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 eess rare thing in my experience.

Professor Mozer’s technique not only produced very realistic sounding speech, it also required very little on-chip later, in software RAMa sparse and expensive commodity at that time. In the mids, ESS started working on making PC audio, and later, video chips, and created the Audiodrive line, used in hundreds of different products. I haven’t had a chance to try any of the ISA AudioDrives but I’m looking forward to giving this baby a spin once it arrives.

I bought it new for a Pentium if I remember correctly. The ES datasheet http: I believe it has more channels than the real thing, which the Windows MIDI driver can use for full 4-op sound.

It must have been late High end home and portable audio players come with ESS dac chips. The advanced compression algorithm patented, an early form of psychoacoustic compression using similar spectra of ADPCM-encoded waves reduced the memory footprint of speech about a hundredfold, so one second of speech would require 90 to bytes.


This chip was also used in a few arcade games, notably Atari ‘s Wolf Packand Stern Electronics ‘ Berzerk and Frenzyand in several of Stern ‘s pinball machines.
