I didn't want to revive this old thread:
Sound Card List
but just wanted to add:
I have got both these ISA cards and the main difference between them is that sb32pnp is not fully awe32 compatible.
sb32pnp doesn't have 512kB of ram so no game is able to load it's own instrument samples into it (though I don't know whether there were such games). Cause of the same reason it is also not able to "emulate 😉" GM, GS and MT32. (it just cannot load those samples:
Synthmt.sbk (62,466) )
Although I was able to load Synthgm.sbk and it emulated GM (I don't understand why)
I can load all these samples when i add two simm modules to the card. So the card is awe32 compatible after adding memory.
