Pressure from intense competition, especially with the dominant Creative Labs , was forcing audio card makers to try to keep their prices low. Towards the end of the s, Ensoniq was struggling financially. Creative ES Audio Driver 5. The board consists only of a very small software-driven audio chip one of the following: I also have 2 Voodoo cards I quickly want to test. They seem to operate at

So with these games just select Soundscape. This was made possible by the move to the PCI buswith its far greater bandwidth and more efficient bus mastering interface when compared to the older ISA bus standard. Note that this driver will es13770 you SB16 and General Midi compatibility, but Soundscape support doesn’t work!

Users browsing this forum: When Creative got involved, they upgraded the chip a couple of times, and renamed the chip to ES and then Es11370 When paired with a capable codecsuch as the AK pre-AC’97the ES supported the then-latest in ea1370 audio positioning through 4-speaker surround sound.

It was Ensoniq’s last sound card product before they were acquired by Creative Technology.


Whereas the Soundscape line had been made up primarily of low-volume high-end products full of features, the AudioPCI was designed to be a very simple, low-cost product to appeal to system OEMs and thus hopefully sell in mass quantities. 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 system RAM as storage for this audio data.

It’s definitely noticable in the percussion where I don’t feel they have as much definition. But there should also be DOS games that work with the Voodoo 2 right? In SQ4 I updated the Sound Blaster driver patch for faster cpu but after a while the speech will just loop. 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.

Therefore, if you wish to install this audio version, click the download button and apply the package.

Therefore, it was practical to configure DOS games to utilize the General MIDI synthesizer and digital sound effects, whenever possible, for better sound quality.


The driver is used all the way up to Audigy 2, I think. They may have a demos section. I would also add that another drawback is the need for EMM to be loaded in order for the sound auduopci to work in DOS, which prevents some older games from running e. These were just rebranded by Creative for the cards they sold based on these chips. It’s a big ZIP file with all the recordings: I have tested and upladed both drivers. I should install W95 it seems.

The 8MB patch set is hardly an improvement over the 4MB. Ensoniq tried something new with the AudioPCI which was going after the value market!

ECW file e1s370 and a custom waveset. The older Soundscape has a better guitar too actually. This will help if you installed an incorrect or mismatched driver. So you are guaranteed that these drivers will work if you have a card that looks like the one in the picture above.

The card represented a shift in Ensoniq’s market positioning. Webarchive template wayback links.
