It’s using the ESF chipset, the specs of which can be found here: Do sbiload —v 1 to see evidence that it has loaded std. Don’t bother—the music is just as messed up with or without an Audii. PAT for whatever they’re worth. Added jumper J6 and pin header P2, functions unknown.

EXE is likewise easy to use, and allowed me to set the MIDI and CD volumes both muted by defaultand the volume levels were perfect first time which is a rare thing in my experience.

The default mixer settings are reasonable given whatever output level the unmarked jumpers have selected. Often it will get wedged and cause driver failures after a warm reboot. CFG file and change the value of Dma0 or Dma1 as needed. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Nothing remains in memory after it runs, so it ought to have been built as an EXE.
Possible kernel regression here. Despite the prominent MegaImage32 label on the back, I still cannot identify this card with any well-known make and model. These cards are great for both windows and dos retro gaming. This site hosts no abandonware.
