Modifying soundblaster to have a bug-free CT1741?

Postby pentiumspeed » 2019-1-11 @ 01:14

Have anyone changed CT1741 on a good sound blaster with buggy hanging note to one that is bug-free like 4.05 or 4.16 instead of 4.11/4.13?

Good CT1741 IC taken from any sound blaster.

Cheers, Pentiumspeed

4.05 cards are quite hard (only few early SB16 models) to find and 4.16 is AWE64.

Also:
!) It's pointless anyway, because best SB16 cards are based on "bug-free" CT1747.
2) Fixing Sound Blasters 16+ is the lost cause, because all of them are riddled with various bugs.

Yes, works fine. I have documented it here: viewtopic.php?f=62&t=63580&p=712904

I also think that using a CT1747-based card as The Serpent Rider said is the better way but in my case I needed the SCSI-interface.

Cheers,
Michael
