The board consists only of a very small software-driven audio chip one of the following: End of Service Life. I think it’s designed for I also have 2 Voodoo cards I quickly want to test. The Ensoniq ES audio chip was renamed Creative and revised into AC’97 -compliant variants, the ES and ES, and used for several more years on card and as integrated motherboard audio. I don’t really like AudioPCI that much.

This update supports the following products: These registers are used by the ES and later models. These were just rebranded by Creative for the cards they sold based on these chips. An oddity is that the rear channel was connected to the same output jack as line input.

It’s too barebones and it has PCI issues sometimes. 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.

This mode allowed fast, direct access to the system’s entire RAM without requiring a memory manager or memory protection mechanism. Last edited by Mau1wurf on creativs In a nutchell, IMHO, the best bet for a sound card that does similar things and has similar features would be an old Sound Blaster Live “Value” edition The PCI Subclass and Revision registers can be used to detect exactly which model is installed, and each model has similar but not identical register sets.


Elite has some reverb and chorus enabled by default and you can tweak it with sysex commands. The jack switches modes if 4-speaker output became active. This package is not applicable to model CT 2-channel audio card.

When Disc Detector is installed in your computer, the Autorun or Autoplay feature in Windows may become disabled. I did two recordings. When Creative got involved, they upgraded the chip a couple of times, and renamed the chip to ES and then ES There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. I have so many folders it’s getting hard to navigate in DOS.

Creative Ensoniq AudioPCI Driver Update (11/19/2001)

Note that this driver will give you SB16 and General Midi compatibility, but Soundscape support doesn’t work! It’s a big ZIP file with all the recordings: Download this patch only if the Autorun or Autoplay feature is disabled; there is no need to download it otherwise. It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support.

In comparison to the wide variety of chips on and sheer size of the older Soundscape boards, the highly integrated two chip design of the AudioPCI is an obvious shift in design philosophy. Then I got a Live!


If for some reason, you need to reinstall Disc Detector, run this patch again. Support for such products is limited to online materials, such as Knowledgebase Solutionsdrivers, application updates and product documentations available on the Creative Customer Support website.

Ensoniq AudioPCI

I have tested and upladed both drivers. It was particularly unfortunate because the AudioPCI used system RAM for patch set storage enslniq in itself offers tremendous potential for new patch sets over the traditional ROM storage previously used. The card represented a shift in Ensoniq’s market positioning. This page was last edited on 8 Octoberat At this point, the audio should begin playing. I highly recommend the 8MB soundfont.
