The wavetable is muted by default, and it’s labelled ‘Aux1’ or something like that. The channels were correct everywhere else. I tried it, and yes, the problem is real. Only DMAs 0, 1, and 3 are selectable. Overall, this is very close to a GUS PnP, but there is something wonky about stereo voice, like it’s partly out of phase or something, and the balance is completely off on the CD analog audio input.

I could not get WSS to work in Mpxplay. The defaults that I got had the volume set to zero, bass and treble set to weird. At the time I presumed the empty solder pads all over the card had something to do with the wavetable header not working. It vos better than my old SB16 CT and one of the big benefits which I just realized is es168 PC speaker sound is now directed to the speakers Only downside is that the wavetable connector have been removed on the motherboard but it looks like you can solder it on though EDIT: BAT suffices to initialize the card on each boot.
Did you happen to notice if one was more speed sensitive than the se1688 If it’s V or below, you don’t have the bug. Having chosen the former, Mpxplay —sct detects only SBP.
ESS ES1688 Audio Drive ISA Sound Card
On ayou need to keep one serial port for the dow. On the downside, it doesn’t work right with DN3D, and it’s apparently an obscure chipset for which drivers are hard to find. Sound Blaster 16s have five fiddly settings that are frequently configurable: Alas, under DOS I was never able to get anything but monophonic wave voice sound. This site hosts no abandonware.

The only difference is that the PnP card needs an initialization program to set it up while the non-PnP card is ready to go. The channels are not reversed.
To get the module to load I had to specify the port ess1688. However, changing the latter jumpers to line level didn’t work right; the bass response went to zero like there was a short. Last one from the as-is lot! They just broke the default auto-detected Windows 98 SE drivers that were working albeit with es688 sound effects and channel-flipped stereo MIDI. EXE, which includes a memory test, won’t run. Stupid workaround is stupid:.
ISA go Bragh
I tested two of these that came in the as-is EBay lot. I have found a bug plaguing all the SB-Pro cards, but it doos it’s own thread. DOS setup for this card is infamous if not epic and deserves its own page.
The latter gets you the ROM sound font, which is hardly stellar as sound fonts go. Make sure the bit DMA channel is correct.
I did not try to guess the resources used when PnP is disabled. That is the DSP chip and the version number is on it and starts with V4xx.
While I have many Sound Blaster cards, I’m currently not using any of them. That never quite worked with the Audician 32 Plus for me. If you’re not in the mood for soldering, a CA-1 cable from HT Omega can be made to fit the AWE64 Gold header by snipping plastic bits off the front and back of the otherwise flat 2-pin connector. This PnP card uses a Media Vision chipset. It sometimes gets into a state that garbles OPL3 music and vos power cycle is needed to reset it.
Testing it is on my to do list though. The has a hardware wavetable header, but in saying that I have an example of the on which the ess1688 header did not work. The channels are not backwards when tested with speaker-test -b -c 2.
