Best of all, it is a single-slot solution that replaces your existing sound card, so there are no messy driver issues or audio pass-through cables to worry about. AudioPCI had some surprises for the market. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. 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. David Katzmaier updates his advice for cord-cutters, the Marriott cyberattack may be the work of Chinese spies, and Intel chips score a breakthrough. Audio Max Sampling Rate.

Creative Sound Blaster Ensoniq PCI (50E3711001) Sound Card

The chip was capable of spatializing all audio automatically, but still required DirectSound3D usage for specific localization of sounds. Retrieved from ” https: For few soundcards feature multiple quartzes or a PLL, resampling is often used with all its potential problems.

It was Ensoniq’s last sound card product before they were acquired by Creative Technology. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This mode allowed fast, direct access to the system’s enzoniq RAM without requiring a memory manager or memory protection mechanism.

Great features and good sound, but fills a narrow niche Great features and good sound, but fills a narrow niche by Ty Pendlebury.

Phones by Shara Tibken Dec 5, Whereas the Soundscape line had been made up primarily of low-volume fs 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.

The jack switches modes if 4-speaker output became active. AudioPCI, while designed to be cheap, is still quite functional. About this product Product Information Step up to a higher level of PC audio quality and system performance.

Creative Labs Malvern which was the former Ensoniq company that had been acquired later released the 137 EV 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.

An oddity is that the rear channel was connected to the same output jack as line input. The card represented a shift in Ensoniq’s market positioning. The enwoniq consists only of a very small software-driven audio chip one of the following: This was made possible by the move to the PCI buswith its far greater bandwidth and more efficient bus mastering interface when compared to the older ISA bus standard.


It was one of the first cards to have Microsoft DirectSound3D 4-speaker playback support.

In comparison to the wide variety of chips on and sheer size of the older Soundscape boards, the highly integrated two chip design of the AudioPCI is an obvious shift in design philosophy. Pressure from intense competition, especially with the dominant Creative Labswas forcing audio card makers to try to keep their enssoniq low.

Besides, you can play up to 32 notes simultaneously, creating a symphonic audio reproduction on your PC. See details for description of any imperfections.

It is also disappointing considering the incredible popularity and longevity of the Ensoniq ES chipset and its descendants, some of which were still in use six years after the original AudioPCI board, and the fact that DOS drivers for the far newer Sound Blaster Audigy still use “. 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.
