Then I got a Live! Makes it sound very dry, like the regular Soundscape card. Midi only works well however. In SQ4 I updated the Sound Blaster driver patch for faster cpu but after a while the speech will just loop. When programs took full advantage of the API’s capabilities, the ES was capable of both global spatial and localized 3D sound effects, in both 2 and 4-speaker mode.

However, according to the documentation, it was designed to be used as a software MIDI synthesizer channel. The Sample Rate Converter allows audio data to be converted to 48 kHz on the fly, and must be programmed with the proper values to perform the conversion from lower sample rates 8, 22, Last aydiopci by Mau1wurf on In a nutchell, IMHO, the best bet for a sound card that does similar things and has similar features would be an old Sound Blaster Live “Value” edition They seem to operate at Creatives Driver which will give you Soundblaster 16 and General Midi compatibility Many games had native support for Ensoniq Soundscape.


It was Ensoniq’s last sound card product before they were acquired by Creative Technology. In addition, the DOS driver required a memory manager such as EMM to be loaded, which not only required additional conventional memory space but also put the CPU into Virtual mode, conflicting with games that utilized a modified form of protected modecalled ‘flat mode’. I think the chip was labelled ES End of Service Life.

It also supported up to 48kHz PCM aduiopci and output and up to 4 channels in some configurations. When Creative got involved, they upgraded the chip a couple of times, and renamed the chip to ES and then ES Resampling means lower sound quality, worse synchronization and possibly higher CPU utilization.

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. You can download them here: However, the formulas used to calculate the proper values can be found in various open source drivers for Linux and Windows CE.

For a complete listing of downloads, you can manually search our database.

Therefore, it was practical to configure DOS games to utilize the General MIDI synthesizer and digital sound ess1371, whenever possible, for better sound quality. Then I got a Live!

It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

The following pseudo-code is used to program the Sample Rate Converter to a specific sample rate. Now because Ensoniq was purchased by Creative, there are two drivers floating around!

How To Receive Warranty Service. Maybe the W95 driver support this?

These were just rebranded by Creative for the cards they sold based on these chips. Space Quest 4 and 5 sound really good!
