Re: Sound Blaster: From best to worst

nice work on the latest update. i really have to say though, i am uneasy with the "Self Noise" column and how it's purely based on the DAC. it's uncomfortably close to those endless arguments in audiophile forums comparing two CD players, one with 64x oversampling DACs, and the other with 128x …

Re: Sound Blaster 16 & AWE: From best to worst

interesting, my ALS007 worked just fine with DOTT yes, MAYBE i have an ALS007 somewhere? one thing is for sure, the ALS007 is definitely not the same chip as the ALS100 with a different marking; the Windows drivers have different INF files: 5118 05-15-96 17:41 ALS007.INF 5069 05-15-96 17:36 ALS100. …

Re: Sound Blaster 16 & AWE32: From best to worst

nice chart, though i would *personally* add one bit of info. it mentions how the entire AWE32 and SB32 series has that Duke3D slowdown weirdness with external MIDI music, inherited from the SB16 series. this is true, but remember that Duke3D *does* have native AWE32 support, and therefore it IS …

Re: Jill of the Jungle Sound Effects

in DOS
for this game, digital sounds are pretty clumsy to my mind and PC speaker a bit better. i couldn't disagree more... the weird SFX are possibly the very BEST parts of these games. especially the ones in Jill 2. which is why i am SO grateful for this patch. the sound effects are broken on too many of …
