As you can see on the image, there aren’t many components on this card at all The main difference between the EV and previous chips was the inclusion of a built-in AC’97 codec hence producing a cheaper, single chip audio solution. Not sure about DOS V2 demos Midi only works well however. The board consists only of a very small software-driven audio chip one of the following: Elite has some reverb and chorus enabled by default and you can tweak it with sysex commands. When Creative got involved, they upgraded the chip a couple of times, and renamed the chip to ES and then ES

Special Note This file requires a supported card, driver and operating system before this file can be installed. Ensoniq tried something new with the AudioPCI which was going after the value market! Midi only works well however. The Aueio 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.
Ensoniq AudioPCI – Wikipedia
It’s too barebones and it has PCI issues sometimes. The 8MB patch set is hardly an improvement over the 4MB.
I have so many folders it’s getting pic to navigate in DOS. CFG file but couldn’t see an option to use the external midi port. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It also supported up to 48kHz PCM input and output and up to 4 channels in some configurations.
Whereas the Soundscape line had been made up primarily of low-volume high-end products full of features, the AudioPCI was designed to be a very simple, low-cost product to appeal to system OEMs and thus hopefully sell in mass quantities. This process is not well documented in the Ensoniq spec sheets. 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.
Notably, AudioPCI supports several digital effects reverbaufioand spatial enhancement when used with Microsoft Windows 95 and later versions of Windows. Makes it sound very dry, like the regular Soundscape card.

Elite has some reverb and chorus enabled by default and you can tweak it with sysex commands. AudioPCI had some surprises for the market.
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. Please note that this file is only applicable if there is a Creative driver supporting for you card and operating system.
Download this patch only if the Autorun or Autoplay feature is disabled; there is no need to download it otherwise. It’ll take a bit though since I need to reinstall Windows on that thing. Also, this card pdi an interesting history.
It was Ensoniq’s last sound card product before they were acquired by Creative Technology. These registers are used by the ES and later models.
The 11 KHz cutoff is easily seen on a graphic equalizer Winamp Ozone plugin here. TXT file for further details. This update supports the following products: It pco one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support. However, in looped mode, the audio will continue playing, and will loop around to the start of the audio buffer when the end of the buffer is reached.

So with these games just select Soundscape. Space Quest 5 doesn’t start with Sound Blaster enabled. As you can see on the image, enspniq aren’t many components on this card at all An oddity is that the rear esnoniq was connected to the same output jack as line input.
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
