Sound Blaster 16 DSP Version

Postby dvanaria » 2014-1-10 @ 15:56

Hi - I realize this is a noob question - I'm looking for a good SB16 card to use with my MT-32 and SoftMPU.

I want to avoid the midi hanging note bug.

My question is: how do I tell what version DSP my SB16 card has? Is it an actual chip on the board? I have a CT1740.

thanks in advance for help

Look at the chip marked Creative Technology CT1471. That is the DSP chip and the version number is on it and starts with V4xx. If its V405 or below, you don't have the bug. If its V411, V412 or V413, then you do.

Got it, thank you!

It's the CT1741 chip right? (I think you had a typo in your reply).

Unfortunately I've got V4.11 so I guess this card has the bug.

Are a lot of games effected by this bug? I wonder if the SoftMPU program will compensate for it somehow, maybe correct it in some games?
