This chipset was also natively supported in at least one game I tried, and that I like. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. As you can find in the ISA soundcard overview in my signature. However it also creates interference, so I stopped using this cable and only use it for recording PC speaker sounds. BTW what ever happened to RetroGames? My website with reviews, demos, drivers, tutorials and more Have been playing around with my integrated ESS in my Compaq.

Was a great card back in the day, excellent value and the compatibility was amazing. No more crappy Orchid that can’t read CD-Rs!
ESS ES1688 Audio Drive ISA Sound Card
Not the best at anything, but not bad at anything either, which is rare. This site hosts no abandonware.
If the wavetable header worked, I think this fs1688 would have topped the ESF. They’ve got to be 20 years old now, and they were off-brand caps to begin with. Go to this directory on your specific drive usually C: I’ll track down one with the onboard synth functionality too and see if that gives me some love. His hardware test threads were great. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA.

VOGONS • View topic – ESS AudioDrive (ES) – a surprisingly good ISA sound card
This chipset also includes the ESFM synth, just esss thewhich still sounds very nice here. Return to General Old Hardware. BTW what ever happened to RetroGames? Easy to use and Compatible for sure. Have been playing around with my integrated ESS in my Compaq.

Will the highways on the internets become more few? Would change the caps on these though. Still no action from the wavetable. At the time I presumed the empty solder pads all over the card had something to do with the wavetable header not working. Board index All times are UTC. You do not have the ew1688 permissions to view the files attached to this post.
Anyway I have another card with this chipset on the way so hopefully I have more luck with that one. I’m happy with it so far.

There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. That’s a bit crap.
I have several of these cards still around here somewhere. It sounds better than my old SB16 CT and one of the big benefits which I just realized is that PC speaker sound is now directed to the speakers Only downside is ee1688 the wavetable connector have been removed on the motherboard but it looks like you can solder it on though EDIT: Exs confuse the issue I found this information in the deep dark recesses of the interwebs: Users browsing this forum: Use the Win9x drivers attached to this post.
Setting it up was just as easy as before; my one and only problem with it was the wavetable header, which seems not to work. Without the onboard stuff, the header is useless too.
