Hi everyone, I am looking for some help, tips, or advice on how I should troubleshoot these two Ensoniq Soundscape cards I have. They are both identical S2000 non Elite versions.
Test PC is using Win 98SE, P2 233mhz, 128ram, Voodoo Banshee
Card A installs and gives no errors but is really quiet. Like I have to turn the speakers almost to full blast to hear albeit low.
Card B shown in picture below, gives error (also posted below) initial saying unable to communicate DMA, but no longer states this apon further reboots.
However SB/Wave functionality still works, but no MIDI. It's sound levels however are perfect and can be heard at standard volume settings.
Troubleshooting so far has been double checking setting and swapping cards back and forth. Tried contact cleaner as well no change. Also checked visually with the caps but I understand there could be an issue with one leaking underneath of the surface mounts.
Swaaye if you see this I know you have experience with Soundscapes.
