Asound ALS120 IDE Controller Driver

Pretty much average, it is what a sound card had to be back then, a DAC for outputan ADC for recording in full-duplex able to do both at the same time which is software based unless Asound ALS120 IDE Controller Wavetable card is attached.


The DIP package is a series op-amp. It also can be seen that an electrolytic capacitor has broken from the card in position C This appears to be just a smoothing cap and has no identifiable effects on operation.

This card is about on par with the Soundblaster Creative Soundblaster AWE64 Gold - While the 'AWE' thing was mostly a joke, submitter David Young comments that "It was the first Asound ALS120 IDE Controller card I had that wasn't obviously 'the computer' when connected to my stereo" and he has a point. It's important to understand that back then, MIDI was a very important feature.


The sample bank basic instrument sounds, which were then pitch-shifted by the hardware on Creative sound cards was usually fairly basic until the Wavetable was added, a much extended bank of sounds. Later, Creative would Asound ALS120 IDE Controller the sample bank into system RAM as a SoundFont as the PCI bus was more than fast enough to stream numerous audio channels over but it wouldn't be until the Audigy2 that Creative would make a decent PCI sound card and by then, MIDI was all but irrelevant, CPUs had become easily powerful enough to decode MP3 audio with negligible impact, something a DX66 needed almost all its available execution power to do.

Oh, and gold plated connectors. Because they make so much difference. For the same price as the Avance ALS, much better performance and high quality sound made these the sound cards of choice when they were new, blowing the SB16 clean out of the water the 86dB of the 16bit, Asound ALS120 IDE Controller card does have the positions soldered for a Wave Blaster wavetable card, but the header isn't affixed.

Asound ALS120 IDE Controller The layout of the card is a trademark of Asound ALS120 IDE Controller, it's neat and efficient high quality component placements contrast starkly with the cheap ALS The Soundblaster AWE64 was the last decent sound card that Creative Labs made until the Audigy 2 and even the Audigy 2 has its share of issues almost eight years later. In all, it was a quality built sound card utterly obsolete but with flawed implementation, especially in its OPL-3 output which uses a very clumsy second order sine wave generation, giving very bad harmonics.

The chipset here is completely different to the the AWE 64 Gold we also have. All consumer sound cards usually resample to a flat rate, but it's usually Various flame wars have been fought over the wisdom of this move. The output of the card betrays its heritage, the TDA datasheet dual power amplifier is clearly seen Asound ALS120 IDE Controller among smoothing capacitors, capable of two watts RMS per channel into a 4 ohm load; Easily enough to run the unpowered desktop speakers of the day.

Of course the standard jumper pair is present to override the amplifier.

Wave audio controller

A common trick back in the day was to flip only one jumper, leaving the user Asound ALS120 IDE Controller puzzle why one of his speakers is so very much louder than the other! Of course, each jumper would change the output of one of the stereo channels These dual power amplifiers are also quite ideal for portable headphone amplifiers and will run from a small 7.


The card itself was nothing special. Dell included it as a card and as an onboard device in several of their Dimension machines starting with the V series in because it was Asound ALS120 IDE Controller of the first stable and reliable PCI audio cards and these were cheaper than their bulky ISA cousins. Windows and XP will pick this up automatically.

Just for fun, compare the fullsize image of this card with Wikipedia's attempt of an earlier revision of the same card. This card is no longer supported in favour of the inferior CT model. The card, in hardware, does support quadrophonic sound, but the drivers Asound ALS120 IDE Controller do not enable this feature.

This is around the time when people started to really dislike Creative. Without a competent heatsink, as seen here, it won't be doing 22 watts. ST describes the TDA as "designed for car audio applications".
