I searched far and wide in the lands of Google and have come up with nothing except some FCC information:
All this tells me is that it was made by Voicon System Inc.
I am interested in finding out some specifications and if anyone has any experience using this card?
Information I have gathered from an 'amateur' visual inspection is:
- it has a real OPL2 Yamaha YM3812-F chip onboard
- it is an 8 bit ISA card
- it has a midi/game port
- 1x line in; 1 x mic in; 1x speaker out
- 1x 4 pin CD/IN header
- 1 chip labelled "1992 Gallant DSP-9202 303 308601"
- 1 chip labelled "1992 Gallant SC-9203 314"
- JP1 jumpers: IRQ selection of 2, 3, 5, 7.
- JP2 jumpers labelled "I/O 2/4 G"
I've gathered so far that it is of course a Gallant card and that this could may be a pretty good stand-in for an original ad-lib card in one of my XT or 286 systems, but I just want to see if anyone has any experience with this card or has any other information about it.
I will do some testing soon when I get a chance to see how it sounds...I am especially interested in the "MIDI" port and if it by some miracle provides UART mode output (highly doubtful). I wish I had my MIDI devices with me though to test it, but my hoard is in storage far away from me at the moment.
Thanks in advance for any information on this.
