Re: Difference between Ensoniq Soundscape ROMs?

In case you are collecting part numbers, maybe this one (currently at my hand) might be interesting, too: Spea Media FX (S2000 OEM edition, sold e.g. at Vobis in Germany) P/N 4001022801 Rev D Assy Number 40900228 01 Rev E ROM: 1350901601 Size: 2MB Tnx - looks very close to the regular S2000. [...] …

Re: Difference between Ensoniq Soundscape ROMs?

heh, I was about to buy that card but then found this thread, thanks for clarification, I guess this is not the one I'm looking for then ^^ Thing is, we don't know how it sounds as it is a different 1MB ROM to the Opus and Vivo90, rather it has the same ROM as the Soundscape DB rev B. So, it …

Re: Iconic Sound Blaster CT numbers

I don't know how many people could spare to mount them, but I'd go for an early SB with CMS CT1320A, SB Pro with dual FM chips CT1330A and the fully featured AWE32 CT2760 as a strong set of three to start. The fourth would be an SB16, probably an early one. Tbh these are exactly the cards you could …

Re: Difference between Ensoniq Soundscape ROMs?

I have recordings of the Opus (1MB), Vivo (1MB), S-2000 (2MB) and Elite (2MB). http://www.mediafire.com/folder/uc37ntgrkgxhr/Sound_Card_Recordings The takeaway was 2MB is better. Believe it or not. lol Not to say that the 1MB sets aren't enjoyable. Do you hear any difference between the Opus and …

Re: Difference between Ensoniq Soundscape ROMs?

I believe the 2MB ROM chip has "2M" written on it and the 1MB "1M" or "1M2", I've never seen a small 44-pin chip being 2MB though. Er, did you read the list of different chips I compiled in the topicstart? Take a look at the Elite, or for that matter on the Soundscape DB rev A, both 'small' 44-pin …

Re: Difference between Ensoniq Soundscape ROMs?

As I have a rev B DB, I can make a recording or two. Same Doom track? Would be great :) I should have cards with most of the different ROMs. The S-2000 cards are easy to tell which have the 1MB ROM as the ROM on those is the much smaller chip compared to the full size DIP package chip from what I …

Difference between Ensoniq Soundscape ROMs?

Ensoniq cards are famous for their good quality. Unfortunately the best of the lot (S-2000 and particularly Elite) are also getting famous for astronomical prices, so the cheaper alternatives (OEM S-2000-ish cards, Opus and VIVO90) might be more attractive. But then things get complicated. It looks …

Re: Main retro PC sound devices, ordered by Open International Market Price 2020, for hobbyists in smaller/remoter count

I got my MT-32 in exchange for a sealed new-in-box Matrox M3D (PowerVR PCX2). I picked the latter up as part of big load of 'make an offer on this crap in the potatocam photo' stuff in more-or-less-local classifieds I picked up for iirc EUR 50. I wasn't even aware the M3D was in there when I did ( …
