This was made possible by the move to the PCI bus , with its far greater bandwidth and more efficient bus mastering interface when compared to the older ISA bus standard.

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.


When paired with a capable codecsuch as the AK pre-AC’97the ES supported the then-latest in 3D audio positioning through 4-speaker surround sound. While Ensoniq’s approach generally worked with most games, some older games had problems detecting the virtualized hardware on some systems.

How To Receive Warranty Service. Their cards were very popular with PC OEMsbut their costs were too high and their musical instrument division was fading in revenue. This page was last edited on 8 Octoberat 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.

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.
