Re: Sound Blaster 16 Clones

The datasheet for the ALS007 is not available, but mine doesn't do high DMA. Reading the datasheet of the ALS100 makes me think the high DMA is being used for full duplex/recording only and not in the way the original SB16 uses it.

Re: New sound card project: AWE64 Legacy

Ah that's good to know. I've noticed that the DB50XG and the Yucatan FX/Cancun FX often sound reversed in comparison to the Dream Blasters when used on the same hardware. They do sound correct when used on Sound Blaster 16 models en Turtle Beach cards. I will dig up my ExpertColor MED3700 YMF719 …

Re: Games that sound best with GUS?

in Milliways
Yes, the difference in sound is often lack of interpolation (that is really taxing on 486 class machines) but sometimes also less accurate software mixing routines with lots of rounding errors or even 8 bit output. Also, the GUS needs far less bus and memory access when playing music and sound …

Re: Best and worst sound cards you have ever owned?

Best: Aztech MMSN824 I've been using an MMSN830 for a little while now. It's really solid, great sound, not a crackle or pop to be heard. I haven't compared noise levels but from what I heard I like it even better then my Turtle Beach Tropez. Worst: Asus I-A16C (Vibra 16C chipset). Basically a …

Hanging notes in Doom, delays in Duke 3D with 44khz mixing and hard clipping in Skyroads. It has a wavetable header with I think is reversed stereo (tested with the Yucatan FX …

Re: Sound Blaster 16 Clones

I tested the ALS007 some more, most seems in line with James-F review of the ALS100+: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=58612 One of the things I tested was Wolf3D where the mixer is being used for stereo effects. Here stereo was reversed as well. I then tried the mixer, muting all the left …
