First post, by Jacques
in my first PC that was bought in 1995 (P90) I used to have the sound card named "Strauss-16".
It was based on ESS chip (most likely ES688f), had the gameport/midi connector and a wheel for analog volume control.
It was sold in mostly white box with "Strauss 16" logo on it, some music notes for a decoration (IIRC) and description of 16-bit sound capability (in Windows, of course).
Oh, and also full-size microphone was included + 3 disks: drivers (DOS, Win 3.x), Blake Stone (demo), Raptor (demo).
Years on, I never came across that particular ESS card, it must have been one of many ESS-based cards in the era, but maybe someone did have it too, has some photos of actual card, etc?
Thanks in advance for help or any hint about the actual card (nostalgic case) 😀
