First post, by alexanrs
I've got a nice old Pentium 133 that I've been playing with recently, but the problem is that the only sound card I had to put in it was my old SBLive!
While things sound decent enough within Windows 98 (not taking OPL into account), under DOS the compatibility is a bit dodgy, and GM doesn't sound that good either.
Since this board does have ISA slots I was thinking about getting an old ISA card and call it a day, but finding nice ones can be a bit hard here in Brazil (can't find a nice ISA AWE64 - that would be a dream come true). I managed to find these:
SB16 CT2910 - http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-596024 … JM#questionText
Vibra16 CT2950 (don't know how to identify if it has the OPL chip or not) - http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-593766 … -16bits-isa-_JM
Vibra16 C4180 - http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-594056 … -computador-_JM
I also found a few clones:
A YMF719e-s based one (non specified) - http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-585780 … -ymf7-19e-s-_JM
ECS AudioDrive(?) - http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-581682 … -windows-98-_JM
Aztech At-3500 - http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-585527 … 0-u-isa-pnp-_JM
Can you guys help me and point out the pros and cons of these boards? There are also a bunch of Crystal based ones, but reading a few posts here gave me the impression that those aren't good at all
Thanks in advance 😀
