The synth is usable from Linux, though getting it initialized can be a bit flaky. Labway and their drivers have gone to the ash heap of history. A PCI card with a single hardware clock that operates at Success was not reproducible on the PT Ultra chipset. The recommended drivers from Dell fail to install legacy audio. Although the hardware synth on Live!

Sound effects are still glitchy in DOOM and the synth still gets itself hosed.

PCI audio notes

EXE extender but it is not included. The major peculiarity of the new product is the integration of GDDR5 memory type with bit interface and support of multiple advanced technologies. This laptop combines a This graphics adapter is compatible with PCI Express 3. Notes indicate that some WDM drivers worked on the PT Ultra motherboard as far as regular Windows sounds and Windows Media Player were concerned, but games always locked up at launch.

DLL Each ds–xg has its own quirks.

EXE The installer in Dos This error has a workaround, but the workaround requires a newer version of ds-g drivers than Dell uses. Enhanced detail of Creative-branded ES chip. As with the SB Live! Cards targeted toward audio production of course had multiple hardware clocks but they care less about compatibility with DOS video games.


This card is designed for sound, not for gaming. There is no installer executable; they are installed through the “Browse” method when Windows searches for drivers. FM synth emulation is present but is terrible.

No analog input ouch. With no support for DOS or W98SE at all, the integrated sound on this motherboard wouldn’t be worth mentioning except that it was ridiculously hard to figure out how to get ds-cg working in Linux and I wanted to document the successful workaround. Labway and their drivers have gone to the ash heap of history.

natjve The audio speed is too high and probably misses chunks. I scrounged up the following files which I believe to be from the long-gone ForteMedia generic collection:.

For PCI cards the former question is inextricably bound to the motherboard chipset, and a bad choice of motherboard for testing will mean that most cards just won’t work.

If they will, some games still won’t work. As soon as you run a game the volume gets cranked up and is left that way after the game exits. I have now tested this card on three different chipsets. Aw724/yamah are 48 kHz and their OPL3 is still only an emulation, but their resampling is better and they come with a different soundfont. COM refuses to load or attempting to initialize sound in a game results in a crash, lockup, or spontaneous reboot, regardless of configuration.


Through this thread I located a pre-acquisition Ensoniq driver distro: No affiliation or endorsement is intended or implied.

Used if no command line option is specified. I was stuck with default volumes.

The Q3D driver set is unusable. OK, with the same drivers I got sound, but there are still problems.

After achieving success with the CT I just wanted to see if wd, 5. INI, so blindly copying the config file from one PC to another is likely to break something.
