Didn't notice this right away but was wondering why Doom sounds are panned weird. Then I ran Duke3D setup.exe SB Pro stereo test and unfortunately this test confirms that SB Pro emulation reverses channels with this card. My Aureal Vortex AU8810A1 PCI sound card plays SB Pro correctly. Tested also with Doom and Duke3D. With YMF in Windows if I for example play wav file, channels are correct. OPL3 with AT2 under DOS plays stereo correctly. Line-in isn't reversed either. Reversed stereo test for MPU-401 port is yet untested.
Anyone else have this problem with their YMF7x4 cards? If there is no fix to this then I will buy a YMF7x4 card that doesn't have this problem if those do exist. Already asked one seller that sells YMF744 sound cards and that seller tested SB Pro stereo with Duke3D and reported to have stereo reversed with that card as well. I checked Yamaha YMF7x4 Guide from Vogons but nobody said anything about reversed stereo with SB Pro emulation mode so I decided make a topic about it.
I haven't found any YMF mixer option for reversing stereo. Any tool exist to reverse stereo just for SB Pro in DOS?
Is my card bad or are all the YMF7x4 cards like this? Any specific YMF7x4 card known to have SB Pro Stereo correct or any card that has stereo reversed in every situation? The latter would be simple to fix by reversing the left/right cable connection.
I really hope this is not a common feature of YMF7x4 sound cards. I find it very odd to not have found anything related to "SB Pro stereo reversed" from Yamaha YMF7x4 Guide (Yamaha YMF7x4 Guide)
