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. Not the best at anything, but not bad at anything either, which is rare. As you can find in the ISA soundcard overview in my signature. Too all Windows 98 users of this card. I have several of these cards still around here somewhere. That’s a bit crap. Anyway I have another card with this chipset on the way so hopefully I have more luck with that one.

Users browsing this forum: To confuse the issue I found this information in the deep dark recesses of the interwebs: The MPU was recognised no problem, I just never got any sound.
