While Ensoniq’s approach generally worked with most games, some older games had problems detecting the virtualized hardware on some systems. Pressure from intense competition, especially with the dominant Creative Labs , was forcing audio card makers to try to keep their prices low.

The CT chip is a relabeled ES, may be found on some cheap cards i. It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support. One important feature of this chip was that it used the PCI bus, instead of the ISA bus commonly used by sound cards at that point.

However, without actual hardware for FM synthesisFM music and sound effects were simulated using samples, often with unacceptable results. It is also disappointing considering the incredible popularity and longevity of the Ensoniq ES chipset and its descendants, some of which were still in use six years after the original AudioPCI board, and the fact that DOS drivers for the far newer Sound Blaster Audigy still use “.

In another cost-cutting move, the previously typical ROM chip used for storage of samples for sample-based synthesis was replaced with the facility to use fs1371 RAM as storage for this audio data.

Resampling means lower sound quality, worse synchronization and possibly higher CPU utilization.


This mode allowed fast, direct access to the system’s entire RAM without requiring a memory manager or memory protection mechanism. In addition, the novelty has a webcam p, battery with a resource of battery life of up to 6 h 20 min.

AudioPCI had some surprises for the aufiopci. The board consists only of a very small software-driven audio chip one of the following: For few soundcards feature multiple quartzes or a PLL, resampling is often used with all its potential problems.

Views Read Edit View history. AudioPCI, while creatie to be cheap, is still quite functional. The chip was also a PCI bus master device that was designed to provide high-speed access to system RAM and resources, for sample synthesis data and effect processing. Towards the end of the s, Ensoniq was struggling financially.

This was made possible by the move to the PCI buswith its far greater bandwidth and more efficient auduopci mastering interface when compared to the older ISA bus standard.

In addition, the DOS driver required a memory manager such as EMM to be loaded, which not only required additional conventional memory space but also put the CPU into Virtual mode, conflicting with games that utilized a modified form of protected modecalled ‘flat mode’. Audiopic oddity is that the rear channel was connected to the same output jack as line input.

When programs took full advantage of the API’s capabilities, the ES was capable of both global spatial and localized 3D sound effects, in both 2 and 4-speaker mode. It was Ensoniq’s last sound card product before they were acquired by Creative Technology. The colour depth is 8 bit per channel, however, due to the FRC tech realized this sample is able represent 1.


It was particularly unfortunate because the AudioPCI used system RAM for patch set storage which in itself offers tremendous potential for new patch sets over the traditional ROM storage previously used.

When paired with a capable audiopccisuch as the AK pre-AC’97the ES supported the then-latest in 3D audio positioning through 4-speaker surround sound.

Notably, AudioPCI supports several digital effects reverbchorusand spatial enhancement when used with Microsoft Windows 95 and later versions of Audiopvi. Make use of available links in order to select an appropriate driver, click on those links to start uploading.
