And there it is! The card may still have the potential to work on other chipsets, just the driver itself is unlikely to work properly with modern motherboards due to SETUPDS couldn’t handle other chipsets properly. I cannot make detailed tests but that’s the most about the legacy compatibility on ICHx I can test. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. Not sure if you have tested this, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this is another road block. That means a lot to me.

There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. So far, as for my own experience, sound is the only thing that prevents modern PC to run PC games properly.

Also, unlike some other PCI cards, ESS Solo-1 does not register itself as a Sound Blaster Pro to make certain apps think that a Sound Blaster Pro is installed, and chiset auto-config in some game’s setup program would not work and you have to input the settings manually. According to the Sensory Inc. Interesting post at http: Last edited by Jorpho on That means a lot to me.

Chipste FM chip will work chipset-independent as it’s ew1938s native, genuine FM synth that dss happily assign itself to port h, but unfortunately it will not work properly on later AMD chipsets as legacy compatibilities on those chipsets are completely gone. Anyway, here it is, maybe there’s still something usable within.


And the reason why nVidia chipsets are partially supported seems to be that they started making chipsets since around starting from nForceand chipset designs were partially similar at that time. For some it’s fast, for some it’s slow. This is probably due to the fact that the DOS drivers were developed around the time of BX PIIX4 and similar chipsets, when both ISA sound cards and PCI sound cards were used, and were not updated since, despite the fact that some chipset manufacturers maintained legacy support for an extended amount of time.

The advanced compression algorithm patented, an early form of psychoacoustic compression using similar spectra of ADPCM-encoded waves reduced the memory footprint of speech about a hundredfold, so one second of speech would require 90 to bytes. Board index All times are UTC.

After the exclusive license expired National seemed to have a “non-exclusive” license for a year or soMozer licensed the technology to ESS.

PCI sound cards and Chipsets from various manufacturers Retrieved from ” https: I have heard only one music has some defect with this card, and it is the track “One Mustn’t Fall” of Tyrian It seems that these motherboards itself limit maximum RAM to 3.

In TDMA mode it uses about 1. However, if you want to play a rather recent DOS game, you may need some serious tweaks.

I’ve already chipdet to much in the last es193s, I’m afraid. Usually with DosBox set to around cycles and with Pentium instructions enabled will be adequate for most ez1938s DOS games at their highest possible quality be sure to adjust video options as well. Alas, reserving IRQ7 which the Ensoniq setup decided upon for the card doesn’t seem to make a difference.

He is a member of the board of directors of Sensory, Inc. Historically, ESS Technology was most famous for their line of their Audiodrive chips for audio cards. And there it is! The use of scalers and pixel shaders in DOSBox would offer various results, sometimes better, other times worse.

It was said such settings can be changed only on BX motherboard which was at least a decade ago.

Two popular sound bites from the Commodore 64 were “He slimed me!!
