Quite possible I used a simpler rendering than these cards provide. It won’t work in protected mode games that don’t use standard drivers or have direct GUS support ex: I picked up this handsome card recently and it’s the best AudioDrive I’ve found yet. And its GM support is through software. So they should work fine in games.

Ensoniq may have other versions available as daughterboards. I still have an LAPC So, at best, I’d say use it in tandem with an SB compatible card.

Thanks for the link! I quite like it. They generally offer a cheaper upgrade route.

Further to this we must then understand two more ‘3D terminologies’ – Sum and Difference This site hosts no abandonware.
