Hi everyone (I need to log in here more often!) I recently got a Gravis Ultrasound, rev 2.4 off ebay for dirt cheap. I wanted to put it in my old Dell Optiplex as it has tons of full length ISA slots I'm not using. I currently have a Sound Blaster AWE32, model CT-3900 for my main sound card. This is the one with the big memory slots and it's controlled by software instead of jumpers. My question is, will this cause an IRQ conflict in either DOS or Windows 98? Doesn't the Ultrasound use IRQ 240 instead of 220 by default, like the Blasters? Can I use the Gravis for MIDI and the AWE32 as a "SB16?" If not, I have a real SB16 lying around somewhere. I don't mind experimenting- always have been a DOS nerd. 😀 I'd like to try games like Doom, Blood, X-Com etc with the Gravis as I'm currently using my Roland SC-55 on my laptop. Thanks for any input!
