Unfortunately, Vibra 16S sound card was wrapped and I am lazy to opening them. Deleted one SIMM slot and the memory size jumper block. They just broke the default auto-detected Windows 98 SE drivers that were working albeit with monophonic sound effects and channel-flipped stereo MIDI. I wants my Duke3D. They’ve got to be 20 years old now, and they were off-brand caps to begin with. Setting it up was just as easy as before; my one and only problem with it was the wavetable header, which seems not to work. Despite the prominent MegaImage32 label on the back, I still cannot identify this card with any well-known make and model.

And looking at your site it seems the CT is the only Vibra16S you have tested.

An incorrectly guessed irq results in looping music. This problem is resolved by pressing the reset button. BAT each and every time the card is initialized. It is a working clone technically, but because of the mismatched instruments I find it unacceptable.

Was a great card back in the day, excellent value and the compatibility was amazing. DN3D music is still glitched. There is also an issue with the game port on this card, detailed in the linked thread above.


Usually the complaint is “EMM incompatibility problem: Creative cards often have variants, aufio within the same model number. Reducing it to 22 kHz solves the problem. DN3D sound effects are crackly when the mixer rate is set to 44 kHz.

Exiting and restarting it with no command-line switches seems to purge the problem, but it recurs. Sound cards that use two DMAs for full-duplex operation recording and playing at the same time will usually fall back to half-duplex mode if the two DMAs are set to the same value.

The channels are not backwards when tested with speaker-test -b -c 2. I dug through my box of sound cards looking for a replacement and tried an: All of my Sound Blasters had the hanging note bug. It’s an international shipment so I’m still waiting: Does it work in an 8-bit slot? In DOOM, the volume fluctuates strangely as if the music were interfering with itself.

BAT suffices to initialize the card on each boot. I wonder if this messes with output quality at all? All PCM input had to be resampled to the one frequency that the hardware supported.


I think it must need Windows 95 or DOS 6. I have never gotten MegaEm 3. The UIDE incompatibility is completely gone.

PAT for whatever they’re worth. The company was created at least partially as a way to market Mozer’s speech synthesis system described in US patents 4,, 4, and 4, after his 3-year, summer to summerextended contract with National Semiconductor expired in or so. So what do you do if those resources are already assigned to other PnP devices? Use the Win9x drivers attached to this post. Fortunately, ALSA does have a driver for this variant.

I haven’t tried the but if you read the spec sheet google for ityou’ll find that the wavetable header requires a TSR. I just download it today.

Even with the traditional orientation, a full-sized daughterboard may collide with the ISA slot. This chipset also includes the ESFM synth, just like the drlve, which still sounds very nice here. This card does several things right.
