I just bought a Media Vision Jazz16 ISA sound card (IXW-JAZZ16)
I bought it untested in a lot and found time to test it this evening.
Unfortunately, the card seems affected by a weird issue.
Sound is played at an incorrect speed. Much faster and with a higher pitch than normal.
This only affects the sound effects. MIDI (via OPL3) is played at a normal speed.
For example, in Doom, music is fine, while gunshots and monster sound are distorted.
I first thought of a CPU related speed issues so i tried various settings :
- Initial test : K6-2 500
- Second test : K6-2 500 @250
- Third test : MMX233 (on different MB)
I also tested on both DOS 6.22 and Windows 98SE.
Same issue (windows sounds are played at high speed)
Despite being dusty, the card shows no signs of damages.
I'm staring to suspect the capacitors, even if they looks good.
Any thoughts ?
Thank you very much !
