Today I was going to test how this wavetable board sounds, but I was unable to get any sounds out of it. Tried it with two different Sound Blasters, CT2980 and CT2950. Once I heard some weird low volume crackling noise, thats all.
-MPU401 output is working, I play Ultima 7 daily using MT32pi configured on port 300 without any additional software. (Ultima7 doesn't find it on default port 330)
-Also had some problems with FM & adlib, could not get any sound out of that either. This got solved running unisound. Unfortunately it had no effect to wavetable synth.
-I have tried different SET MIDI=SYNTH:0/1 MAP:x etc settings without positive results.
-Mixer is set everything "ON" and high volume.
-Selected "General MIDI" on port 300 or 330 (Doom, TTD).
Some sites claims that CS9233 needs TSR to be loaded, but what that means with this setup? Is SoftMPU enough? - that didn't help anyway.
I assume the board is broken. Before I do any desperate repair attempts, can you explain how Wavetable daughterboard is normally configured to produce sound? Better yet if Dream/Crystal synth.
