The appears to be the highest model that does not use PnP and also has a Wave Blaster header. But the actual yamaha OPL3 chip is right there near the letter “V1”. There isn’t a whole lot of information about this company besides what’s on their webpage. Anyone knows what kind of OPL it has? I ask because I don’t have my “retro boxes” with me right now in order to run testings. Thanks to the folks over at Vogons , it was revealed that there were many other kinds of compatible sound cards and clones that were as good, if not better, than their Creative counterparts. The one thing I’m not too fond of is the clarity of the OPL3.

Throughout the years, Aztech developed a number of different chipsets that implement various portions of the Sound Blaster protocol. It’d be cool to find out how it sounds!
I have a quick question pertaining to this thread. Aztexh jesolo, thanks for the quick reply. Hence, why I prefer not to use these older cards in anything faster than a based system. This version features a I read that it has hardware MPU interface, but I suppose it’s not an intelligent one? I used to connect to my Internet dial-up service back then and it worked fine as far as I remember.
The default settings for this card are: Do you want me to test in the K as well? As they are all 16bit isa sb clones I was a bit aztecn how they varied: I identified the wrider96 directory on aztechs ftp as the correct driver source.
The based Aztech cards lack a lowpass filter but 2230 are far more successful SBPro clone.
Aztech ISA Sound Cards
All the cards with a “NX” suffix do. Has a built-in 33Kbps modem plus a few headers for midi and cd audio. The raised portion of the card in the middle is part of the modem logic What little info that is out there says the Rockwell chip is a “modem data pump” chip Spreadsheet info: Many aztech cards seem to retain a yamaha OPL3.
First and second generation cards those that are not AZT or AZT are said to be timing sensitiveso if you have a particularly fast machine faster than a then you might be better off getting a third generation card AZT instead.

This will be a constantly updated post as new information becomes available. Is it any good? Turning the Digital, FM and Master volumes of the mixer up will bring them higher than the noise floor of the system thus maximizing signal-to-noise ration.
Aztedh, you’ll find a driver version that can initialize your card. Reply with quote Re: There is no material that is knowingly illegal here.
Even if you only have Doom or TIE fighter that will do.
Not very noisy and should tick all the boxes, based on your requirements. If you are looking for a Sound Blaster Pro 2 compatible card without paying a similar price, the AZT based cards aren’t a bad buy. Do you have Doom to test if the sounds are reversed, and Prince of Persia to test if the game freezes? What’s interesting about cards that come from Aztech is they tend to replicate features from the Sound Blaster extremely well.
There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. I think Rabanik writes up a whole compendium while I plan something more rudimentary to offer a short overview with all the key fatures of the relevant cards from Aztech. Aztech also manufactured and retailed some of their own cards under the Sound Galaxy name.
Can’t call this card quiet at all, at least with low-impedance headphones. How could I forget about it?
Now I see real picture first in the netit was worst Aztech card ever. Based on an older posts viewtopic.
