Re: New sound card project: AWE64 Legacy

Yeah, I'm going to buy any AWE64 I'll come across to save them all. Well, I’m desperately sorry, fellow Vogon, but you couldn’t save this one. 😉 Bought it from a seller in Hungary just for the eventuality this project sees the day of life. The only chances for survival of this card are option A, I …

Re: Yamaha TG-100 / TG-300 and MT-32 mode

And two more, Gabriel Knight and Space Quest 1. Sorry to tell, but these are bad choices to test MT-32 emulation of TG-300. Even Roland SC-55's MT-32 emulation sounds wrong with these games since they use custom instruments (uploaded by SySex messages at start) that only native LA synths (MT-32, CM …

Re: New sound card project: AWE64 Legacy

Yeah, I'm going to buy any AWE64 I'll come across to save them all. That seems awfully spiteful, but you do you. Edit: That being said... While I think hoarding any retro hardware is selfish and spiteful, I agree with hard1k that I'd rather they were hoarded than bought up by scrappers. I wasn't …

Re: New sound card project: AWE64 Legacy

Destroying original, never to be produced again, SB Awe 64 Value cards to build something so amateur and over-complicated, which offers so little improvement, if any, and it is not retro hardware anymore, over using 2 original retro sound cards in a true retro system, escapes my mind. There are …

Re: SB Pro 2.0 vs. AWE32 vs. AWE64 ?

Word of warning here: several AWE32 cards also use CQM. (CT3990 and CT4330) You're right, I forgot …

Re: SB Pro 2.0 vs. AWE32 vs. AWE64 ?

AWE32 doesn't have the cleanest output, but it's certainly better, than SB Pro. If you care about FM synth, stick with AWE32. Most of the AWE32 versions allow you to put more RAM in it, if that's the one you've got, stick with it. AWE64 uses proprietary module, which is almost impossible to find. …
