I dug through my box of sound cards looking for a replacement and tried an: This card is SB Pro compatible and sounds fantastic, very clean and crisp. I haven’t had a chance to try any of the ISA AudioDrives but I’m looking forward to giving this baby a spin once it arrives. Setup was easy enough and the Sound Blaster Pro compatibility seemed to be good, but it sounded like my speakers had been immersed in water. The DOS software — which can be found on Vogon Drivers — is bare bones but is easy to use and powerful. The 71x can supposedly do that, however the setup program doesn’t know how.

There was a certain ESS card I tried and didn’t like because it could only play a couple of sounds at a time, or would play the first half of a sound and cut off the rest. I was about to give up and put the SB16 back do when I noticed this humble looking card, pulled 1886 a junked Socket 7 machine at some time in the past and kept because it had a wavetable header: I have an integrated ES soundcard in my Compaq.
It seems to give popping noises on anything other than a Sound Blaster. Google [Bot]realoldguy23 and fss guests. I haven’t had a chance to try any of the ISA AudioDrives but I’m looking forward to giving this baby a spin once it arrives.

There is also an issue with the game port on this card, detailed in the linked thread above. Also the game had some minor SFX issues on that particular codec. Any chance you could give it a go with SoftMPU?
