Be interesting to hear which games these were, as games requiring SB16 or even being able to use 16bit / 44.1khz SB are quite rare and the possibility they might incorporate this capability is interesting.

Hmm... DOTT doesn't use any SB16 modes. Something else going on. Was it a true SBPro or a clone?

If the AWE fixed the garbled sound, maybe those games require SB16 (or at least SB16 compatibility), which the SBPro wouldn't have.

You might check this auction for an SB16 ct2830 which has a Yamaha OPL chip and IDE interface and the seller is in the UK.
