I picked up this card for a few bucks because I wanted to try out the ES chipset http: Go to this directory on your specific drive usually C: His hardware test threads were great.

Would change the caps on these though. Unlike the ES chipset, which preceded the ES, this card should in theory not require a driver for the wavetable header, i.
Use the Win9x drivers attached to this post. Do you know what kind of synth these ESS cards are designed for?
This chipset also includes the ESFM synth, just like thewhich still sounds very esss here. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here.
Was a great card back in the day, excellent value and the compatibility was amazing. They’ve got to be 20 years old now, and they were off-brand caps to begin with.
My website with reviews, demos, drivers, tutorials and more I have several of these cards still around here somewhere.
