I haven’t found much saying what doesn’t support NMI, just that the BX does support it and you should get one of those. Why get an AWE32? Only one pin SIMM is required. The CT is smaller and has colored jacks, which may be a small plus. Looks like the AWE64 Value was a bust. Board index All times are UTC. Some sites claim that it possesses a bit high quality DAC, but that is not quite correct.

The AWE64 came in two versions initially: Models without RAM upgradeability: The cards tend to get less noisy as they get newer. If your Doom 1 setup menu doesn’t list the “AWE32” ct5400 an option, then you have a very old version of Doom 1 – you need to update to a later version version 1. This not only demands more processing power from the host system, but also is not of equal quality to available SoundFonts.

I’m going back to ch4500 roots The CT is smaller and has colored jacks, which may be a small plus. I also have an Extigy that I have never used.

If not, I’ll try if KernelEx will get it working. It offers a similar feature set, but also has a few notable improvements.


Finding boards with the CQM chips are much more common. Looks like the AWE64 Value was a bust. A third version that arrived later, was designed around the PCI bus.

They even use the same 2-pin header. They look good, but seem harsh sounding to me compared to what I would call the warmer sound of the Live Only downside is that it doesn’t have any onboard RAM, but it does have two pin simm slots. Unfortunately the SB card suffers from the “hanging notes” bug too.

The benefit is that you can then also load other soundfonts under Windows, which will then aw64 your music playback sound much better as opposed to being stuck with the standard 1 MB ROM sample tc4500 under DOS. Finally, there is no PNP or software selectable resource settings, the jumper layout of the original Sound Blaster 16s is used. The inability to adjust synthesis parameters, unlike with the hardware portion of the AWE64, also limited the WaveGuide function’s usefulness.

However, if you find a board with the Yamaha chip, note that you will not be able to run the chip through the EMU effects processor. The adapter came in two variants: I’ll eventually add a Dreamblaster to my Vortex2 card and see how that sound.

Users browsing this forum: Tried an X-FI Titanium The technology, called WaveGuidesynthesizes the instrument sounds rather than using stored instrument patches like the hardware voices. I miss the old days. Fortunately ct45000 Mitsumi interface can usually be disabled.

I think my original was a CT Another improvement comes from better on-board circuitry that increases the signal-to-noise ratio and overall signal quality compared to the frequently quite noisy AWE32 and Sound Blaster 16 boards.

Interesting info – thank you very much for that!!! This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA.

If there is a standard AWE64 floating aroun, its not very common. I have some original Live cards, and they are a decent pci adaptation. Maybe this was a revision?

The project was dropped in favor of the Sound Blaster Live!

I’ll have to wait though.
