So I have a sound blaster CT1600 and really sad about it not having MPU 401 support.
Can I run two sound cards? I heard this is the setup I should use below. Also which sound card has that perfect soundblaster 1600 CT speech for old dos games and is adlib compatible as well as MPU 401?
What do I do ? Play Mt-32 music through a MPU 401 card and just run a sound blaster pro 2.0 1600CT for adlib /or other speech /and older dos games?
I guess I need to configure dos ? autoexc bat? or install 2 drivers?
If you want a Pro and a 16/AWE to work together, here is the ideal resource setup :
Pro = A220 I7 D1
16/AWE = A240 (260 280) I10 D0 H5 P330
Of course, with a PnP card, you can disable a few resources, but choosing PnP resources is like wrestling with Hulk Hogan. (Maybe not that bad, but still). The 16 is still quite usable with these settings if the game supports choosing the resources in the install program or actually looks at the SET BLASTER variable.
Of course, add a Gravis Ultrasound to the mix, and it gets eve more fun.
