Re: Crystal Audio Chips.. any fans?

Yeah, but no one seems to have done it despite the claims that one is inferior (which is not my experience..) I only have a CS4289 paired with a CS4232 (the famous Zoltrix card), and I find the FM output harsh and objectionable. Not as bad as CQM, mind you. I never noticed any of the FM clicking …

Re: Crystal Audio Chips.. any fans?

Also, is there solid proof that this chip's OPL3 is worse than CS4236 anywhere? I hear this parrotted over and over but to me it sounds pretty identical to CS4236? I think Crystal just integrated this into the CS4235, fucked it up then fixed it in CS4236.. Surely there's a way of running through …

Re: Crystal Audio Chips.. any fans?

4231 has no internal FM at all - maybe the info assumes an external FM chip (so as to have a cs4231+fm "full" WSS compatible card) AFAIK internal FM started with the broken implementation in the CS4235 chip, it was fixed in CS4236 and carried over to CS4237 and CS4238 - beyond these I have no …

Re: My Dual Pentium 3 Slot 1

Only thing I love more then a slot 1 machine is a dual slot 1 machine :) What OS? and that stick of ram is looking lonely by itself I installed winXP, now I use 4x128Mb for ram and It's working well. Nice! Have you tried NT4? I've got a dual P3 Epox KP6-BS rig. With 1gb of RAM, the level of …

Re: HardMPU, anyone?

For MIDI synths, it would require an audio circuit, but that's about it. Ideally, it would be available in a nice handy form factor that plugs into a standard pin header. Ideally, most sound card models would have this standard pin header.

Re: Sound Blaster 16 Bugs and Deficiencies Summary

Well, darn. It looks like Creative's bad habits started before the Sound Blaster 16. :| I found that the upper half of the quad amp at U11 on a CT1600 Sound Blaster Pro 2 was floating too. https://www.vogons.org/download/file.php?mode=view&id=100390 It's hard to tell but pins 8-10 and 12-14 are …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

... a DIY waveblaster daughterboard which seeems to be fully compatible with MT-32 ... See: http://members.home.nl/c.kersten/ It says "And just today two more, very special new boards arrived from the same source: LAPC on a MIDI daughterboard! It must have been especially difficult sourcing those …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

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? Not completely, although it can be okay when titles …

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

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! I'm …
