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 997 mode. How To Receive Warranty Service. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It also supported up to 48kHz PCM input and output and up to 4 channels in some configurations.
One important feature of this chip was that it used the PCI bus, instead of the ISA bus commonly used by sound cards at that point. However, according to the documentation, it was designed to be used as a software MIDI synthesizer channel. This process is not well documented in the Ensoniq spec sheets. It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support.
These registers are used by the ES and later models. The Playback 1 channel should work in a similar fashion.
Creative Disc Detector Patch Filesize: The package will contain the following: Retrieved enzoniq ” https: The Ensoniq 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. Download this patch only if the Autorun or Autoplay feature is disabled; there is no need to download it otherwise.
The 4-speaker mode is only activated by software supporting the DirectSound3D quadraphonic mode. Retrieved from ” https: About This site Joining Editing ensoniqq Recent changes.
Resampling means lower sound quality, worse synchronization and possibly higher CPU utilization. This patch is for products bundled with Creative Disc Detector.
The chip was also a PCI bus master device that was designed to provide high-speed access to system RAM and resources, for sample synthesis data and effect processing. This was made possible by the move to enxoniq PCI buswith its far greater bandwidth and more efficient bus mastering interface when compared to the older ISA bus standard.

Notably, AudioPCI supports several digital effects reverbchorusand spatial enhancement when used with Microsoft Windows 95 and later versions of Windows. This page was last modified on 15 Decemberat While Ensoniq’s approach generally worked with most games, some older games had problems detecting the virtualized hardware on some systems.
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, For a complete listing of downloads, you can manually search our database.
By setting the Frame Count register to play half of the audio buffer, you will receive an interrupt when the first half of the buffer has been played. The card represented a shift in Ensoniq’s market positioning.

It was particularly unfortunate because the AudioPCI used system RAM for patch set storage which in itself offers tremendous potential for new patch sets over the traditional ROM storage previously used. Their cards were very popular with PC OEMsbut their costs were too high and their musical instrument division dnsoniq fading in revenue.
The jack switches modes if 4-speaker output became active. However, in looped mode, the audio will continue playing, and will loop around to the start of the 79 buffer when the end of the buffer is reached.
