I already said when you have real ISA blaster just forget about PCI emulation. So you have real Sound Blaster 16, just remove Legacy Audio Driver and forget it. Of course you can configure 2-3 sound blasters. But why? It doesn't have any sense. Second, about soundfonts. Yes, you can load …

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

Yes, it's very sober remark. Moreover if you don't need EAX, if you don't need to mix more than 1-2 cards (modules) you can try it without Live/Audigy. Live/Audigy gives us two (three) digital stereo, three analog stereo and three analog mono inputs. If we add 5'25 Extension we have two more analog …

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

I don't know, it's only your choice. PCI is Audigy1 for sure, with 5'25 extension (Live/Audigy1 pinouts are compatible with each other, Audigy2 pinout is not compatible). ISA - maybe AWE64 Gold and GUS Ace - much expensive. Maybe good cheap ESS with WT-header and WT-daughter, second is cheap AWE. …

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=60428 For Pentium 4 and Core 2 there is one MSR which controls throttling - 0x19A. Command: MSRED W 19A NN Examples: MSRED W 19A 18 - 50% CPU speed MSRED W 19A 14 - 25% CPU speed MSRED W 19A 12 - 12,5% CPU speed MSRED W 19A 2 - 100% CPU speed You can place …

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

Thank you for all the detail, great info. How does windows decide whether to use ISA or PCI for your windowed DOS games? Do you do anything or is that by default PCI is used, but for some reason some games pickup the ISA? Please read once again carefully and don't equate Yamaha and others PCI. He …

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

my earlier assumption that "windowed dos games play fine with PCI" is correct Almost yes. But not always, often not fine, not 100%... Anyway if you have ISA bus just leave it for DOS sound independent of pure/windowed session. You do have so excellent mobo with ISA, just forget about PCI DOS sound. …

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

If I go the dual sound route, should I eventually change to better PCI card - which one? Your P4 system is much enough for Audigy card. Audigy has much better output. You can route AWE64's output into Audigy and have fun in Windows and pure DOS. Disable AWE64 in Device Manager and enable only PCI …

Re: Strange nVIDIA 4x.xx+ win9x bug

Sorry guys I didn't say, it doesn't matter what the keyboard. I've tried PS/2 and USB with the same result. And I started this system even on FSB400 - 100x11=1100MHz CPU, 100x6=600MHz CPU. With the same result. I haven't tried P4. Do you think it's worth to run it?
