Now because Ensoniq was purchased by Creative, there are two drivers floating around! Then I got a Live! 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. As you can see on the image, there aren’t many components on this card at all Towards the end of the s, Ensoniq was struggling financially.

Ensoniq AudioPCI

While Ensoniq’s approach generally worked with most games, some older games had problems detecting the virtualized hardware on some systems. Download this patch only if the Autorun pcii Autoplay feature is disabled; there is no need to download it otherwise.

I notice however you guys are talking about it topping off at 22Khz which is strange to me because it certainly seems like my AudioPCI was clearer and probably at a full 44Khz it sounds closer to the linked Soundscape Elite recordings thread. This was a smart cost saving measure! Last edited by ux-3 on Special Note This file requires a supported card, driver and operating system before this file can be installed.

It doesn’t have a clone chip either. In SQ4 I updated the Sound Blaster driver patch for faster cpu but after a while ensonqi speech will just loop. Users browsing this forum: I have so many folders it’s getting hard to navigate in DOS.


Pressure from intense competition, especially with the dominant Creative Labswas forcing audio card makers to try to keep their prices low.

Elite has some reverb and chorus enabled by default and you can tweak it with sysex commands. Also, this card has an interesting history.

Ensoniq Es1370 PCI Audio 3000 Sound Card

With many though not all gravitating to external midi devices e. It’s too barebones and it has PCI issues sometimes.

When Creative got involved, they upgraded the chip a couple of times, and renamed the chip to ES and then ES In other projects Wikimedia Commons. This patch is for products bundled with Creative Disc Detector. Then I got a Live!

The Ensoniq ES audio chip was renamed Creative and revised into AC’97 -compliant variants, the ES and ES, and used for several more years on card and as integrated motherboard audio. The chip was also a PCI bus master device that was designed to provide high-speed access to system RAM and resources, for sample synthesis data and effect processing. The following Wikipedia webpage has quite a lot of info about it – http: Maybe the W95 driver support this?

Now because Ensoniq was purchased by Creative, there are two drivers floating around! In comparison to the wide variety of chips on and sheer size of the older Soundscape boards, the highly integrated two chip design of the AudioPCI is an obvious shift in design philosophy.


ECW file specification and a custom waveset. Last edited by Mau1wurf on AudioPCI, while designed to be cheap, is still quite functional. It is also the only sound card model currently supported in VMWare virtual machines. 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.

When Disc Detector is installed in your computer, the Autorun or Audo feature in Windows may become adio. This process is not well documented in the Ensoniq spec sheets.

But the bigger patch sets change the guitar out and ennsoniq sounds much better. These registers are used by the ES and later models. The PCI Subclass and Revision registers can be used to detect exactly which model is installed, and each model has similar but not identical register sets.

Done it’s as easy as that!
