1. Behavior Tech Computer Corporation Sound Card 1859
ESS ES1686A / ES696F Synth
I got the soundblaster part running fine under dos and windows, using generic ESS drivers - but I can't get the synth to play... port 330 seems to be looking for an external synth trough the midi port, and the internal ES696F synth is quiet... anybody manage to get one of these playing synth midi music in dos?
2. Gullemot Maxi Sound 64 ( SC8600 V2.0 )
ESS ES1686 + Dream SAM9407 Synth - 4MB of on board ram + 16MB max on a simm socket.
This guy won't even play SB sound in dos. The on-board ram and any ram I put in the 72 pin socket get pretty warm. The card is detected and configured correctly under both dos and windows, but there's no sound whatsoever. Again, I used generic ESS drivers for the SB compatible part. I didn't even try to get the Dream synth working. Since the ram gets pretty warm, the card may be dead - but maybe I'm doing something wrong?
Any help with either of these (particularly the BTC 1859) would be greatly appreciated.
