Re: How to get the AWE64D CT4600 working in DOS?

Here are all the PCI registers I managed to identify when playing around with different settings of the Sound Blaster emulation in Windows. Sound Blaster low DMA Register 40h bit 7-6 0 00 1 01 3 11 Sound Blaster IRQ Register 41h bit 1-0 5 00 7 01 9 10 10 11 Enable Sound Blaster? Register 41h bit 7 …

Re: Different Versions of Ensoniq AudioPCI

Does the Ensoniq 1370 with Ensoniq drivers offer an option for Ensoniq Soundscape only under DOS? So no Sound Blaster including FM? I've seen attempts to disable only the FM, but can the Sound Blaster inc. FM be disabled all together? And the 1370 is incompatible with the Creative drivers? Vendor …

Re: How to connect SC-55 in DOS?

The CT4750 and other Ensoniq PCI based cards doesn't output MIDI through the game port in DOS. Same applies to the Live! …

Re: How to get the AWE64D CT4600 working in DOS?

Now I actually got the cards Sound Blaster 16 part to initialize and working under DOS (confirmed with Duke Nukem 3D), but it's still muted. If I boot and exit Windows to get the card unmuted it somhows screws the cards DMA. Here is how I initialized the card, note that I commented out the DMA 5 …

Re: New sc-55 can't get it working in dos

I didn't think so, it is only for mt-32 stuff right? I am very new to setting up dos this deeply so I am pretty ignorant to most of what I am reading on here. Anyway I did get a usb midi cable with my purchase and it has worked flawlessly in win xp so I tried eduke32 the other night and it worked …

Re: How to get the AWE64D CT4600 working in DOS?

I'm not sure if you even can use it in DOS. I searched it up and found it's an OEM card. I wish I had one of those cards, as my Windows 98 PC doesn't have any ISA slots whats so ever. It's a bit weird if it can't be used under DOS as Creative invented(?) and included a SBLINK (PC/PCI) connector on …

How to get the AWE64D CT4600 working in DOS?

I'm trying to get my AWE64D CT4600 to work under DOS, but I can't find any tool to initialize it. I poked around with some PCI registers and got the legacy ports enabled by setting register 41h bit 7 to 0. The FM synth and the MPU-401 interface are working by doing this, but I have to boot into …

Re: Different Versions of Ensoniq AudioPCI

I just acquired an old PC tower with an Ensoniq AudioPCI 3000 card using the chip ES1370, my OS is Windows NT 4.01 and I am unable to find the drivers for that card! By any chance, is there someone here who have the drivers for NT available? You can try out this driver specified by Creative as "SB …

Re: HardMPU, anyone?

Thanks for your answer Tiido, much appreciated. It is not impossible but there are many gotchas. The card that then talks to the AWE will need to be bus mastering capable and this brings chipset incompatibilites into the matter most probably. This really sounds like the biggest obstacle to get my …

Re: HardMPU, anyone?

Was thinking that the HardMPU/"HardAWEUTIL" receives the MIDI data at port 330h over the ISA bus and then the HardMPU talks to the AWE32/64 sound card at port 620h over the same ISA bus in EMU8000 "language". Sound banks could be loaded directly to the AWE32/64 and then the HardMPU could receive the …
