Re: Audio problem with Ensoniq S-2000

Ok, so I sent the card to a tech to get it recapped, of course he claimed to have problems with some caps and only ended recapping the ones he thought were "the worst". Really though, he took a long time to do it, (1.5 months) claiming he was "busy". So big waste of time there. I've actually been …

Re: Audio problem with Ensoniq S-2000

... and risk getting higher distortion as a side effect. Distortion is a lot lower on bipolars (and much higher voltage rating) capacitors and not going to be higher, due to the thicker coating on the electrodes. I'm not completely sure what the mechanism is but measurements done by some people ( …

Re: Audio problem with Ensoniq S-2000

Soundscape 2000 cards are known for developing bad caps, so my bet is also on bad capacitors. More precisely, it's about the electrolytic SMD caps, that's the silver cans with "45 10 16V" or "46 1 50V" printed on them. Your card has 16 of the former type and 4 of the latter. You would need proper …

Re: Audio problem with Ensoniq S-2000

Here it is. If it is bad capacitors, I may need help finding out which ones to get. I then will try to find someone to do it for me as I have never soldered anything before in my life. I paid a lot for this card too so I don't mind having to get this done.

Audio problem with Ensoniq S-2000

So I purchased an Ensoniq Soundscape S-2000. I made sure all the jumper settings were default and that everything matched in windows and Dos (as far as configuration goes). Here is the issue. The sound is very low and mostly only coming out of the left speaker. It comes out of the right side too but …

Re: Sound card issues with hardware acceleration

I have come to the conclusion that I think something is physically wrong with my Ensoniq card. After countless hours fiddling with the card to get it to do what I want in Pure DOS (Works fine in Win 98 other than the hardware acceleration issue) I said "enough". (Eventually it stopped working …

Re: Overclocking a Voodoo 3 2000 AGP.

I don't think you require additional cooling, that Noctua fan on that dinky heatsink is already doing a lot of work. The question is less whether or not the chip can do it (it usually can get you up there), but more of a question if the memory chips are up to it. Check to see how many ns they are …

Re: Sound card issues with hardware acceleration

I remember having the same problem but with a different sound card back in the day. I think you need a wdm driver for your sound card. If there isn't one available you are SOL. I think you are exactly correct. I ran the directx test and it even says my hardware does not support acceleration while …

Sound card issues with hardware acceleration

Hello, I recently installed an Ensoniq S4016 VIVO ISA card into my P3 system. It seemed to work fine, however I get these random loud static noises when a game or windows plays a sound. It seems to be related to Hardware acceleration because when I turn it off, the problem goes away. Has anyone …

Re: Overclocking a Voodoo 3 2000 AGP.

Imho the Voodoo3 2000 AGP in its factory config already needed a better heatsink and/or a different heatsink>chip connection considering how hot it usually run. So I'd not overclock it nowdays not to mention I'd not change voltages on such cards, considering also the ram chips are a limit too. Back …
